My Name is:  Charlie; 6.5 years old
Medical Profile: Tick Borne-Disease, Overweight
My Story: I’d lived on a chain outside in Kansas for a couple years until my owner passed away and no one wanted me. Being a good-natured Lab, I always saw the glass as half full in spite of my circumstances. It overflowed when I found out I was going to Safe Harbor!
Living outside all that time I had my share of ticks and ended up with ehrlichia, a tick-borne disease. It responded well to antibiotics. Once rescued and off that chain, I could indulge in my favorite game of endless fetch and catch . . .  and lose a few of my 105 pounds!
