Charlie is a 3 year old Tri Collie cross and is currently on foster in Pontypridd, South Wales.

Image

Charlie is a very special dog who is looking for an equally special home.
Charlie has hip dysplasia which affects his mobility. This is a very recent diagnosis and his foster carer is currently working on establishing the best pain relief and management for the condition.

Image

Charlie is a typical busy, happy collie cross despite his condition. His foster carer describes him as a big puppy; he even looks remarkably puppy like.

Charlie came in to Hope's care from the council pound and was in very poor condition. His coat has had to be clipped down leaving him looking young and fluffy.

Image

Charlie has a number of issues that his foster family are currently working on. He struggles to trust people and likes to keep his distance from unfamiliar people. He likes to keep his personal space all to himself around strangers and is very touch sensitive
.
Image

Charlie can also be defensive when other dogs invade his personal space. He is in foster care with another dog and is gradually being socialised and exposed to more dogs by his fosterer. This will need to be continued by his adoptive family.
Charlie is showing lots of improvement with these issues and much of it could be pain related due to his hips. Hopefully with correct pain relief and gradual desensitisation he will continue to come on in leaps and bounds.

Charlie is very playful and loving once he gets to know and trust you.

He can be rehomed as an only dog or with quiet, relaxed doggie companions.

Image

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Well a quick update from me about my week .....

I am loving the snow and my nose is down ploughing through it, something like "a husky pulling a sled" my mum said?
I also had my second Hydro session this week and my new friends there told my mum ' they had forgotten how handsome I was since last week ', that must be due to my mum as she is using this thing to push through my fur that I am really starting to like. I try and have a chew on it if she is not looking but she then tells me "no, itís a brush Charlie"
I also went into work with my mum and foster brother this week for the first time. I did a really good job of protecting my mum and her co-worker as i sat between their offices in the corridor and any murmur and I went to investigate. All was well though and I did not need to call on the assistance of my foster bro so he just slept under my mums desk
When we got home from "work" I was quite tired and needed a quick nap before my tea, so cwtched up (think thatís welsh for cuddle!) to my bro while my mum carried on "working" mumbling something like "my work is never done?" she managed to get a picture done though.....

Image

So once I had caught up on a little beauty sleep and had my tea, I decided to wind my foster brother up by cheating at a few games of tug of war, but then it was all a bit too much. This "work" thing had really gotten the better of me so i headed off for another nap , but this time hogging the whole sofa .................

Image

So a pretty busy week for me really and apparently I am getting "cheekier" everyday , not sure is thatís a good thing or not , but my foster nanny agrees to and she laughs really loud when she says it

I got a little bit upset this week though and growled, but my mum seems to think that she understands why. On a visit to my foster nanís a visitor arrived who I know and like a lot, but they came into the dark hallway with gloves and a hat on and my mum thinks that I could not see who they were. At first i did nothing but when they tried to walk passed me I got a bit scared and made a little noise. I did listen to my mum though and stopped straight away and once i knew who it was all I wanted to do was give them a kiss. Mum said it was time to go anyway and i said my goodbye and went home. I can just imagine what my mum is going to say now, she will complain about her "electric bill" as she will need to put the lights on for me all the time if its dark when people arrive he he he he he

Well thatís all for now, but I am available for any questions if there is someone out there that want to test my knowledge on human behaviour, as I am getting quite good at reading it now !!!

Love to you all , from Charlie XXXXXXXX

p.s. the only thing i haven't figured out yet is this "Christmas" thing........... any clues anyone

Charlie is still with us an is currently living in kennels and is desperate for a new home.

Charlie will be rehomed as a long term foster. This means Hope Rescue will remain responsible for all the costs associated with Charlie's care. There will be no adoption donation, any future veterinary costs, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments etc will all be covered by us and our team will always be available for support and advice.

Hiya
How does Charlie's condition affect his walks and exercise?
Does he potter round with the other dogs in kennels?

He is a little sweetie wub.gif

Charlie's condition means he can still exercise within reason as long as it is low impact and at a manageable level for him. When he first arrived he had severe muscle wastage which meant he was not fit or well enough to exercise very much. However, he has built muscle over time including hydro therapy sessions and is now able to exercise normally and go for long walks.

We do not have our own rescue kennels and we use private boarding kennels. Charlie is able to socialise with other dogs in kennels but not extensively. He has lived with another adult male collie in a foster home.

Charlie is still waiting for his special home sadly. He is "OK" in kennels, can't say he is having a whale of a time having been there for several months but he has a routine and is good with the kennel staff whom he trusts. Trust is a big thing for him. He has always been good with Ness, but equally she has seen how he can react around strangers. There is a special person out there for Charlie somewhere but its proving hard to find them.

If it weren't for my young children, I'd be pestering my husband for another dog. He looks almost identical to my Monty. wub.gif
