It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Charlie - It's only Rock 'n Roll, but I Like it!

If ever there was a Man who loved to Rock 'n Roll, it's CHARLIE!

Remember when we said we'd be learning more about our four Cast Aways and their musical tastes? Well, this is the hard-core rocker, right here! Clearly his collection of Metallica is intact - even though he's not any longer!

Charlie is the Classic Teenage Boy: He's about 2 years old, at the most, so think "17-year-old boy, with a bit of A.D.H.D. (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) going on." He thinks he is the top of the heap, but it only takes a real Pembroke Princess to call his bluff!

What does this mean to a potential owner? It means that you'll see an incredibly active, enthusiastic, outgoing personality, and a Big Smile 24/7! This is an energetic, happy little dog, ready for any activity you can dish out. He'd be an excellent agility prospect, if you're so inclined.

Because he's a young, active dog, it is critically important that Charlie find a home with a corgi-experienced owner; someone who has the knowledge to train and socialize him properly. This boy would benefit from basic obedience training, but most importantly, he absolutely MUST have a home in which he clearly understands that YOU are Pack Leader. He is actually an Alpha-Wanna-Be and not difficult to correct, when you understand his game plan. He will do what any strong-willed Corgi is best at: He will TEST...again, and again, and again!

This little fellow is actually a Bundle of Fun. We've been extremely amused by him and he'd be very happy with a female canine companion in the household. Because he thinks pretty highly of himself, it would be best for him to be the only male dog.

If you want a dog that Loves to Rock 'n Roll...this is your guy! We will be officially posting him for adoption on the website very soon and will be screening applications. Charlie is ready for his new home, and very excited to find it!

If you're looking for a dog with Personality, Plus - look no further! The pictures tell the story (see below):

Am I not the cutest little fellow you've ever seen?

Hey There, check me out! This is my Best Side!

Sometimes I could just HOWL, life is such a kick!

Oh, all these rules and restrictions! 
They're just meant to be tested, I say!

Mick's my Hero...Sticky Fingers got nothin' on me!

OK, sorry if I scared you with the tongue thing...I'm really a pretty nice little guy!

I am SO ready to come Home...can I, can I...when? 
Just say the word and I'm There!

I'm so pleased to read how quickly this lucky crew have grown into happy dogs. If the pictures are anything to go on Charlie has one of the best smiles of the bunch! Give him an extra snuggle for putting a smile on my face this morning!
