The poor lad was underweight, run down, had poor skin and ear infections.
He really did give the impression he was going to give up on life and he didn’t want to interact with anyone or anything.
The kennels seemed to be the last straw for this boy who spent his days cowering in his bed, not daring to move due to the noise of the other dogs.
Thankfully one of our fosterers came to the rescue and offered Charlie a place at her home with his own quiet kennel and time inside the house.
What a godsend this was, within days he had started to make friends and, although still extremely nervous of new people, was really starting to find his feet.
Ear infection under control and no more pain, he was starting to enjoy life again.
Now mixing with 6 other dogs, ducks, chickens and a cat it is safe to say that Charlie Boy has turned out to be a very well tempered boy whose only request is a safe forever home with someone who will understand his nervousness and give him the opportunity to enjoy the rest of his life.
At only 2 years of age he has plenty of ball chasing days to get through!
