Charlie ~ in Northern California

Looking for a Home

charlie If you're looking for an outgoing, high energy silky-poo, Charlie is your man. He is about 2 years old, already has all his shots and is neutered, and has some basic obedience training. Charlie loves to give kisses and play, is high energy, and is very vocal.

I don't think Charlie has been treated very well, at times he refuses to come near any of us. It's as if he doesn't trust us, and is afraid of being hurt. I do see signs of abuse in this dog, but he is doing great despite that. Charlie was rescued from the animal shelter in Bakersfield, Ca.

Charlie gets along great with my other dogs, and my cats, and is ok with my kids. He is very high energy, and likes to jump. I haven't actually measured it, but I'm sure Charlie can jump 5 feet straight up into the air. He is very long legged, and did I mention he's high energy?

Charlie will need lots of love and attention to be able to trust humans again. He is food motivated, but not an overeater. Being quite thin when he got here, Charlie's gained a couple of pounds and looks much better now.

charlie We are looking for a wonderful, forever home for Charlie. We prefer not to ship him, so anyone interested in adopting him will need to come and meet him (although we would be willing to help by meeting the adopters part way). Charlie is in northern California at this time. His new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him, and there will be an adoption fee or donation of $150.
If you have room in your home and heart for Charlie, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email
