#1844 Charlie Desi Dog

Medium-size, Male, Adult Shepherd x Labrador Retriever,
Charlie Desi Dog is up-to-date on his shots and has been neutered. He has special needs and is best in a home without small children. Charlie Desi Dog is currently being fostered in Falls Church, VA.

Meet Charlie! Charlie is an exceptional dog. He is smart, funny and athletic. You can't help but smile and chuckle when you see his whole body wriggle excitedly to see his foster's dogs. Also, he is the most incredibly bouncy dog when he is playing. Can you say Tigger?! Charlie is a ladies man! He prefers the company of a lady. He bonds with women so well. He is more accepting of men now. His foster is a man! This beautiful brindle boy is about 2 years old and weighs about 43 lbs, a nice medium size athletic dog.

Charlie is from India and is called a Desi Dog by the locals, which just means local "street" dog. The wonderful staff at KAW, a rescue center in India, found Charlie with a badly injured front leg that had to be amputated. Charlie is now fully healed and manages very well as a tripod, as you can see by clicking here!

Charlie really likes having a dog buddy around. He loves other dogs and is much more relaxed when there is a second dog in the home. He would also do well in a home with a fenced yard where he can truly cut loose and play. He is indifferent to cats but finds young children a bit overwhelming.

Charlie would do best with an experienced dog owner who can help him feel safe. Charlie knows all the basic commands and is crate trained and housebroken. A treasure of a dog, that is our Charlie!

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
