CHARLIE IS VERY MUCH A WORK IN PROGRESS AND NEEDS TIME AND LOTS OF LOVE TO MATURE INTO THE SPECIAL MAN HE WAS ALWAYS MENT TTO BE
Charlie is a 7 year old cavalier described by his foster mum as a special boy who needs a special family to help him become the dog he was always meant to be. He loves to cuddle on the sofa next to her with his head on her leg, but shies away if you touch more than his chest or head. He currently doesn’t like being touched all over but this is being worked on. He will sniff and take food from a hand but very gingerly. He loves to snore and does so often when having a power nap.
When his foster family have been out and about, he is excited to greet them at the door when they return but from a distance, he gets excited with the other dogs and wants to be breve but just doesn’t have the confidence yet to take that extra step. He doesn’t currently like being picked up and will run away if you try. He has probably been grabbed so many times in the past that he is worried what human hands are going to do this time. He hasn’t the confidence to interact with humans yet but you can tell by his face that he’s desperate to try. He really does rely on his foster fur family to show him how to dog.
He doesn’t know how to walk on a lead yet but this is being worked on. It’s very much gently, gently with our special boy. He has a lovely temperament and is a joy in the house, watching what goes on around him or sleeping and snoring.
Charlie is like a little old man, he is inquisitive from afar, and watches everything but not quite brave enough to interact, he is a gentle soul and although he is scared and shivers when touched, is never aggressive, just flinched away.
He has no experience with children so if there are children in the house, we would recommend older dog savvy children
He is not cat or small furry tested
Toilet training is a work in progress if the door is open he will go to toilet outside but if the door is closed he gets worried and may have an accident. He just needs to be taken out often with the other dogs and given lots of praise when he has been good.
He can climb stairs but likes to sleep on the sofa downstairs on his own. He is a quiet dog and only barks when he thinks it’s time to get up or if Poppy his foster sister is barking to greet people.
Charlie needs a loving, patient family with a resident sensible dog of a similar size who can show him the way of the world. He is getting braver every day and the changes in him already are amazing but he still has a way to go. He needs owners who have the patience to let him blossom in his own time.
