A volunteer writes: “She’s so special” said another volunteer, and boy, is she ever! She’s a gorgeous blonde, soft, sweet, easy, gentle and an oasis in the midst of a hectic day. Excited to be out for a walk to show off her housetraining skills, once her business is done she walks at a lovely pace with me. Checking up as we walk, her tail wags gently as we chat. She has that certain something that has everyone smiling at her and wanting to meet her, and she accepts all friendship offers with grace and calm. Charlie was surrendered to our care as her family no longer has time for her; she comes with an outstanding resume that includes that she’s good with children, is housetrained when walked at least 2x a day, ignores cats on the street, is crate trained but doesn’t need it as she’s well behaved when left home alone, lived gently with a male dog, knows ‘sit’, ‘come’ and ‘got to spot’ (bed), and doesn’t guard her stuff. I loved my time with Charlie, and off leash when I sat to take some notes she came over to me to rest her head in my lap. Showing off her sit, Charlie takes treats with the very edge of her teeth that I could barely feel her. My time with her confirmed that she is so very special, and when she tilts her head at me and looks at me with big soft eyes I’m ready to run away with her. You, lucky adopter, can do just that. Run, don’t walk to meet Miss Charlie now.
Charlie is a Staffordshire that is 5 years old. Charlie was adopted from ACC. Since has been the owner loyal companion ever since. However the owner can no longer care for the Charlie due to a very busy schedule. Charlie has no known illness.
Charlie has lived with 2 adults in the home. She is playful and very affectionate. She loves belly rubs and being petted. Charlie has been introduced to children of various ages and enjoys being rubbed on her back. She also rolls over on her back playful when playing with children.

FOR NEW FAMILIES TO KNOW
Charlie is described as playful, submission and friendly. She bows her head when meeting new people and slowly approach to be petted. She rolls on her back gently and playfully around children. She does not care for dog toys but loves a rawhide or bone. She knows the command “sit” “come” and “go to spot” to go to bed.
