[ADOPTED] Charlie – 5 Year Old Irish Setter/Golden Retriever

[No Longer Accepting Applications] Charlie is a sweet, affectionate boy who wants nothing more than to be loved.

He is a 5 year old Golden Retriever/Irish Setter mix who was rescued from the shelter with his best mate, Aspen. 

Charlie is a wonderfully social, outgoing guy who loves affection and wants nothing more than to climb in your lap and be loved on. 

It’s clear that Charlie hasn’t spent much, if any time indoors, and no one ever taught him traditional house manners. He is living with his trainer now, where he’s learning important skills like staying off of kitchen counters, and keeping four feet on the floor when guests come over. 

Charlie loves people, and has never met a stranger. Because of his history, at times, he startles easily with quick movement, assuming he’s going to be struck, and while he is a happy go-lucky guy, he needs a family who will only use positive, trust and relationship building training methods, and who won’t punish or scold him as he’s quite sensitive and will cower and hide. 

Charlie is a dream on the leash, loves people, can be shy with other dogs initially (he runs and hides) but would warm up quickly to an easy going, mellow friend. We’d like him to go to a quiet home with someone who will make him the center of their universe.

He is active, and fun, and would love to hit the trails with you, or join you on any adventures you have planned. He’d be an excellent camping companion. 

Charlie needs a home with a very securely fenced yard as, in his past life, he made it a habit of pushing through a hole in the fence in order to visit the neighbors for food.  

He is housebroken, he does not chew and is not destructive, and he is comfortable in a crate. He’d prefer a home with no cats.

Charlie is currently undergoing training to learn basic manners, and to learn to be more confident with his canine buddies.

Charlie and Aspen can be adopted together or separately. While they get along great, we think they’d do best in separate homes so they can learn more independence.

Charlie is being fostered in Port Angeles, WA.

Note: At Rise Rescue Alliance, we do not advise taking any of our dogs to dog parks for exercise. 

Adoption Fee: $550
