Adoption status
Approx December 2014

Unlike his namesake, our boy is the sweetest.  And I would have to say he is probably the dog who wants a new human more than any other dog we have.  That’s what happens when you get adopted out as a puppy and then returned as an adult.  And by no fault of his own, that’s what happened to the Chuckster.

Chuckie’s mama was brought into the rural country shelter here in Assumption Parish.  Pregnant and terrified, she stood no chance at getting rescued so we took her in and she had her puppies under our care. Chuckie became one of those pups and eventually got adopted out as a happy-go-lucky youngster.

Then we got the call that ever rescue dreads….they had to return Chuckie.  Due to a divorce (whatever), neither husband nor wife wanted to keep him. So back he came and the only space we had was within our kennels. Poor Chuckie was/is completely traumatized.  He went from having a quiet home, sleeping on the couch to now, barking dogs all around him and sleeping in an outdoor kennel.

But recently I (Tia Torres) have moved Chuckie into my house. OH MY DOG!  What a cuddle bunny he is!!!  He is so well-behaved in his crate and curls up on his blankets.  He enjoys going for walks and he is SO good on leash.  He is extremely affectionate.  I cannot say enough great things about him.

So here is the ultimate home for Chuckie.  He is polite around other dogs but doesn’t really care if he’s around them.  So he might be okay around an older, calmer dog such as himself.  As for cats, I would have to cat-test him but don’t be surprised if he chases them. Hounds normally have some pretty decent prey drive due to their inherent hunting genetics but we are willing to try due to his older and calmer demeanor.  As for kids, Chuckie needs a quiet life so I would rather him be in an adult home but don’t me wrong…he loves them!  The main thing for Chuckie is that he needs someone who is old most of the time because he craves that constant attention.

So…does anyone have a Grandma or Grandpa that needs a friend for life?

Adopt this Dog!
