He is currently 7 years and 8 months. He lived in a home with 2 adults and 2 children (2 and 7 years). He would let the 7 year old pet him, but owner didn’t usually allow him to interact with the children as owner was fearful he would bite.

He lived in a home with one other female dog and he was usually relaxed, playful, or tolerant around her and when he played with her, he was usually exuberant.

A Volunteer Writes: Sweet, dear Chuckie-an owner surrender at 7 years of age-waited for his walk. And waited, and waited, and waited. At noon, he had yet to soil his kennel, and it hurt our hearts to get him outside to realize just how used to a home he is. He is desperately eager to please, and such a dear, kind gentleman. He has lived peacefully with children and is lovely with other dogs and he could not be kinder with the humans. All we can do is try to get him out regularly and love him up, but we are so hoping you might be able to do him one better: Offer this gentle love-muffin a home with kindness and care. Our fingers will stay crossed until you appear!!!
A volunteer writes: Chuckie is with us as his family who owned him since the tender age of two month, is no longer able to care for him. Chuckie is now a seven year old orphan and homeless. He is known to be a cat lover but also lived with children and a female Pitie. From what his former master told us, it seems that Chuckie needs to know strange people or strange dogs before he feels comfortable meeting them. He is certainly fine and welcoming with me in his kennel, tail wagging, big face splitting smile and body wiggling. Chuckie is a strong dog who pulls a little on the leash, and seems to be very house trained. He is middle aged and is mind is set most likely on a number of things. He is a bit independent, preoccupied understandably by the new premises but after a while spent together, treats helping, he comes when I call him and sits next to me for petting.He seems thankful.I can see it in his eyes.. Chuckie loves food and will twirled in the air to catch dry liver. He could be a bit inpatient when I am not fast enough delivering the goodies to him…He is just like “your old grandpa”…., opinionated and “know it all”. It must be hard for him to “step down” from the pedestal he was sitting on…My heart goes to him…Chuckie seems to have been very well cared for.He owns a strong personality, comes with a set mind and would probably do best with a new master who can appreciate, understand, enjoy and make his, a pooch who has seven plus years of “experience” on his shoulders. He is quite powerful too and could knock down a small child or a frail elderly. I love my time with Chuckie, but I would love even more for him to be in a home with a loving family. I hope that soon enough, he will find his match…Could it be you?
04/28/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Chuckie pulls a bit on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Chuckie was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. He was not interested in toys but took the rawhide away but had soft body language. Chuckie approaches the helper dog with his tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed and lip long. Chuckie was surrender to us. According to his previous owner He lived in a home with 2 adults and 2 children (2 and 7 years). He would let the 7 year old pet him, but owner didn’t usually allow him to interact with the children as owner was fearful he would bite. He lived in a home with one other female dog and he was usually relaxed, playful, or tolerant around her and when he played with her, he was usually exuberant. Around other dogs, he can be aggressive, and owner states that he will growl at female dogs and lunge at male dogs. He has gotten along well with some female dogs however. He has also lived with many cats and was very respectful of them. He isn’t bothered if you touch his food bowl while he is eating. He growls when you remove a treat or a toy”. Because of his owner profile the behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1,2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Food: 1. Dog lifts head and ceases eating when you reach to pull the bowl away Toy 1. No interest. Rawhide: 1.
