I’m in foster. Submit an application to start the online adoption counseling process.

Please read the info below before applying to adopt!

  • Animal ID#: A306277
  • Dog Name: Charlie
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 1.5 years
  • This guy could not be any softer or sweeter. He tries so hard to be courageous and approach for some lovins, but only has a few seconds in him before he tries to flee. He’s a total marshmallow who would benefit greatly from some confidence building. He participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and playful dogs. He’s a lovely boy who’s far too soft for the shelter. In a calm home with a loving family, we think he’ll thrive!!!

Submit an application to start the online adoption counseling process or to find out more about Charlie.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
