Charlie Mack, schnauzer mix
Charlie Mack is a lovable male schnauzer mix in the care of Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Charlie Mack is happy to keep company with other dogs. He has had all of his shots, and he's neutered. Good news: He is already house-trained.
Here's what Charlie Mack's friends at Last Hope K9 Rescue think of him:
Charlie is a sweet dog with low energy. Every once in a while he likes to play with his humans, with a stuffy or play-wrestling. He doesn't try to play with other dogs and is pretty indifferent about them. Charlie resource guards high value food but is fine with toys and bones around other dogs, he needs slow intros and supervision with other dogs for this reason.

Mia Tia is a small dog with a big personality. She has typical chihuahua tendencies and does not back down to the big dogs, but takes correction well.
