Charlie is patiently waiting for his forever home with kind and caring people who will make him part of their family.  Like many shelter dogs, he is somewhat uncertain about his surroundings here, however, he is a sweet and laid back fellow, who very much enjoys some downtime, sitting on the couch with his human(s). Charlie would love to be outside and explore, but he would also enjoy settling down for a nap.

I am Jiggy and I've been breakin' it down since the Will Smith song came out all the way back in the dark ages of 1998. I survived Y2K. I was there during Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction and Britney Spears' break down in '07. I saw the rise of the smart phones and I can still remember the sound of dial up internet... but none of that matters now. I have come a long way to make it to RAL, and the only thing I am concerned with is the future.
