It's all about the dogs
Guardian Angel Basset Rescue
Serving Illinois, Indiana and the St. Louis, Mo. area
Charlie is a handsome, energetic, 6-year-old boy with lots of love to give. He
loves attention, going on walks, and baying at passersbys through the front
window. After walks, he’s content to curl up with you while you watch TV or
read a book, or hang out with you in the kitchen while you cook. He just
wants to hang out wherever the humans of the house happen to be.
He’s house trained, crate trained, and leash trained. He knows his name and
will come as soon as you call him. He is learning to adjust to new rules in his
foster home, but he’s going to need continued reinforcement on boundaries
in his new home. Without them, he’ll easily attempt to take over the house
and make it his own . He is showing signs that he’s trainable, it will just take
time, understanding, and willingness.
Charlie is probably best-suited for a home where he’ll be a solo dog. He can
get along with other dogs, but likes to be dominant and will easily bully them
when they let him. Play time can easily turn into a scuffle if left unsupervised.
He’s been around children his whole life and seems to like them, but it may
be best that any who will be around him a lot would be at least school age.
Please fill out an application and ask about Charlie. He is ready for his
forever home and would be a wonderful companion for anyone lucky enough
to adopt him.
