My name is Cuddly, Charismatic and Carefree Charlie — and I’m a bichon sweetheart of 16 pounds with love in my heart for everyone. I’m an adorable guy who is a cuddler and a lover, great with other dogs, good natured and simply wonderful with people. My foster mom says I’m very sweet boy, playful, spunky and adventurous (you can ask Mom about that) — and there is no doubt that I am VERY smart! I figure things out really fast and really want to please!
Dad says I like to be wherever he or Mom is. He calls me Super Glue because I bond to people in seconds. There is no doubt that I’m the world’s greatest lap dog – until you get ready for a walk. I love my walks! I’m happy to trot along and see the world. I’m also a great rider (in the car, that is!).
I love the yard (where I can hang out and play with my doggy foster sisters) and to explore the world. I tell Mom that exploring is understandable because I love the outdoors! She calls me Curious George. (Silly Mom. I tell her my name is really Charlie)
Because I’m smart I mastered the doggy door in minutes (making Mom and Dad very proud of me!) I mastered being housebroken. And I also mastered this game called ‘Fetch.’ I’m also great at playing ‘Chase’ and I like being chased as well too. Another way that I show how smart I am is I cock my head when you talk and listen very, very intently! I don’t want to miss a word when someone is talking to me!
Dad says I’m always wagging my tail to show that I’m happy – plus I’m loyal and friendly! I’m grateful to have a foster family who loves and appreciates me and I show them that I love and appreciate them too.
Mom says I do everything well but there is one thing I do exceptionally well: I am the perfect companion! There is no doubt that I’m always ready for kisses and cuddles and would be the perfect family dog.
My Ideal Home:
- Someone who is home most of the time
- Another active, playful dog is a must!
- Another dog to show me the ropes
- A family with kids is fine
- Have had dogs as an adult
- An adopter with recent/current dog experience
- Rescue dog experience a plus
I’m just a happy, fun-loving, energetic and sweet little guy who loves to cuddle, play and has a great big loving heart. If I sound like the kind of furkid that you are looking for, please fill out an application at as I am waiting to meet you.
