Name: Charley    Best Guess for Breed: Labrador/Shepherd Mix

Best Guess for Age: 5 months as of 5/30    SEX: Male

Approximate Weight: 17 Lbs

Has Lived With: Other Dogs

Currently Living at: DC area foster home - Charley needs a FOREVER home!

Meet Mister Charley! This cutie patootie can't wait to make his way up to D.C. Charley is a 5 month old, 17 pound, Labrador/Shepherd Mix who loves scampering with other dogs and sniffing the summer blooms. Charley is still a young pup and will require obedience training to ensure that he learns good manners. He dreams of wagging his wiggles out at the dog park and snuggling his sillies out on the couch!

Charley was recently neutered in mid-May. He is currently being treated for Demodex and requires a dedicated family that will ensure he completes his full course of treatment.

Charley will need to go on long walks and regular runs or trips to the dog park to make sure he gets enough exercise and is well-socialized. Like most puppies, Charley will need to work on his housetraining.

*6/17 UPDATE*

Charley is sweet as can be and lives life to the fullest. He is GREAT with other dogs (he's currently living with 3 foster siblings that range from 45-70lbs). He LOVES to play with toys but he is going through a chewing phase so you have to watch him closely - he is easily redirected with another toy, however, and is a fast learner.
Charley does very well in the crate and sleeps in there through the night. 
Charley has NO IDEA that he has a skin condition - he is just as spunky and happy as the next dog! His treatments are going very well, he has one more dose of medication which is due in about three weeks and is on two pills daily, he is also getting 2-3 medicated baths a week and is very patient during the process. Mange does take some time to clear up but he seems to be feeling just fine. 
Charley is about 75% of the way house trained and is quickly learning - he LOVES to go on walks and is excited to meet everyone in the neighborhood. He is super sweet and would make any family VERY lucky!
