Charlotte

It's official. Sweet Charlotte was adopted by her fosters. She has come a long way. She runs around the yard in happiness with her tail wagging. She loves her pal, Bentley, the senior Cocker in the family.

From her family:

I can't imagine what she's been through. She has started to wag her tail when I'm around and actually tries to play a little! She loves Ninja, our young rescue cat who adores dogs. It seems it was fate that she ended up here! We are lucky to have her!

*ADOPTION PENDING*

Charlotte was one of the dogs rescued from the South Korean meat market by Humane Society International. Although she has little, if any, Pyr in her, she is white and fluffy.

When she first arrived, she had never been in a proper home, but, she's grown in the last couple of months and is slowly adjusting. She's my little shadow which is typical of an insecure dog in a whole new environment.

She adores our 10-year old cocker spaniel, and gets along great with our cats. We think that she wishes our old Spaniel wanted to play more! She is adapting to living in a home, but is still quite fearful of strangers, especially men.

We believe that she is part Samoyed, and is just over a year old.

She's fairly small at around 40lbs. Although this doesn't seem like a big accomplishment, it is for Charlotte. She now wags her tail and eats out of a bowl!

She is not yet ready for leash walks. She has started to sleep at the end of her people's bed. She barks randomly but only outside. She does need a crate as that is her safety zone.

Charlotte will need a knowledgeable owner with lots of patience, but we know that this patience will pay off. She wants to trust people, and she will get there but when, for the majority of her young life, she has had no one to trust, it’s difficult for her.

And, positive reinforcement education is the only acceptable form of training for her or any dog.

We do feel she should not go to a home with young children due to her fearfulness. Another dog would be helpful to aid in her continuing to becoming a family pet. She does need a quiet household.

Ideally, whoever is interested in this girl would need to meet her regularly until she becomes used to that family so integration into a new household will be almost seamless.
