Meet Charlie


Lovely Charlie is a marvelous, intelligent, loving dog who’s looking for a new start in life. He was rescued from another shelter by a very kind adopter and then surrendered to Rescue Ranch when their life situation unexpectedly changed. Charlie has been with us for several months now, waiting for someone to give him the loving home he deserves.

At just one year old, Charlie is still a puppy at heart. He very much wants to please, but his exuberance still occasionally gets the better of him. As is typical for the herding breeds, he can be a bit mouthy when he’s excited. He doesn’t mean any harm, but he needs to learn to be gentle. As such, we recommend him to homes with older children who will not be overwhelmed by his puppy energy. He will need a large yard to play in and plenty of daily exercise. He would absolutely adore to run around on a ranch. So if you’re looking for a farm dog, look no further!

Charlie has had some training and walks well on leash, though he needs to be reminded not to pull. He knows how to “Sit”, and, since he’s very happy to work for treats, we know he’ll learn the finer points quickly. He rides beautifully in the car and would make an excellent travel companion. He socializes well with other active dogs and might be happy in a multi-dog household. However, we don’t know his history with cats.

If Charlie melts your heart, come on down to the Ranch to meet this special dog today!
