Meet Charlie

Charlie is a very gentle 4 year old Border Collie with a 10% unknown cross. He lived with a family on a rural property where he loved the life there. The family moved to the city and while Charlie has adapted well he would love to find a new home, hopefully somewhere where he can run around freely as Border Collies love to do. He loves to chase rabbits and lizards and is constantly looking for something new to do. He is well trained and if someone wants to put in the time, he could benefit from more training as he is a dog who would like a job to do whether it be working or playing. He loves children and has never shown anything other than kindness to everyone, he seems to love people more than dogs as when he is taken to the dog park, he wants to get up close to the dog owners to receive their pats and cuddles.

Charlie would be best suited to someone who is home most of the day as this is what he has become used to and he gets great re-assurance from knowing someone who loves him is nearby. He is very lovable and patient with children. He loves to be inside the house but will wait patiently at the door to be invited in. He is very sociable and gets on well with other dogs and has mixed and played well with other dogs in the house with the foster carer.

Charlie is being cared for in the Hornsby area.

Charlie was adopted on 17 September 2012 after 3 weeks in foster care
