Charlie is a senior pup looking for a retirement home to finish out his years. He is a fairly active dog; jumping into the car for a ride, hopping up on your lap for some cuddles and of course exploring everything with his nose. He is a great guard dog and barks at the door. After he’s comfortable he just wants to nap in the sun and gaze out the window while you pet him. If he spies a cat he will bark at it to let you know it doesn’t belong. He would love to find a mellow house for him to relax and be able to love on his humans. He does have arthritis that requires daily medication. His ideal home would be where he is the only animal and spoiled rotten with cuddles and treats.
Lindsey R is his foster parent. The adoption fee for Charlie is $200, please complete our online application formspeak to a volunteer if you are interested in adopting Charlie. A volunteer will contact you.
All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
