Hi, I'm Charlie Bear. I’m adopted!
Labrador Retriever Border Collie | Adult | Male | Large
Charlie Bear was adopted June 2021!
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 younger kids since they can be so unpredictable!
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 sure can!
