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.

Here are some of the dogs that Charlie has rescued

These are Happy Dogs!

Katie was full of surprises!

Katie is staying with a Foster down south and was originally scheduled to arrive in Maine the first week of August.
The Foster noticed that Katie was a little fat.

Surprise!

Katie gave birth to four beautiful puppies!

It will be early November when the puppies are old enough and Mom is ready to travel to Maine to be adopted.  Check back on this web site for updated pictures and information about the puppies.

Daisy

Daisy and her brother were dumped in a rural Alabama shelter. Her brother was adopted but Daisy was not.

Why hasn’t anyone snatched Daisy up? She’s a GORGEOUS Boxer. She’s potty trained, spayed, GREAT with people, kids, dogs and even cats.
Daisy hasn’t gotten adopted because she has a large tumor on her leg.  The vet believes the tumor is cancerous and far too involved and complicated to remove.
Daisy just needs a place to live out the rest of her days in a loving, understanding environment.

Daisy

Daisy is in a tough spot.  The tumor on her left rear leg is cancerous and is too involved to be removed surgically.  It doesn’t seem to be bothering her much or causing pain, at least not yet.  We don’t know how long she will last but this is very likely a hospice situation.

Booboo

Booboo is a three year old male Chihuahua mix.  Booboo is in Maine now and staying with a Foster.

Booboo is completely housebroken.  He walks on a leash without pulling.  He doesn’t mind being in his crate when he can’t be snuggling with you on the couch.  Booboo is smart and catches on quickly to commands.

Rosey

Rescue Charlies Friends dog rescue in Maine
Rosey with her new family

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.

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.”

I am scared out of my wits.  I used to have a family.  I don’t know what I did that was so bad they dumped me on the side of the road.  Oh sure, the people where I am now treat me good and give me plenty of good food and fresh water.  They even pet me and talk to me.  But I used to have a REAL family.  I just want to be a part of a family again. 
I would be sooo much happier if I were on your lap.

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.”

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.”

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.

Black Pearl

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!”
