Charlie will melt your heart when he flashes his big, charming grin. He is a big, playful boy that needs a sturdy human friend as he just will not accept that he is not a lap dog. He loves stretching out across your lap and getting a nice massage or just being close to you. He also likes to give hugs and will knock you over if you’re not careful. This big clumsy lug is just all heart. He likes to play ball, go for walks or bike rides and enjoys playing with some other dogs (though his size and zest can be a put off to some other dogs, getting him into trouble). To meet him, you might not believe that Charlie spent the first 5 years of his life tied to a 4 foot chain. But he has left that life behind and is just anxious to share all of the love he has with a person or family of his own. Charlie is about 80lbs, neutered, vaccinated and chipped. He keeps his room pretty clean as well and seems to be housebroken.
