Charlie came to us from a local shelter. Charlie is an affectionate Shih Tzu mix who loves toys almost as much as he loves his people. He can entertain himself for quite a while, burying his toys under blankets and pillows, walking around with a toy in his mouth, or lying on his back holding a toy with his paws. He also loves cuddle, lap, and play time with his people and will gaze adoringly into their eyes. He enjoys meeting new people (especially if a treat is involved!), but he will stay at a respectful distance and approach them on his own time.


Charlie is a sturdy boy who weighs around 16 pounds. He is being fostered with other dogs and gets along fine with them, but occasionally he will have a minor disagreement over a toy. For that reason, we prefer that he go to a home without other dogs. Charlie does not like walking on a leash, so we are requiring a home with a fenced yard. He will go on indoor pee pads if necessary. Charlie doesn’t like being left alone too long so we prefer a foster home with someone home part of the day. No crates please.
