Hopefully, if all goes well, I'll be bringing this little guy home next week. Gotta get through the 2 visits (that's cruel :doh:) with him before I can adopt.. and then home sweet home.

I hope this comes out as the petfinder page-- if not.. can someone refresh me on how to paste a petfinder page in here? Thanks..

Talk to you all soon

He is a very sweet looking dog. Why do you have to have two visits with him? Does he come to your house or do you go to him?

hey susan!

Rescue rules say I have to visit him once (at fosters house 2 hours away) then sleep on it...and pick him up at a later time.

Seems harsh.. but.. i understand.. BUT... lots of emails have gone back and forth and I'm committed... so..still don't understand.. But, it has to be..

I am a very patient person.. I can see tho, why most folks out there run to pet store... much easier.. I think we have to make the rescues a bit more
inviting and flexible so all the PTS'ers DON'T GET PUT TO SLEEP!!

carolina and Faith...

you're too kind.. thanks! I decided to test my patience and go with rescue.. and it's tested alright... but, in the end.. worth it...

he looks like what you'd call a "faithful companion" type... so very regal...

he came from the carolinas, I believe.

Well.. now it means I gotta get my lazy behind outta bed earlier! :bowl:

He sure is cute! thanks for adopting. I wish more people would and that less dogs needed rescuing. Here's his petfinder page and additional pictures:

More About Charlie-Lab

Good looking, adorable, tendered hearted and just a tad timid, this boy melts hearts! Charlie, a nearly 6 month old boy is curious by nature, well behaved and just a wonderful boy! Crate trained with not one accident since his arrival in his foster home, Charlie has stolen our hearts and been a joy to foster. He's sweet, charismatic and calm for a young pup. Still, he is a pup and will need consistent, positive reinforcement for desired behaviors so that he can flourish into a valued, enjoyable family member. He's a charmer! Better hurry to meet this boy or we may adopt him ourselves!! If you are interested in adopting, or for Last Chance Dogs, in helping by fostering, or fostering to adopt, please complete an application and send in ASAP.

Pat, that youngster is a cutie! I'll bet you're jumping out of your skin with impatience to get him home. Thanks for rescuing, even though it does take lots of patience sometimes.
