Chelmsford Weekly News: Charlie (RSPCA)Charlie (RSPCA)

Gender - Male

Age - Three years old

Breed - Newfoundland

Colour - Black

Charlie is described as a friendly and sometimes overexcitable dog who has not had much experience of the world outside the small garden he lived in before coming into the RSPCA's care.

Ideally new adopters would have some experience of owning large breed dogs before. Charlie will need all his basic training starting from scratch. He loves treats so with positive reinforcement he should be a quick learner. 

He is used to sharing his space with other dogs, so could potentially share with another dog pending a dog meet.

If you want to adopt Charlie, you can view his full profile here.
