Please welcome Miss Charlotte into RAGOM! She came all the way from Turkey and is excited to start her new life in America. Earlier this year in Turkey Charlotte was hit by a car and she then spent the last few months in a vet office recovering before making her trip across the ocean. She is about a year and half old, spayed and up to date on her shots. She went to the vet and does have a double ear infection that she is currently taking meds for. Other than that she is in perfect health and is a great size at about 45 pounds.
Charlotte is a very playful young girl and is having a lot of fun with our 3 and 1 year old male resident goldens. She immediately liked our 3 year old but did take a couple of days to settle in and get comfortable before she really warmed up to our very rambunctious, in-your-face, 1 year old. Now they are best friends and spend most of their time playing bitey-face and chasing each other around the house and yard. Charlotte also loves people and loves to be petted. She thinks she is a lap dog and luckily with her smaller size it works pretty well. She very quickly adjusted to the luxuries of her new life, in between playing she can be found napping on the nearest couch or bed.
Charlotte does fine crated for a full work day but we do come home at lunch to let her out. She is also crated at night and sleeps all night without a peep. Charlotte is not potty-trained as she doesn’t let us know yet when she needs to go out, but she has not had any accidents and we just take her out every 1-2 hours when we are home and she will do her business.
Like most of the Turkey dogs Charlotte does exhibit some resource guarding of food and toys from other dogs. She loves to play with toys and will sometimes play tug of war with our dogs but other times when our younger dog will try to take toys from her she appropriately tells him that she’s not sharing. We feed her in her crate which she is fine with. We haven’t seen any resource guarding from people though. Charlotte needs either a secure fence or a tie out as she will try to run if given the chance and she has a very high prey drive.
