Charles's Story

Are you an introvert who enjoys alone time and keeping to yourself?  Do you love chilling out on the couch and enjoying a nice night relaxing in front of the television?  If you answered yes to both of these questions, then we have a dog who would be the perfect companion for you!  Charles is an adorable little couch potato who loves nap time and relaxing to the max!  He was relinquished by his owners to Chicago Animal Care and Control and rescued by PAWS so that he could have a chance to find the perfect home for him.  To Charles, his would include a comfy bed he could lay in whenever he pleases, tons of toys he could play with, and a loving owner who will give him all the love he deserves!  Charles is a bit slow to warm up to strangers and can be apprehensive of overhandling, so he would do best with someone who can give him the space and time he needs to warm up and learn to trust his humans.  He is a handsome boy who enjoys the simple things in life such as going for scenic walks, and watching the world go by through the window, and enjoying a nice bowl full of kibble for dinner! 

Charles is looking for a quiet, adults-only home where he can enjoy his days to the fullest and where he’s guaranteed to have tons of time for some much-needed rest and relaxation!  Charles loves alone time with his humans so much and wants to spend as much one on one time with them as he can, so he hopes he can find a home where there aren’t too many people coming and going.  He also is super passionate about his food and toys, so he would do best as the only pet in the home so that he doesn’t have to share them.  Charles is such a charming little boy who will make your heart melt as soon as you lay your eyes on his loving face and warm eyes!  He is an old soul who hopes to find someone whose personality perfectly matches his and someone who will accept him and all of his quirks!  If you feel you can provide the perfect forever home he’s always dreamed of having, then you have to come in and meet Charles!
