Chase is a 6 month old male terrier, setter and lab mix. He was surrendered by his owner who was not in a position to give him the puppy training he required. He’s a little jumpy and nippy but has come a long way in the short time he’s been with us. Now getting exercised daily and meeting some small behaviour expectations like sitting to receive reward, he’s already starting to shine. He’s got a very kind heart and will be an easy “fixer upper” for an owner who has time to work with him.
We’d prefer a home with no small children and no cats. He’s not aggressive but the distractions would make training more difficult.
Dogs generally no matter how gentle they are, show some aggression when a situation arises that scares or threatens them; a stranger coming up the driveway, an unfamiliar dog on their turf. Charlie seems to have been born without the ability to anger.
He walks up to kennels and has no idea that the barking dog inside there is protecting its territory. The dog is usually dumbfounded when Charlie approaches, wagging his tail like he’s an old friend dropping by for a visit. Quickly the dog learns, Charlie is no threat. He seems to get along with every dog he meets.
He almost instantly puts even the most cautious cat at ease. He is absolutely non-invasive and leaves the decision to approach to the cat. He’s an absolute doll with people.
Charlie’s premature greying masks his youthful energy and he has been estimated to be about 6 years old. Charlie rarely barks except when it’s time for his walk. He does a little jump and an excited “beagle bae” by the door. He loves to play with other dogs and he and Thunder wear each other out, wrestling in the exercise yard.
If you speak to or hold him abruptly Charlie stiffens and cowers. It’s very sad to think that an animal that only knows to treat others with kindness has learned to expect to be mistreated. Charlie needs to feel safe in a loving home and is available for adoption.
Charlie has been examined and will need to be neutered and have some work done on his teeth. We think Charlie is well worth the investment into his health.
We are currently looking for donations toward his care which is estimated to be a minimum of $800.00.
