It's official! The very adorable 7 year old Charlie got ADOPTED!! 💙🐶🙌🏽 Little Charlie was originally found alone in an apartment building. He hadn't been properly cared for in awhile and was severely matted. So bad so that he had to be sedated in order to be shaved down. When we met Charlie at the city shelter he was trembling in his cage and nervous about everything. So many life changes for this little guy. Charlie was pulled by @shelterchic rescue and became part of our new #famousfosters program with @fosterdogsnyc. He was fostered by the amazing @ohlittleasianone who helped spread his story far and wide!
Jesse saw Charlie's story and her family was immediately drawn to him. They've always had two shih tzus, Chloe and Bailey, and when Chloe passed away recently it was a very difficult loss for them. And especially for Bailey. Jesse knew the next dog who came into their family would be a rescue, but she was surprised and nervous about considering adoption so soon. But as Jesse learned, it's not about replacing, it's about healing. Charlie has found the most loving and patient home and we are so thankful for them!
Jesse wrote, "I chose Charlie because, of course, his face is irresistible. But mostly because after losing my Chloe, our Bailey's sadness was heartbreaking. He has never know a day without her. We needed him to have a companion. I also believe that Chloe sent us Charlie. So many little things say so, like the fact that they both share the same two letters of their name. And the morning I was going to visit Charlie I woke up with anxiety and doubt. I almost texted to say that I changed my mind but then a post came across my Pinterest that truly sounded like it was sent to me from Chloe. She knows that Charlie is going to heal my family a lot quicker with him around. We will not forget her but we will have some comfort with this new addition that needs a lot of love.
Charlie is a cuddle bug, small but super confident. He is so sweet, smart and a good listener. I know with time him and Bailey will be best buds. They already look like siblings. In just two days we all love him already. He is a thief of hearts." ❤️ #seniordog #adopted
