Dog Rescue Stories: Charlotte (with the Good Ears) Is Always By Her Forever Mom’s Side

By Jarissa Aquinde, Positively Woof Rescue and Adoption Story Editor

About a year ago, Hannah met a little, scared pup only known as Animal ID#A482508. She was picked up as a stray by animal control outside of Seattle. She was so scared to leave the shelter that she peed on the floor as they walked her out (something she’s never done since). Hannah brought this nervous, little, shaven-bellied girl home, not really knowing what to expect.In the past year, Charlotte has accompanied her forever mom (by plane, train, bus, subway, ferry, and bike) almost wherever she goes: across the country, into too many public restrooms, into professors’ offices, and pretty much everywhere else.In her first months at home, she was only willing to climb into her grandpa’s lap if he coaxed her with pickles. Now, she is a bright, sweet, goofy, loving dog who makes friends everywhere she goes and won’t hesitate to greet a stranger! She recently made friends with an elderly dog whose owners believed he could never make a dog friend. She has made a dog-lover (or at least Charlotte-lover) out of a girl who used to be terrified to see a dog on the street. She snuggles when it’s cold and gets her mom out of bed in the morning with her silly antics.

Charlotte amazes her mom every single day, and she’s so thankful to have given her a forever home.

Doggos of America, I has got to tell you something. There is a thing that is happening called the “Saint Patrick’s Day.” Maybe your human is saying “oh it is so fun a thing that all will enjoy.” Do not listen. The “Saint Patrick’s Day” is a thing when you are just walkin down the sidewalk sniffin a tree and then there is lots of loud and stinky people coming to you. Some is also wearing the scary monster costume or maybe there is also scary monsters. The stinky people is screaming and trying to touch you and then there is some sound of drums and loud toots and you is afraid but you must go past all the scary things to get home. I do not enjoy. “Saint Patrick’s Day” is not a good thing for doggos. Love, Charlotte. #importantinfo #tellyourfriends #nothankyou ✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴✴ Go check out my friends @wonderfulworldofollieandlucas and @ring_around_miss_rosie

Getting a bit of reading in before I go to sleep. I’m really into scifi at the moment. #dogswhoread
