Charger is a 5 year old black
and tan male who was named for his owner's favorite football team,
the San Diego Chargers. He is black and
tan with a cute expression that says, "Play with me! Play
with me!". He is full grown at 70-something pounds
and has a nice coat.
Charger loves people of all sizes and
shapes--but he plays a little too roughly for small children. He's exuberant and strong, but eager to please.
Obviously, he has not had much training, but he is already beginning to
respond to positive instruction. Charger does very nicely with female dogs,
but he will stand his ground with males if they challenge him.
We think that with the proper introduction he would be fine with a non-aggressive male dog
his own size. Charger has been receiving
private training lessons on a regular basis. He is doing
very well, and is especially responsive when spoken to in soft yet
firm tones, and when rewarded with praise and treats. He is
a happy boy with a lot of love to give.
Charger was turned in by his owners who
claimed to have "no time for" him in their lives any
longer. Despite being dumped, Charger bears no hard feelings
toward people, but he can't wait to get out of his kennel run and
into a warm and loving home.
