Charlie is a 13 month old Golden mix. Charlie was surrendered by a good samaritan who has been keeping an eye on him since he was born a year ago. Thanks so much to Denise and Joyce for their wonderful care of Charlie and their generous donation to RAGOM for his future vet bills! So very thoughtful of you both! Thanks to fellow foster Gretchen and her family for keeping Charlie overnight too!
This sweet boy came into RAGOM because he has some bad hips and maybe a bad knee too. Poor guy is in pain and has difficulty bearing weight on his back left leg. We have been in touch with our ortho surgeon who is recommending weight loss before determining the need for surgery. We are working on that already and Charlie seems not to mind the green bean diet! He is getting some anti-inflammatory meds for the pain and they help a lot.
Charlie is current on vaccinations and is neutered. He had an accident in the house but has since learned outdoors is a better place for that business. We chock it up to not knowing how to communicate with each other about those needs!
Charlie is still a youngster and after two days of free roam with the rest of the pack, he got bored and chewed up some items. So he earned himself a crate while we are at work. He gets a break when the dog walkers come and he goes into his crate easily when you throw a treat in. There are 4 other dogs in the house at the moment and Charlie met them all with perfect doggie etiquette! Even the crabby old girl Scout who snarks at every new foster. Not a mean bone in this boy's body! Charlie will go to the vet tomorrow for X-rays of his knees and the usual wellness exam. He has a bit of a road ahead of him but you must come meet him in person! He will be at the Chuck and Don's event this Saturday with foster brother Henri 12-347.
