Barney

Hey, we’re trying to get adopted here and this is the best they can do for pictures of us?  We are MUCH better looking than these pictures show.  There is a lot of competition to get adopted – just look at the other puppies up for adoption.  They get great pictures and we get – these.  I’ll ask them for some better pictures but in the meantime, rest assured we are good looking dogs.  You can take my word for it.  I would never lie to you.

Look – I’m on the couch and I’m not leaving any hair behind.  Isn’t that good?  Or would you prefer a shaggy dog that leaves its hair in piles all over the place?  It’s up to you.  Why not take me home?

I’m Ferry.  I know, I don’t like the name much either but if you will adopt me, we can pick out a new name for me, OK?

Rescue Charlies Friends Dog Rescue Maine

Hi, my name is Rex! My foster mom says I am small but mighty. If I could talk I’d tell her all about my previous life, but sadly they just have to create my own story. I would consider myself a petite Lab. So, if you’ve been looking for a lab, but wasn’t sold on the size I am your man. I love to chase the ball and play with my brothers. I even enjoy my human babies who are 3 and 1 years old. When I’ve had my fun outside I’ll lightly scratch on the door to say, “hey, I am done”. I love my crate and sleep so well at night. I love to eat my breakfast and dinner, and currently working to build my body mass backup. If you add me to your family I know you will love me forever because I will love and be a great family member❤️

2019 has been a huge success - lots of Rescue dogs adopted!

They gave me a bath.  It wasn’t my idea, but I went along with it just to humor the human.  She thought it was fun.

Please adopt me!

He is housebroken and except for begging for food at the high chair, he minds his manners well.

Murphy is good with people and kids. We don’t know about cats.

Murphy has been with a Foster who says that he shows some jealousy when her other dogs seem to be getting all the attention.  He might do best in a home where he is the only dog.

He was also with another Foster where there were very young children and no other dogs.  He was exceptionable.  No food aggression, great with the children.  The perfect dog.  Murphy is crate and potty trained.

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.
