    Story

    Hi I’m Charles, I’m a quick get-up-and-go type puppy! I’m highly motivated and would love to learn all about dog sports!

    “Charles came from the Northwest Territories with a splint on his broken leg. He was on extended crate rest for quite a long while. Luckily his leg healed while in care and he’s quite the bouncy puppy now. 
    My caregivers would say I can be quite full of spunk. As a Border collie puppy i’m just full of life and have the need to get to things in 2.5 seconds. I’m speedy gonzalez!  I did suffer from a broken leg as a younger puppy, but that doesn’t hold me back at all. I am still quite young, so another dog to play with or doggy daycare are both great opportunities for me to get out to socialize. I absolutely LOVE food and treats. I LOVE slow feeder puzzles, kong wobblers and ice cubes. I do tend to get over excited around food and treats, so it’s best to set me up in a safe space where I can enjoy them without having to worry about someone possibly eyeing up my goodies. I am still a puppy so I do explore the world and play via mouth. I’m learning other ways to ask for attention and tell my caregivers when I’m feeling uncomfortable. For this reason a kid free home is best for me at this time. ”

    I’m an absolute love bug! I’m very interested in finding a family that has a job for me to do. Whether that is dog sports such as frisbee or flyball, herding, trick training or fetching the mail.

      Charles was on extended crate rest, while he was healing from a broken leg. Due to this he can get over-excited quickly and explore the world via mouth. Food and treats are highly important to him, he will need a quiet space, away from others, to enjoy his goodies.
