Adopt Charlotte a Brown/Chocolate Mixed Breed (Large) / Mixed dog in Decatur
Charlotte is our free spirit, our wild child, slightly naughty, a tad mischievous and 100% her own lady. She has a big personality and zero social skills training. Being in a shelter, she missed all the basics: Proper Hello Etiquette 101, that seminar on leisurely leash-walking, all of it. She missed all of it. But, here's the thing, friend. Charlotte is the smartest girl in the shelter. Give her some time, teach her some basics, and this girl will amaze you. She just needs someone who can show her the ropes of what it means to be a great dog, and then she'll take it from there. Charlotte already knows sit, stay and wait. She's never met a treat she didn't like. So, you could use lots of praise and little bits of cheese to teach her everything she needs to know. Charlotte loves exercise of any kind, playtime, being with her people and naps. She loves learning and being praised for how smart she is. She loves going on adventures and taking walks. She loves being outdoors and feeling the sun on her face. She loves snacks and chew toys and biscuits. She loves belly rubs and ear scratches, which she calls "scritches," as in, "Gimme some scritches, please." The one thing Charlotte doesn't love is other dogs. In fact, she's a hot mess around them. We don't know why - and we wish we could just sit on the front stoop and have a beer and talk about it. So, if you can be happy with one dog with a boatload of personality, and hanging out at dog parks isn't really your thing, Charlotte is your girl.
