This handsome boy with the great smile is Charlie, a 1 year-old Border Collie/Bernese Mountain Dog mix or at least that’s our best guess as he came into a rural county dog shelter as a stray. For a young dog, this boy has such a calm, gentle demeanor. We’ve found him to be very friendly and affectionate with people and also excellent with other dogs. Charlie has impeccable crate manners so may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. His beautiful long coat is going to require regular grooming to keep him looking and feeling his best so his new family should factor that into their canine budget. Charlie walks quite nicely on a leash and is going to enjoy lots of hikes, walks, and jogs with his new family. Charlie weighs about 60 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Charlie. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
