Charlotte came to SNAFU Rescue from a breeder release after her breeder was ready to retire her. She does have some saggy teets from her life as a commercial breeding dog but we are confident that with time, those will shrink up some. They have already started shrinking in the time we have had her in the rescue!
Medically, Charlotte seems to be in great shape! She has no current known health issues. She has been spayed, had a dental, had a small growth removed from her right front forearm, is heartworm negative and is UTD on all of her vaccinations/wormings.
Charlotte is a very sweet girl and has a very easy going personality! She is pretty low maintenance overall and really likes to be around other dogs! She is still learning to trust humans, but seems to like attention and is a very gentle girl. She will pancake down a bit when she is approached but is learning more and more each day that pets are a nice, enjoyable thing! She is learning to come and learning that being picked up means lots of snuggles and pets. She shows a little interest in kitties, but mainly just curiousness. Again, she is a very gentle girl so just nuzzles and seems to want to say hi! Since Charlotte is still learning to trust humans, we think that she would do best in a home with slightly older, dog savvy, respectful kids (4 years or older). She also seems to love all of the other dogs that she's met and gets along with her foster fur-siblings very well. Her favorite past times are rolling in the grass outside, playing with the other dogs and running and hopping around the yard.
Charlotte is not yet leashed trained so a home with a fenced yard is required at this time. At this point in time, she does not understand pottying on a leash and likes to have her privacy when going to the bathroom outside. She is also learning stairs and while she is doing very well learning, a home with fewer stairs will take preference over a home with multiple flights of stairs that she would need to go up and down daily.
She has been working on potty training since arriving at her foster home and has learned very quickly. As long as she is kept on a regular and consistent potty schedule, she seems to do great! She is also crate trained and will sleep in her kennel quietly while her foster family is away from home. At night, she sleeps in her kennel as that is where she seems to be most comfortable.
