Charlie is something of a conundrum when trying to assess his age, he has lovely clean teeth and loads of energy which would put him at about 4 years old but he also had cloudy eyes and some weakness in his back legs, which would make him much older. A vet has put him at 6 years old, other people have said more like 8 years. We have put him on some joint aid and glucosamine which will help with his walking.
Charlie loves to snuggle up to a human on the sofa and will sigh and snore happily, he likes to watch tv, he loves his walks and has been brilliant with people we have met on our walks and in the home. He has been friendly with every dog we have met and gets on well with the resident female lurcher. We haven’t seen any cats yet, so we are not sure what his opinion of them is.
He can be a food thief and will try to steal our resident dog’s food, if he thinks you have food in your hand, watch out. For this reason we are saying no to younger children as he could nip if he thought there was something tasty in their hands.
Charlie has been left for 3 hours without any incidents, he is clean in the house and will let you know when he needs to go out for the toilet.
Charlie has just arrived with us, he is a very happy, sweet boy who has a very waggy tail. He loves a fuss and enjoys pottering around the garden, he likes the sofa and loves his food. We will put up more information as we get to know him better.
