Hi, I'm Charlie Bear
Border Collie Mix | Adult | Male | Large
My name is Charlie Bear and I am a full-on LOVE BUG with my special
someone! I am an older gentleman who loves to snuggle and relax with a
trusted person. My life was a bit rough previously, so I tend to be
very shy and nervous when I meet new people. But if you give me a few
days, I’ll warm up to you and become your very own furry shadow! I am
a sweet boy who barks only occasionally and wants nothing more than a
quiet, loving home.
After a few days together, I became my foster mom’s shadow and
snuggle-bug on the couch. Whether she sits on the floor or the couch,
I immediately curl up next to her. When she is working at her desk, I
nap on the floor right next to her. When she gets up to walk around, I
follow her and keep a close eye on her. We enjoy walks around the
backyard to stretch our legs and enjoy the outside smells!
I am more nervous with men than women although I’ll warm up to anyone
who’s patient and waits for me to get comfortable. But because I’m
shy, it’s best that I’m not around kids since they can be so
I love to sleep and snuggle, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be active
sometimes. We go for walks around the neighborhood and I love to smell
EVERYTHING! I also enjoy soft squeaky toys (sometimes just to carry
around and sometimes to chew on). Recently, I’ve even begun playing
with my foster doggy brother! We chase each other or a soccer ball and
we have even started to play-wrestle outside!
In short, I am a shy-but-loving dog looking for a wonderful home with
an easy-going owner or two! Can you imagine me as your cuddle-buddy? I
