Charlie is a very sweet, affectionate and playful white Toy Poodle, just a little over six pounds. Charlie was abandoned in a county stray shelter, and then rescued out of the shelter by K-9 PALS.

We don’t know why anyone would want to give him up because he such a sweet lovable little boy. Charlie loves to curl up on a lap or next to you, and loves being held and petted. He loves taking walks, and he also loves car rides. He is housetrained and has very nice house manners. He really likes to be around other dogs but would be great as a single dog in the home because the company of people is what he loves most of all. According to the shelter’s records Charlie is about 10 years old, although no one would guess that because he is very spy and alert. Charlie is neutered and current on all his vaccinations. For information about Charlie, call or email to 805-570-0415 or
