“Other people were coming in and admiring him and we felt pressured to make a decision.
At that point we decided to take him home.
The guard told us that he barked a bit at night.
We faced a lot of challenges at first.
He was six months old and had not been house broken, he barked incessantly and we lived in an apartment building.
We ended up getting a babysitter for Charlie in the evening.
He was quick to house train, but still has bouts of separation anxiety.
His barking has gotten better over the past few years.
We moved from Hong Kong to New York one the summer and Charlie was in a kennel in Hong Kong for two months while we looked for housing.
Charlie just came back from the airport.
He saw grass for the first time today in Central Park. and loved it.”
