Charlie has endured the loss of both of his eyes and his hearing, and the loss of his long time home and family. Soon after he came into rescue he had to immediately have his only eye removed due to uncontrolled glaucoma. This precious dog is stoic and interested in life. He has learned to navigate around his foster home both indoors and outdoors, including full sets of stairs. He does get confused at times and has to be lightly redirected with the leash to another area and then is fine again. He likes being around the other dogs. At night however, Charlie seems to get disoriented or confused and does not want to be left alone. It seems like when activity in the house stops at bedtime he knows and will bark and bark, thus leading to sleepless nights unless he is able to sleep in the bed or on the couch with his human companion. Charlie does want and need to be included in daily activities. He is a beautiful example of grace while living in silence and darkness. (Approx DOB 1/2008) He is afraid of yelling, toddlers, vacuums, thunder, fireworks. He cowers, hides, and tries to get near someone he trusts. He has enjoyed playing fetch with tennis balls in the past and he does have other favorite activities.
