Remember that little fellow named Charlie and his 10-day jaunt? His story had a happy ending thanks to a number of people coming together to bring him home. Folks have emailed asking if Charlie had stayed put or taken off on another world tour.
The answer is that Charlie has made the perfect housemate for his adoptive mom, Wendy. He’s perfectly housebroken, has his own collar with contact information, takes afternoon strolls with Wendy on a leash, feels right at home riding in a car and even met her folks in Louisiana. He not only made a great impression with the family, Wendy discovered that he really gets along with other dogs.
Recently a meeting took place for Charlie and Wendy with dog rescue expert Pat Rodriguez, who helped coordinate the rescue of Charlie. As the humans recalled the days of searching for the three-year old Dallas Animal Services graduate, the sensitive little pooch immediately sidled up to Pat. What amazed the rescuers was that somehow Charlie had survived the dangers of the area woods and major streets during his 10-day travels.
Wendy recalled how when she decided to get a dog, she spotted Charlie at the Dallas Animal Service’s PetSmart location on Coit Road. While the other dogs played in a crowd, Charlie sat to the side looking as he wondered what was going on and why was he there. She knew on the spot she wanted him.
If you’re looking for a pooch or a kitty, consider adoption from Dallas Animal Services, the SPCA of Texas or one of the countless rescue groups. There are hundreds of Charlies out there that would love to adopt you.
