MEET CHARLOTTE….a 16 month old, 13 lb, white/gold Shih Tuz-Maltese mix
who was rescued from the Orange County Shelter a year ago as a puppy.  Unfortunately, her mom has to reluctantly give her up for personal issues and wanted to make sure she went to a rescue who would see to it that Char never is never homeless again.  This little lady has had a bubbly and playful personality since day one and had no transition problems whatsoever — because she is a puppy thru and thru and has the playfulness to prove it!   She gets along well with other dogs and is super friendly.  Her best friend was a 3 year-old Wheaten terrier, five times her size!  She loves playing tug of war, wrestling and cuddling for some afternoon naps. It’s clear that Charlotte absolutely needs another canine in her life!!  She also loves to fetch indoors/outdoors with her many toys or tennis balls. She is a cuddlebug and a kisser with her human, especially in bed to end her day.  Char does well at dog parks, with dogs her size, but can be a bit intimidated by strange dogs who are significantly larger than her.  That being said, it doesn’t take her long before becoming fast friends!  Like most puppies, you have to guard your sandals and other belongings when you leave the house, or she might take over!  Charlotte is a very healthy puppy who loves outings and walks.  She would do best in a family where her humans work from home or are not gone long hours.  But another dog to keep her company and play with her is a must.  She is dog door trained and does well, but we don’t guarantee!!  Charlotte will be available after June 10.  Does she sound like a baby you could love?  Kids over 8 yrs old welcomed.

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
