Charlie may be a big boy, but you couldn't ask for a sweeter one! This precious pooch, still an adolescent at heart has lots of energy and enthusiasm for life. He is also eager to please and responds quickly to new commands. It doesn't appear that Charlie had much boundary-setting in his life before the shelter, but with training walks with a corps of devoted volunteers, he is certainly going to pick up some good manners so that he can show off his best self when you come to meet him. Charlie gets along great with other dogs his size, both male and female, and has had play sessions with a few of his kennel neighbors in our enclosed play-area. Charlie would do best in a home where he will get lots of exercise and where he will find strong leadership in his people. If this describes your lifestyle, consider meeting Charlie, one of the most handsome boys on the block!

60/6/60 Adoption Program, Partnering Senior Animals with Senior Friends -- If you are 60 or older and adopt an animal who is 6 or older, you'll get 60% off the adoption fee!
Adoption Criteria (Non Pit Bull Type Breeds):
In order to qualify as an adopter, you must bring proof of home ownership or your rental contract showing you are allowed to have pets before the adoption can be completed. If you're coming to adopt a new family or household pet, please bring your family members or other members of the household with you to the shelter -- including any other dogs in the family. We want to make sure your new dog is a good fit for both 2-leggers and 4-leggers alike.
Additional Adoption Criteria (Pit Bull Type Breeds):
If you're applying to adopt a pit bull type breed, in addition to the standard adoption criteria, your rental contract must specifically state you are allowed to have a put bull type breed dog at your residence; you must be over 25 years of age; and you must pass a home inspection before the adoption can be completed.
As an added bonus, when you adopt a pit bull type breed through BACS, you can attend Bad Rap's Pit Ed training classes for FREE (normal fee $100). These classes are extremely popular and can have a 6 month waiting list. But, when you adopt a pittie from us, you get to skip the wait and start attending classes right away. You won't find this incredible opportunity through any other shelter. You can read more about Bad Rap's Pit Ed on their website: badrap.org/
