A dog with “all the fixings,” that’s what they call me here at RAWL. Name’s Charlie and I’m well behaved, housebroken, good on a leash and well-mannered. I’m a 4-year-old Heinz 57 — a lab build, border collie color and a low-shed terrier coat. Go figure. It’s hard to tell what breed I favor. I like to hang out — I don’t retrieve very much or try to herd people or animals. Sunning myself is much more appealing than overexertion. If you’re looking for an easy-going companion, I’m undoubtedly your guy.
This past week, two of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Road, Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit www.rawldogs.org.
