Bear looks just like a honey baked ham, he’s so adorable.
He’s very round, and doesn’t have a neck, so it’s hard for him to reach back and scratch his back end. You might have to help him with that sometimes.
Bear is a LOVE. Very affectionate. Mostly low energy “couch potato” with bursts of energy.
He would make a great family dog with kids (no little kids, he might accidentally knock down).


Bear loves people and other dogs and will be good on outings on leash, but needs to be the only dog in the home because he sometimes is possessive of his toys.


He is a happy dog that is looking for the perfect home.

From Foster to Adopter

I have always been a dog person.
For as long as I can remember I have had a special bond with these four legged loves.
When my karma died I thought that my heart would rip in two. To me, and many other pet owners, a dog is very much a part of your family, another child. There is nothing like the love that a dog has for their humans.
For many years I have wanted another dog, but as we all know it’s a lot of work and I’ve got enough going on in my life, Ha! 

Fostering has been wonderful, it helps teach my kids responsibility, it shows them the importance of volunteer work and helping other beings, we get to have puppies around, and we got to save all of these beautiful dogs who otherwise wouldn’t have it so great.

I would highly recommend it for anyone out there who is a dog lover. It’s hard, yes, because you do fall in love, but it also gives life so much meaning, and it’s such an amazing feeling to see these dogs go to a new special home after coming from not so great circumstances.

This dog right here came into our life by chance. We are going away and the rescue just needed help with her for the weekend so they asked us. From the moment she got into our car, something was different. There was an immediate bond with my oldest and when we took her home it quickly extended to everyone. It just felt like she was coming home. We were absolutely not thinking about getting another dog right now, but just like Hazel, we absolutely could not let her go. She just fit. Even Hazel is realizing that she has a new body. This poor sweet dog had a rough beginning, but we’re here to make sure that the rest of her life is a grand one! I am so thankful that this sweet soul chose us. ❤️

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.

Will you adopt me?

Beautiful Dakota is a loving well behaved little Princess. She is medium to high energy- will do GREAT with an active, on-the-go family that likes to jog, hike, etc. Dakota has a sad background (don’t they all?), she was adopted to a family with a dog that repeatedly attacked her. Because of this, she is now dog selective and needs to be the only dog in the home. But she gets along with most dogs, that’s what’s so sad. And she’s perfect on outings (on leash of course). She loves to meet and greet other dogs.  She would make the perfect family dog. No really little kids because she’s big and might accidentally knock them down

Hi.  They call me Warrior.  Did they tell you about me?  No?

Well, first of all my name is Warrior.  My parents told me that I am a Labrador mix.  What I want you to know is that I am really very sweet and I just love everybody.  Kids, people, everybody.  Bring ’em on and I love them all.  I love other dogs too.

By the way in case they didn’t tell you, I’m thirteen weeks old and I’m a girl.

Bear

Bear is a male American Staffordshire Terrier about two to three years old.

Hello there – I’m Bear.  How YOU doing? 

All the girls say I’m handsome, lovable and adorable. You can’t really blame them for saying that, I am a good looking dude.    

Sometimes they say I look just like a Honey Baked Ham – Very round without much of a neck, so it’s hard for me to reach back and scratch my back end. If you don’t mind, you might have to help me with that sometimes.

I am an absolute LOVE.  I’m very affectionate. I’m mostly a low energy “couch potato” with bursts of energy now and then. 

I think I will make a great family dog with kids (no little kids, I might accidentally knock them down).

I  love  people and other dogs and will be good on outings on leash, but I need to be the only dog in the home because I want ALL the attention and I don’t want just any dog playing with my toys.  

I’m a happy dog looking for a home and a family I can love.

Hello everybody.  They call me “Junior” and I’m a boy.  I love everybody but I tend to be a little skittish around men.  I actually like women better but I’m good with men once I get to know them a little. 

I still have some puppy energy and I really love to walk and to play.  Want someone to walk with?  I’m your dog!

Will you please adopt me?

Have you heard my story?  Well, my name is Junior and I was wondering around hoping to find something to eat.  things just weren’t going too well.

I girl found me and took me home.  It was wonderful.  She saved her money to get my veterinary needs taken care of and she fed me and gave me lots of love.

But then she went away to college and her parents couldn’t keep me, so I came to this shelter.  I was really really scared.  They have been kind to me but it’s just not the same as having a home.

They told Rescue Charlie’s Friends about me and they are bringing me to Maine.  They said that I will get adopted and have a family to love!  I can hardly wait!  I really hope I get adopted.

Even though I’m a little shy around men at first, I love everybody and I’m good with other dogs too.

Will you adopt me?  Please? Look, I’m already potty trained and I don’t eat shoes anymore.  So can we be a family?

Friday, May 1st, 2020:

Charlie is at the Hospital fighting for his life.

He was fine, happy and playing last night.  This morning  he collapsed and was unable to stand or walk.  We rushed him to the veterinarian who found that he was bleeding internally due to tumors on his spleen.  Surgery is not recommended because the cancer has likely already spread.  He is at the hospital now and they are trying to stabilize his blood pressure and get the bleeding to stop.  If successful, we will bring him home later tonight and he will be on Yunnan Baiyao for the rest of his days.  This is not a cure but it may give him a few more weeks or months of life.  The veterinarian does not believe that he is in pain.  We are sorry to say if his vitals won’t stabilize we will have to say good bye to Charlie. Please wish him well!

Friday night update 8:30 PM Charlie came out of the hospital walking on his own with his tail wagging.  We got him home and he went downhill a bit and had to be carried to his bed. He is in his bed now and we will have to wait and see how he is in the morning.
Friday night update 11:30 PM Our beloved Charlie died quietly in his bed moments ago.  He was comforted by the ones he loved during his last moments.  We will always love him.

Charlie’s Dream 
Charlie was an inspiration for all of us, humans and dogs. He saved hundreds of dogs and maybe some humans too in his years working with Rescue Charlie’s Friends. He saw all the dogs passing through and we think he knew he was doing something wonderful.

Rescue Charlie’s Friends will live on in his memory and continue to rescue dogs. Charlie’s dream was to have his own building where he could receive the transports indoors out of the weather and operate not just as a dog rescue but as a dog shelter. We will do all we can to make his dream come true.  You can help with a donation to his GoFundMe account.

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.

What people are saying

From our Foster now Adopter!
I have always been a dog person.
For as long as I can remember I have had a special bond with these four legged loves.
When my karma died I thought that my heart would rip in two. To me, and many other pet owners, a dog is very much a part of your family, another child. There is nothing like the love that a dog has for their humans.
For many years I have wanted another dog, but as we all know it’s a lot of work and I’ve got enough going on in my life, Ha! 

Fostering has been wonderful, it helps teach my kids responsibility, it shows them the importance of volunteer work and helping other beings, we get to have puppies around, and we got to save all of these beautiful dogs who otherwise wouldn’t have it so great.

I would highly recommend it for anyone out there who is a dog lover. It’s hard, yes, because you do fall in love, but it also gives life so much meaning, and it’s such an amazing feeling to see these dogs go to a new special home after coming from not so great circumstances.


This dog right here came into our life by chance. We are going away and the rescue just needed help with her for the weekend so they asked us. From the moment she got into our car, something was different. There was an immediate bond with my oldest and when we took her home it quickly extended to everyone. It just felt like she was coming home. We were absolutely not thinking about getting another dog right now, but just like Hazel, we absolutely could not let her go. She just fit. Even Hazel is realizing that she has a new body. This poor sweet dog had a rough beginning, but we’re here to make sure that the rest of her life is a grand one! I am so thankful that this sweet soul chose us. ❤️
