Why choose me?

Update 8/11: Charity is beyond urgent at this point. The shelter has stayed full this summer, more so than usual, and, while not the longest-term resident ever (that title is held by Biz, for those who remember him!), she is the longest-term pup at a very bad time. It is getting hard to justify holding her at a time when other dogs, not at the shelter as long, are euthanized for space. Having that happen to Charity would break all of our hearts, and mean she never had a chance to know what it is to be someone’s BFF. Charity is a happy pup, as long as she’s in an interaction pen or hanging out with a person. She self-entertains wonderfully, but is also THRILLED at any TLC she gets. She prefers dogs that aren’t too pushy with her immediately, and seems to have a preference for female dogs more generally. She previously lived with a cat (though she does chase cats, she seems to think they’re little furry playmates, not prey) and a child, so she seems quite adaptable to whatever home composition she might have. If you’re looking for a great companion, please consider Charity!

Update 7/14: Charity had such a blast today at the community event! She adored all the attention she got, and wishes someone would give her a shot! She’s been at animal control now for almost 4 months… Because she’s considered a senior, she just keeps getting looked over… She loves to play with toys, getting pets, giving kisses, and being a silly-butt…

Charity has been one of our “Go-To” dogs for events in the community. She loves attention from adults and kids and has been good with the other dogs at the events. She loves to play but also likes to chill. She’s a sweetheart who’s still waiting for her special person or family to find her.

Update 7/2: Charity has completed her month of kennel rest and is available for adoption as well as rescue. She is one happy girl! Of course she’d be even happier in a new home!

Update 6/1: Charity received her Diroban (heartworm treatment) shots Wednesday and yesterday and is now in her “crate rest” period. Wish her well as she recovers!

Update 4/4: Charity may be seven years old, but that doesn’t keep her from playing with toys or running along the fence–at least for a short time. She especially likes stuffed toys and learned that if she brought the toy back to me she could get a treat. First, she had to make sure she shook it and made it squeak. Charity can be choosy about her playmates at the fence. She seems to do better with males or non-alpha females. Today, her running buddy was sweet Libby. Afterwards, Charity was ready to join me at the bench to relax and be loved on. I like spending time with Charity, and she appreciates having a friend.

Update 3/27: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, Charity¬†has been spayed and brought up-to-date on her basic vaccinations! She’s now available for adoption as well as rescue!

Charity had just been surrendered, but that didn’t keep her from wanting to meet new friends. She was happy to walk with me to an interaction pen. Once she had checked out all the new scents, she joined me at the bench and liked being petted and having her back scratched. She’s a sweet, older dog who enjoys being with people. Her former owners said Charity lived with a small dog and cats and was good with kids. Unfortunately, she has tested positive for heartworms, so she’s only available to rescues until she is spayed. If you’re looking for an older dog who enjoys leisurely walks and being with friends, come meet Charity!
