ITALIAN GREYHOUND MIX
Charlie came from a home where he was taunted and abused by the males in the home and brings with him the trust issues that result from such an upbringing. He needs a home where he will be allowed to settle in slowly and learn to trust his caregiver and will probably never be the type of dog who is comfortable going everywhere with his family. He prefers woman to men and once he warms up to you is a sweetheart of a dog. He is an Italian Greyhound mix – a breed that can be nervous anyway but a breed that also can be very cuddly and affectionate with their person. Charlie is one of those dogs. He does well with other dogs when given a proper introduction and some time to adjust to them but would probably do best in a cat free, kid free home. He is young and has great potential, just needs a home with someone willing to go slowly with him.
