SPECIAL COVID NOTICE: We realize that many of you are home from work right now and adopting a dog seems like a great idea. Which, it may be! Or may not. Please think about what your life will be like once things go back to “normal.” Will you have enough time each day to dedicate to a dog, based on the dog’s individual needs? If you are looking for a dog to socialize with kids, other dogs, etc., please do not submit an adoption application, as we do not recommend that for any dog. Nor do we recommend dog parks or dog daycare. Visit the resources section of our website for more info on those topics.
Please note that none of our foster homes have children, so we have no idea how any of our dogs would do living in a home with kids and/or if they would enjoy it. None of our foster homes have cats either, so if you have a cat and are looking to adopt a dog, we can send you info for slow introductions which will require separating a dog from your cat for some time.
As for Charles:
Charles is just a hunk, a hunk of burning love! This big guy, approx. 5 years old and 75 lbs, has quickly stolen the hearts of his foster parents and everyone who meets him. Aside from being a real looker, Charles also knows how to turn on the charm. In fact, he sometimes gets to go to work with his foster mom and is a very well-behaved, happy office guest.
Charles is well-behaved and snuggly but also enjoys being active as well, as he is a generally athletic, outgoing, fun guy! He loves going for walks and long hikes, but with his size, needs an able-bodied handler. In the yard, he enjoys romping and exploring along with a good game of fetch.
Charles is housebroken however he can not be crated. His foster parents give him run of the house and he does just fine. Charles loves getting treats in his Kong, however he sometimes loves them a bit too much and will resource guard. The good news is that he is very food motivated and has picked up on commands quickly. Another fun fact: he’s a very good boy at the vet!
Please note that the first step in our process is the adoption application found on our website www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org. Charles is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
