Charlie, the Rhodesian Ridgeback mix rescue (he said, part 2)

“Her last dog was a Labrador Retriever, and they bond with more than one person.

Charlie is a Ridgeback Redbone Coonhound mix.

He was so sweet and gentle and she was just happy that I liked him and agreed to get a  dog that she said yes, to adopting Charlie.

He was great from the start, but six months later we found out he had heart worm.

That was challenging because he had several months of exercise restriction, including four weeks of just walking outside to go to the bathroom and then having to go right back inside.

He was confused and it was the only time I understood the concept of one day at a time.

He used to exercise four times a day before the heart worm diagnosis and all of a sudden he didn’t know why he couldn’t chase squirrels and rabbits and do his thing.”
