This is Charlie! He is a neutered 10-12 year old Maltese X. He came to New Leash Rescue as an unclaimed stray that was at a local impound for a month waiting for someone to help him. Based on his behavior, we think he was a puppy mill dad- living a better part of his life in a crate or pen. He walks in circles and paces around the house. He has a heart murmur and has had echocardiagrams a dental cleaning and is up to date on all of his shots, heartworm testing, and bloodwork.
Outside potty training has been a challenge. He uses pee pads and is successful only about 50% of the time. He will go potty outside, but it takes him time.
Charlie would love to go to a home with another older dog. He really looks to the dogs for guidance. He loves to follow them around and takes cues from them. He would not do well as a single pet based on his background.
He has moments of pure joy and hops around with crazy zoomies! He is learning to be a loved member of a family!
Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.
