HERE COMES CHARLIE, THE LOW RIDER!!!
Put together a yellow Labrador Retriever and a Basset Hound and what do you get??? You get Charlie! Charlie was found as a stray on Sept. 5, 2011 and has been at the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter since that date. He is about one year old and has been neutered.
Charlie makes you smile! He has the face and body of a Lab and the legs of a Basset Hound. He is a high energy dog whose greatest joy in life is to play with a ball or any toy that he can find. Charlie loves people and he expresses himself like any other Lab. through his beautiful light brown eyes. Charlie is the kind of dog that you look at twice to make sure that you really saw what you saw. He is an amazing dog.
Charlie is a strong dog and will need appropriate handling. He will also need some training to be the best dog he can be. For example, when walking through the shelter Charlie does react to the other dogs who are barking and jumping as he passes by. It's hard to tell if he has real "issues" with other dogs or if it's the environment. Shelter life is stressful for the dogs in so many ways. However, Charlie is still young and has a lot of potential!
Please help Charlie find his forever home. Not only is he a loving, people-oriented dog but he will be a source of conversation wherever he goes. He is quite a unique boy and he deserves a home of his own. Please help Charlie, the low rider Lab/Basset Hound! -- Mirja Bishop
