ABOUT CHARLIE and SUGAR: 2023 has been a rough year for Charlie and Sugar. Their owner passed away, and they found themselves at the County Shelter begging for a rescue. VIP Rescue answered their call, and the rest is history! First stop, a much-needed groom for both of these lost souls…….it had been a long time since they had been groomed. Big thanks to our volunteer groomer! Next stop to the veterinarian; a dental for both, and Charlie opted to have a growth removed, it turned out to be a benign lipoma, typical of the breed at his age. Next stop was onto their foster home that was waiting for them with open arms! This is what their foster home says about Charlie and Sugar:

“The definition of joy and love comes in a package of Charlie and Sugar. They are a bonded pair that delight anyone that has the opportunity to share time with them. Sugar is the boss and Charlie willingly follows her lead. Sugar loves to have Charlie chase her around the house and yard. They enjoy walks around the neighborhood. In the evening they both relish in giving and receiving attention from the humans in the home. Sugar will prance and wiggle around to get your attention while Charlie will just walk up to you and sit beside you in hopes that your hand will find itself petting him. They sleep curled up together at night. If you are in the market to share your love, time and energy please put your application is for these two wonder dogs.”

Both Charlie and Sugar are house trained, good on a leash, like toys, and enjoy other dogs. Both are up to date on vaccines, had dentals, microchipped, heartworm negative, and in good health for their age. They want to be an active participant in your daily life. High quality food is essential and not cheap. Both dogs require monthly grooming, and frequent brushing. Grooming ranges from $75 – $150 each. They so love being around people and are looking for a great place to land that enjoys seniors, and their simplicity of life.
