Charlie's Story

Sweet, adorable and covered in the softest fluffy white fur ever- that‘s Charlie!  You won’t find a much sweeter little man than Charlie!  He loves his human friends and is so happy to be right by their side!  Charlie spent some time in a foster home and his foster mom reports that his is the cuddliest guy and loves to curl up with you and take a nice nap!  While he may be a bit of a coach potato, his foster also reported that he is always up for a walk! His foster mom described him as being small but mighty!  Charlie adores affection from his human friends and he will take all the petting you are willing to give!  Once you start with head scratches and petting, Charlie will snuggle up to you and look for more!  He never gets tired of love from his human friends!  And if you do stop, he gives you a gentle nudge to let you know he’ll take more!

Charlie is looking for a home with an experienced owner and without children.  Charlie’s back legs are paralyzed and he needs to use a wheelchair for walks outside and rough surfaces.  Charlie doesn’t let this slow him down one bit!  This sweet boy loves his walks and he is always ready to go go go! His ears fly out to the side like tiny wings when he walks!  It is really adorable!  He does need an owner who will learn to use his wheel chair and who is home a lot and can provide him with all the love and affection he deserves.  Charlie needs an owner who can ensure that he has a safe and quiet environment.  Once he is comfortable with his new surroundings, this sweet boy blossoms into a vibrant fellow who has tons of pep in his step!  He is a lovable and sweet little man who will bring so much love to the right family.  Ready to welcome little Charlie into your home?  Stop by the Lincoln Park Adoption Center and meet him today!
