(KGTV) — Say hello to our Pet of the Week: Charlie

Charlie

Charlie is a good boy who won’t give up searching until he finds his perfect forever home! This determined Chihuahua blend is loyal, kind, and wears his heart on his paw.

Radar #687886
- American Pit Bull Terrier
- Male
- 3 years old
- 52.3 lbs
- Adoption Fee: $0

Radar is a lively dog with love on the brain! This sweet face was flown all the way from Louisiana to avoid Hurricane Laura! It didn't take long for us to learn that Radar LOVES tennis balls. He spends most of his day carrying one around in his mouth, and so far we haven't seen him miss a catch! Like many dogs from the nation's humid southern states, Radar is positive for heartworms. During his treatment, it's important that he doesn't engage in strenuous exercise. Radar isn't able to chase after the ball the way he would like to, but he still enjoys a mellow game of toss and catch! He's a sweet affectionate guy who is looking for a human to cuddle, explore and play toss with.

Jasper #639117
- Domestic Short Hair
- Male
- 2 Yrs 6 Mths
- 14 lbs
- Adoption Fee: $65.00
Pet Profile: Click Here

Jasper is a sweet dude, who takes quite a long time to warm up to new people and situations. He loves his treats, so he catches onto training pretty quickly- he will run right into his crate for feeding time! Once he considers you a friend, he likes to have a chat- usually telling you he'd like more food (even though too many treats can give him an upset tummy). He is starting to learn how much fun wand toys are, but sometimes he makes you swish it around for a good 5 minutes before he'll finally get off his bed to come play.

Because he's timid, he'll need an adult home, and family who can read his body language- giving him the time and space he needs to warm up. He came from a home with other cats, and may tolerate having cat-siblings again. Additionally, he has shown some interest in meeting mellow, respectful dogs, and may accept dog-siblings, as well. His trainers adore him, and will want to talk to you before adoption, so they can let you know about all his quirks and how to help set him up for success in his new home. Reach out to us if you're interested in getting to know more about Jasper!
