Charlie's Profile

Thank you for visiting my profile. My name is Charlie.

I am a male white and brown st bernard and australian shepherd.

I am about 10 months old old.

Could you be the right match for me?

Help the Ottawa Humane Society find a new loving home for me and more animals like me.

Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:

The staff at the OHS call me a Triathlete. Triathletes need lots of activities with you to keep them happy, so get ready to exercise, play games, provide puzzles, and more! Triathletes can be pretty mischievous without their daily workouts and will usually find their own outlets if not given enough to do. And while Triathletes are outgoing, they tend to put all of their focus into the current activity and can get frustrated by any interruptions. If you’re looking for that perfect training buddy, look no further! A Triathlete can be ready at a second’s notice to run miles with you, join you on a long distance bike ride, or chase their ball until the sun goes down (and then keep on going…). If you have an active lifestyle that doesn’t miss a beat, consider a Triathlete!

Mental exercise is an important part of a Triathlete’s day. Good mental activities include using a food dispensing puzzle for meals, giving frozen treats and food-stuffed toys, mixing it up with a variety of chew toys, hiding food and toys for them to sniff out, and playing training games! These exciting activities help to work their mind and tire them out while hanging at home.

I require an adult-only home that is located in a low-traffic area so that I can meet new friends in a controlled setting. My new owners must have significant experience owning high energy/mouthy large breeds. A home without small animals or cats is a must.

I have behaviour needs; please contact an Adoption staff member to inquire about me “Charlie” shelter number A231983.
