A volunteer writes: A megawatt smile, a pudgy little figure, twinkling eyes and the cutest ears ever – put it all together and you have Charlotte! Add to the mix, an affectionate personality (in my lap giving kisses), nice leash manners, housetraining skills (‘went’ as soon as we were outside), friendly tail wags to all, a ‘sit’ when asked and a lie down froggy style while waiting for me and you have the sweetest little girl who’s hoping you’ll come meet her. Charlotte didn’t like my treats but agreed to pose for some pictures anyway, flashing her gorgeous smile stopping a passerby in his tracks to compliment her! Yes, she’s that adorable! I kept calling her my little pork chop….or my little tan tootsie roll! Clearly fed with love, her fun and social personality wins friends where ever she goes, and in her first playgroup she enjoyed some soft play when solicited by the male greeter. Charlotte was found playing with other dogs in a dog park with no owner present, so was brought to our care. She’s weaving her web of love and good will hoping you’ll meet her and decide you can’t live without her. We hope so too!
Another volunteer writes: Add to Miss Charlotte’s incredible resume the fact that she’s a helper dog! That’s an important job here, welcoming new dogs into playgroup – it means she’s great with other dogs of both genders and makes others feel comfortable. So, whether snuggling, chilling, greeting, or being out for an easy walk, Miss Charlotte is our superstar, waiting to be yours!
Her foster writes: Charlotte is a very low key, low-maintenance fully trained perfect houseguest. She is very content getting lots of hugs and kisses but is also content laying in front a fan watching TV with you. She always greets you with a tail wag and that big ole grin. She is very calm in the apartment and when meeting people, i.e. no barking, jumping up. Even friends that are scared of dogs wanted to take her for a walk down the street. She loves cheese and will do just about anything to get a piece.
Charlotte wants to meet every dog there is. She will lay down when she sees a dog always hoping/expecting a hello from the other pup. While cute, this behavior will have to be followed up on as not every dog on the street is as excited to meet her. I never brought Charlotte to a dog park but feel that she would be very happy to romp along with other pups in a park. Charlotte loves to play tug of war with rope…she is getting quite good at it though haha. She also was a big fan of her squeaky toy, and would play with it by rolling onto her back with it in her mouth. I didn’t play ball with her but she has shown interest in them as well. All in all, Charlotte would be perfect for someone who wants a dog but doesn’t want all the dog responsibilities. Charlotte loves to lounge around, can be left alone and is fully housebroken. She also doesn’t enjoy long walks, and while affectionate, isn’t overly so. She gets excited but will immediately deescalate once play ceases.
Charlotte pulls a bit on the leash. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Charlotte followed the assessor at the end of the leash with a calm and relaxed body language when playing tag. She took the toy away but had soft body language.
Finder brought Charlotte to our shelter. According to the finder she found her playing at the dog park without an owner. She was relaxed and playing exuberantly with other dogs. Her finder brought her to ACC with his small dog. In the lobby, she approached the small dog, Charlotte’s body loose and wiggly”.
