Charlie's Success Stories
I’m Charlie and I can’t thank you enough for helping me rescue my friends!
We are incredibly grateful to all of you!
Scroll down to see some of my friends. These are the lucky ones that have been rescued, brought to Maine and adopted into loving homes. It took a lot of work and dedication from the many volunteers who made it happen. These are happy dogs.
I’m sure they join me in thanking everyone involved including all the volunteers, sponsors and our many generous donors.
These are Happy Dogs!
We adopted Rosey (previously known as Percy) in August 2018, and we recently celebrated our one year adoptiversary!
Rosey is such a WONDERFUL addition to our family, and we all wanted to let you know how grateful we are to you and your organization for rescuing her so that she could find another lease on life with us. My husband wasn’t entirely on board with getting a dog. and our then 5 year old daughter thought she wanted a dog, but wasn’t always so sure about it. Now, Claire loves nothing more than to get puppy kisses from Rosey and Ben keeps saying what a good dog we have.
We really are lucky to have a dog like Rosey. She is so loving, easy going, friendly, and just wants to be part of what is going on. She loves to snuggle, loves pats, loves her doggy friends in the neighborhood and at doggy daycare, and tolerates her kitty sister and brother, who she worries will take all of our attention and her food (so they can be great motivators for her to eat when she feels they are too close to her food). This past July we took a vacation to Scarborough beach where we rented a small apartment and were able to bring Rosey with us. While she LOVED the beach, she clearly was not a water dog and did not like getting close to the waves, let alone get in to any depth whatsoever. The best part about the vacation is we all went, which meant we could take walks on the beach in the morning and afternoon with Rosey, and it was just wonderful. We take family walks most days now with Rosey, and we’ve just incorporated taking Rosey for a walk as part of our lives.
Thank you for helping us to find Rosey, and thank you for all that you do. I know that for every Rosey that you rescue and successfully place, there are so many more dogs still to be rescued.
Deb, Ben, Claire and Rosey
Simone is a Great Pyrenees female. She is four years old. Very sweet, laid back showing no aggression with food, people or other dogs.
Don’t worry about my fur being gone. They had to shave it off because I was covered with ticks when they found me. My fur will grow back real quick and I will be beautiful again.
I’m not always this dirty. I’ve been playing in the mud.
Here is an update from the wonderful family that adopted Simone.
“She has been doing very well. Her fur is coming in nicely and she is getting along well with her kitty sisters. We just love her to pieces.”
Lola is a one year old Chihuahua mix. She is good with adults and kids. She is not good with cats. She is good with dogs her own size but a bit timid at first with big dogs.
She has a good disposition and is delightful to be around.
Before she was adopted, Lola was with a Foster who has seven dogs of her own. Lola, was a little timid at first, but did great with all of them.
Here are some updates from Lola’s Foster:
“She just jumped on the sofa and gave me a bunch of kisses while wagging her tail!”
“Kindness and understanding has changed her from a shaking, nervous, cowering pup to a grateful, affectionate and dedicated companion.”
Bo and Jethro
Bo (the black one) and his brother Jethro (the brown one) are eight week old Labrador / Hound mixes. Both are males.
Bo’s new familly writes: “
Just wanted to give you an update on bo now named hunter. He is settling in very very well. He’s very playful, he never barks ever. When he’s sleeping he will howl a little which is adorable. Having some good dreams I guess. “
“He is doing very well with potty training down to one to maybe two accidents a day. Sleeps great at night. Made lots of friends. Our neighbors have three little dogs and he loves playing with them. My mother in law had a yorkie and a lab and they love playing too.”
“He’s such a snuggle bug.”
” Overall he’s wonderful and everything we wanted.”
I’m Jethro. I think that’s a pretty cool name. Will you adopt me?
Here's Teddy Bear
Teddy Bear had evidently been target practice for someone with a pellet gun. When he was rescued from that horrible environment, pellets had to be removed from his skin.
Teddy Bear is living up to his name. He is very loving with kids, other dogs and loves to cuddle. He is a little shy around men but with a little patience, he soon warms up.
Teddy Bear has done great at doggy daycare. He is now with a Foster so we will soon have more information about how he does in a home environment.
Hi, I’m Teddy Bear. I’m a one year old Labrador mix. Even though I had a bit of a tough time recently, I don’t let that affect my disposition. I’m with a Foster now and life has never been so good.
I really want to be adopted. I will love you and your whole family. I just want to be a part of your family. Will you adopt me?
Hi, my name is Tucker. I am an Aussie, Collie mix. At least that’s what my mom said.
I am six month old male and I get along great with people and other dogs. I just want a little love. Will you adopt me?
Aggie is a one year old Chihuahua mix. She is a female.
I have a good disposition and I am good with kids, adults and other dogs. I haven’t been around cats much but I’m willing to try.
Lizzy is a three year old female, English Spaniel mix.
Will you adopt me? Please? I am a good dog and I will become your very best friend. Just give me a chance, OK?
My name is Lizzy and I am delightful, if I do say so myself.
Lola is a one year old Chihuahua mix. She is good with adults, kids and other dogs. She has a good disposition and is delightful to be around.
Lola is looking for a new home and a new family to love.
I’m Marley. I’m a Labrador / Shepherd mix. I’m female, nine months old and weigh 30 pounds. I am very sweet and playful. Will you adopt me?
Lucille is a one year old Labrador / Hound mix
In the south, Lucille was tied out back with only this trampoline for shelter and a rusty old coffee can for water.
We think she deserves better.
Lucille still loves people and gets along with everyone. She is a real sweetheart and will make a terrific addition to your family.
Mister and Twister
Mister and Twister are brothers. They are two year old Shih Tzu mixes.

German Shepherd / Retriever Mix
Black Pearl’s mom is a purebred German Shepherd. Black Pearl is seven months old, very sweet and shows no signs of aggression with food, people or other dogs.
Black Pearl is in Maine and staying with a Foster. Here is what her Foster says about her:
“Black Pearl truly is a gem! Going for a walk? She’s ready to join you! Getting in your car? She eagerly jumps in and quietly lies down to watch the scenery fly by. Pearl greets everyone with kisses and a wagging tail: cats, dogs, and people. But most of all she loves to play with you and then rest by your side. She is very smart and a quick learner as she looks to you for guidance. She is completely housebroken and is calm and quiet. Walking on a leash is a breeze as she listens to you telling her where you’re going. Her puppy energy is delightful and she plays with her many toys but she still needs to be monitored as to not grab things that are not toys. And when she does all you have to say is “Pearl no!” and she immediately stops. She is content with sleeping in her crate when no one is home and at night. Pearl is looking for her person(s) who will love her and continue teaching her new things!”
Black Pearl is in Maine and ready for adoption. Check out Black Pearl’s videos, courtesy of her Foster.
I’m Black Pearl and I’m just waiting for you. I want to be your very best friend!

What people are saying
I adopted a puppy from Rescue Charlie’s Friends on June 2, 2018 named August. My thirteen year old dog had passed away the month before.
I renamed him. Bud Lite. Bud because he is my Buddy and Lite because he is the Lite of my life.
I am some what of a hermit, but Buddy gets me out walking everyday. We have met many wonderful people and other dogs on our walks.
He means everything to me.
PLEASE keep up the good work you are doing both for the dogs and the families that are fortunate enough to adopt them.
