Meet Charlie

Charlie is a 3-year-old Shepherd mix - she's shy at first but falls in love with people very quickly. She's quite timid around men, especially if they are standing and/or speaking loudly, but she will warm up to men she is around regularly. She is great with children but we would use caution around very young children as she does have a fearful streak and she also jumps when she gets excited. She is fearful when kenneled and has some separation anxiety - her previous family was worried that she would hurt herself trying to escape so instead they typically gate her in a smaller tiled area when away from home.

Charlie would benefit from a home where she can take good walks once to twice a day to keep her energy low. She's intelligent and remembers "Sit" well, but would benefit from someone who can spend more time working on obedience skills. She does well staying off the furniture except when there are thunderstorms where she tries to cuddle and hide behind her human.

Charlie does have some special medical needs. She had surgery in the fall to remove stones from her bladder and is on prescription food to help prevent further problems with stones forming. When her previous family orders the prescription food online they spend about $50 every 4-6 weeks.
