Oh so handsome, Charlie!

Charlie is our 2 year old, male Shih-Tzu, Terrier mix who was rescued and brought to Ensenada shelter after sheer neglect. His foster mama is grooming him into the best boy ever with love, patience and positive reinforcement. He is already great with harness and leash, and is learning going to the bathroom and living in a house, the right way. His mama gave him a buzzed hairdo and he looks super handsome! He has been scheduled to be fixed soon.

Charlie is the perfect duckling to swan story hero. A lot of TLC is helping him put on weight with balanced diet and the groomer has helped him with skin issues. Inspite of the past, Charlie is full of love! He loves interacting with other dogs and playing with them and learning from them! Cats dont bother him much, and he does better with older kids who can respect a pup’s boundaries. Charlie is quite vocal and ‘talks’ if certain area of his skin feel sensitive while being petted. He has some trust issues from the past and takes a bit of time to warm up to men. Charlie snoozes comfortably in his crate and turning into such a great house dog already! All he needs is love and the feeling that he belongs!

Charlie will do best at a home with company, most of the day, and who can provide him with TLC to teach him. A dog buddy will be great for him! His adoption fee is $350 and that includes neutering, shots and microchip. If you want to take him home, please fill out the form on the website here https://www.theanimalpad. org/adopt-today
