If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

24-03-22 Charlie originally came to us from Romania and has sadly been returned due to barking at some dogs when out on walks.  He is around the size of a Border Collie but slender in frame. Charlie would like a home where he can get at least one good run around each day and plenty at play time at home.  He is very easy to handle and has been a gentleman here but we do want him to have an experienced owner who will give him the life he needs as he can be fearful of new things.  Charlie would like another dog in his new home as he does get comfort from other dogs and is only reactive when on a lead through pure excitment.  In the right home and with so ongoing training Charlie will be a very faithful friend.  So if you have the right kind of home and can give Charlie the life he needs please put in an application form asap so he can be back in a home as soon as possible. Charlie needs a cat free home.

Today I got the pleasure of meeting this beautiful boy Charlie. It’s always difficult when a dog comes in from a home as they’ve known so much love and comfort and have now found themselves in a scary environment but Charlie is taking it all in his stride and getting as much cuddles and play time in as he possibly can.
He is SO handsome too! He knows how to sit, loves a walk and loves playing with other dogs. He is currently sharing his kennel with a corgi sized dog, another Romanian rescue female called Oren and they get on SO well!

Charlie is so ready for his forever home now!
He absolutely loves his people, he loves to play ball, he loves his kennel friend and puts up with all her sassiness, he loves walks, he's kennel clean, we are working with him with his fears and worries, but really he needs his own people to guide him through these things and stick with him no matter how long his journey takes.   Things I've learned about Charlie Chops since he has been back in kennels.

  •  He is super playful with people he has bonded with.
  • He is incredibly clever and obedient. Very easy to train and wants to do his best.
  • Loves tennis balls!!
  • Loves his dinner time and runs to the spot he eats in as soon as he sees his bowl.
  • He is such a cuddly little monkey!
  • Loves his walks.
  • Is very scared of thunder and loud bangs, will run to his bed if he hears one.
  • He never wants to do anything "wrong".
  • Loves a belly rub once he trusts you.
  • Is unbelievably stunning
  • Needs his people to understand him and not punish him for having emotions.
  • Is such a sensitive boy with the biggest heart.
  • He is 100% kennel clean.

So, they are just a few of the things I've learned about this beautiful boy, I hope someone else wants to see all these things first hand and that Charlie will find his forever home soon. He is wasted in kennels and it is too busy for him.

After 10 long months, Charlie has now moved to a foster home and is absolutley thriving! He is like a different dog out of the kennel environment and is so happy and content being back in a home. He is living with 5 other dogs at the moment and gets on great with them all, he is very respectful towards them and loves to play with them too!
Charlie is house clean, travels well in the car and is brilliant out on walks, he has suprised us so much with how wonderful he has been as we believed we were fostering a 'trickier' dog after being in kennels sooo long! Kennels did not show Charlie at his best, he presented as a reactive, stressed dog but completley relaxed after days in a home.
We would still like Charlie to be adopted by people who are confident with nervous dogs as he can get spooked and he would love a playful canine friend to live with to show him the ropes and keep him busy!
We can't wait for Charlie to settle once and for all in his happy ever after.

Charlie has been in a foster home for 2 months now, just as he approaches his ONE YEAR anniversary of being returned to the rescue. To say that Charlie has come on leaps and bounds would be an understandment.
Charlie is the absolute perfect house guest, he is clean, sleeps through the night perfectly, travels well and has found his favourite spot on the sofa where he likes to snooze upside down! As fosterers of a 'long stayer', we wanted to give Charlie ample opportunity to unwind, gain our trust and for his true personality to emerge so that we could work with any issues or quirks and give an accurate description of him. We have had plenty of time to do this and now know this boy inside out!
Charlie was initially nervous of meeting new dogs, it would take him some time to get used to them and he would be fearful of their intentions. On a walk, this would result in him barking at a distance, off lead in other situations he could have a grumble and not want to let his guard down. Since then, we have been working on introducing Charlie to lots of types of dogs and we are pleased to say that he now has many canine friends that he adores! Including his foster siblings who he looks up to so much and follows for guidance- and play time!!
We really cannot fault this boy, we would still like him to live with someone who is confident with nervy dogs as Charlie will no doubt be taken aback in a new setting initial and does get nervous with new people and places but comes around in no time! Please watch the video above to see just how wonderful Charlie is doing.
