Charlie, a human-walker that is looking for a long-term family, lives now at Bryan Animal Caregivers:
1. What do you feel is your greatest achievement?
I’m a survivor! I’ve had an amputation and gained 45 pounds back. I’ve also recovered from a pretty serious drool addiction.
2. What, to you, is perfect happiness?
To one day have my very own human to cuddle with, to take me on long walks and provide me with an endless supply of belly rubs and tennis balls.
3. What one material possession would you save in the event of a fire (assuming your family was safe)?
My softball, I’m not much of a chewer but I love having something to call my own.
4. What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
When you’re happy wag your entire body.
5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I’m pretty close to perfect but I would like to like other dogs more.
6. What is your greatest fear?
That I won’t ever find that person I’m meant for.
7. What real or fictional person do you most identify with?
Huckleberry Hound. I identify with him because though I’m not a hound and I’m certainly not blue, I am relaxed, sweet and well intentioned and I have a wicked Southern drawl.
8. What is your greatest extravagance?
I’m just a simple guy right now but if you’re ready to show me what the sweet life is I’m ready for my giant Milkbone biscuit.
9. If money weren’t an object, how would you spend your time?
I would start up an internet matchmaking service for lonely people and dogs.
10. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
My dashing good looks.
11. What trait do you most admire in another person?
I admire compassion. You wouldn’t believe how great that makes a person smell.
12. What trait do you most deplore in another person?
Breed stereotyping. I mean really, if humans do that to other humans everyone gets upset about prejudice, but when humans do that to dogs it’s okay.
13. Who are your favorite musicians?
Jimmy Buffet is my favorite. I just love that island sound.
14. What are your favorite books?
“Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love” by Larry Levin. Just like me his life was saved by chance and he found his forever family. It gives me hope that there is someone out there for me.
15. What talent would you most like to have?
I’d love to be a rock star or a wizard, but for now I’d settle for learning to eat with my softball in my mouth.
