BIO:
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks but I am going to try my best to show that what "they" say isn't necessarily true! I am 10 now and I came to AGA when I was a typical, goofy and lively 1 and 1/2 year old boy, full of life and rarin' to go - as they say. I ended up being trained as a law enforcement dog and that is still what I feel like today but I want that to change. I've missed so much and starting life over is hard. I need someone who can help me because I have heard that I have missed so much. All work and no play is, indeed, what makes Charlie a dull boy! My foster is teaching me what it's like to live in a house instead of a kennel, to chase a tennis ball, and to take walks just for the fun of it. I'm learning that people want to be friendly and kind to me but I guess I met a lot of bad people along the way who made me so suspicious. I need a few meetings to get comfortable with a person. I might even get anxious and need some timeout in another room if strangers come by the house. Little kids can't understand all of that so they and other dogs should not be in my new home. And, there, that is what I have been getting to by telling you about me; a new home that I never have to leave. Someone to stay home with me a lot, not many strangers visiting and plenty to keep me busy like a Kong for chewing or a toy someone can throw for me to fetch. I'll need a fence and a room I can go to if company makes me nervous and, most of all, someone who will be patient, understanding and willing to let me learn. I am very good at staying alone if you have to go out so no worries there! I hope I can forget my old life - it was not a good one for a golden like me. AGA will give you all the help you need so you can help me learn how to be a real golden. I am so grateful for such a chance. Charlie
