Behavioral Concerns/Observations:

  • It is very possible he will develop resource guarding with his adopters like he has with his current foster. This is something that any adopter and their family will need to be aware of being a potential behavioral issue in the future.

 

Medical Concerns/Observations:

  • Charlie has something called "overflow incontinence". This means that if Charlie is ALLOWED to gulpgulpgulpgulp his water without it being semi monitored or in an area that you can close off, that he will NOT feel full and he will end up letting loose his bladder. All this means for him is measuring out certain amounts of water multiple times a day (25-30 cups daily) OR just having the water bowl in the bathroom, laundry room, etc., to be able to close the water off for a period of time. All that I have changed in his lifestyle so far is leaving the 5 gallon water dish in my bathroom so I can close the door when I want to limit his water intake. 
    Since doing so, Charlie has not has one single accident, dribble or drop in the past couple weeks! He does not leak or pee in his kennel at all. 
    Basically, all you need to do is take Charlie out regularly, and semi monitor his water intake. No need for ANY medications and he passed his water deprivation test last week! His urine is completely normal and so is he! 

 

 

*Charlie came into the rescue with the name Casper when he was a young puppy. He was returned by the adopter due to his medical developments, who had changed his name to Charlie (which he seems to respond well to).*

 

Meet Charlie

Hi! My name is Charlie and I am a 8 month old Airedale Terrier/Shepherd mix.

 

Right now I am currently looking for my second home because I was returned due to a slight medical problem. Sometimes if I'm allowed to drink too much water and can't get outside in time, I will end up losing control of my bladder because it's 2x the size of a normal one. (My foster mom calls it overflow incontinence ) but she says if I monitor my water intake and go outside every few hours I will be just fine without medications!

 

Other than that, I don't have accidents often and I am a really happy dog with a lot of energy.

 

I'd prefer to be in a home with a backyard (a doggy door too) and another dog my size but it's not 100% necessary because I love being the center of attention. Unfortunately as much as I've tried I'm not too fond of cats and don't want one as a roommate.

 

My many hobbies include playing with toys, cuddling with my foster mom, and goofing off with the other dogs in the house. I love to make others smile and laugh, and I do my best to make everyone around me happy. If you'd like to meet me, I'd love to meet you too!

 

*Pick Up will be scheduled via email.
