IAMRA's Sanctuary Sweethearts
Sanctuary Sweethearts at IAMRA are dogs that for various reasons are deemed unadoptable. So IAMRA will provide them with their forever homes. Many many thanks to those of you who provide your continuing donations to help us care for our dogs!!!
Charger - May 2013
Charger has had some additional complications, possibly related to his PN, so at this time, he is staying in Sanctuary. This 2 - 3 year old boy came to us all the way from Kansas. Charger absolutely loves people and attention. He flops for belly rubs for anyone who will pet him. He is a charming and fun dog, full of exuberance and energy. Charger loves going for walks and has excellent leash manners. He does get a bit excited when he sees other dogs, but settles down. He loves his toys and even plays ball and brings it back. :-) Charger knows basic commands well (sit, down, stay and come). He is a bit of a resource guarder, but with proper guidance he is overcoming this bad habit. Charger has been diagnosed with Polyneuropathy (DNA tested through University of MN), an inherited genetic nerve disorder, but it by no means slows him down - he is a high energy boy! The only thing you might notice is he is a bit clumsy with his hind legs.
Charger has a microchip sponsor - with love from IAMRA alums Zoe & Racer
