Good grief! It’s Charlie Brown, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. This good boy is an adult American Staffordshire Terrier mix from Raleigh, North Carolina. Charlie Brown is already neutered, good with dogs, and house trained.

Charlie Brown’s Tale:

My name is Charlie Brown, but you could also call me “Chuck.” Like my namesake, I may have started out as an underdog, having more than a few footballs pulled out from under me. However, I am heroically optimistic and full of determination and hope.

I am loyal to the people I love. I am a great listener – I won’t even charge you 5¢ for the psychiatric help! I love snuggling on laps and could let you pet me for hours on end. I am a wonderful work-from-home partner as I will attentively lay by your side until you decide it’s time to play. I am a great big brother and love having a little dog brother and sister to play with and chase around. I have done well meeting other dogs too, but proper introductions are always important.

I love going on adventures, meeting new people, and riding in the car, especially when those adventures involve going to get ice cream or a “puppuccino.” I am a well-mannered boy who is house trained, crate trained, knows “sit,” and is working on other commands. Good grief! Don’t you want to meet me yet? I could be the Charlie Brown to your Snoopy.
