Charleston, also known as Charlie, was surrendered to RAGOM when his first family decided they just didn’t have enough time to spend with this sweet boy. Charlie found a great new home and is truly loved, but he will need to find a new family to call his own. It seems Charlie has one small, workable issue … he likes to bark.
Charlie is an energetic 18-month-old Goldendoodle. He has lots of puppy energy and it takes lots of exercise and playtime to keep his body and mind in shape. When Charlie is bored, he often finds things to keep himself entertained, such as socks, pens, and other assorted human items. Charlie loves to be with his humans, whether it is going for a walk or lounging on the couch. He loves his walks and can easily walk several miles without ever getting tired. Charlie has passed 2 levels of puppy training; when he is motivated by treats, he can perform a lot of commands such as "sit," "stay," "down," "shake," and "wait." The last one is a crowd pleaser. Place a treat on Charlie’s paw and give him the "wait" command and it is amazing how long he can hold it. His trainer was very impressed and felt that he has lots of potential. With ongoing training, he will grow into a very well-mannered young man and who knows what else he could learn. Charlie is a big boy, weighing in at 70 pounds. I don’t think he knows how big he is. Charlie is neutered, up-to-date on his shots, heartworm negative, and house-trained. He is kept in his kennel when the family is away for the day, but otherwise has free roam of the house.
Charlie will need a new family dedicated to giving him the exercise he needs and working with his barking. Because Charlie has so much energy to burn, it would be best if he has a fenced-in yard. If he is left on a tie-out, he will bark continuously. Charlie is great with other dogs, so he would really enjoy having another dog in the house to play with and it would help keep him busy, too. Because Charlie is a big boy and his energy level is similar to a young puppy, he should go to a home with older children or young children who don’t mind getting knocked over when he plays hard.
