A lengthy email was received by the rescue organisation we volunteer for Aniwell South Africa. The mail was from an irate adopter claiming that the puppy named Charlie he had adopted 2 months previously hasn’t turned out anything like he’d imagined and that he wanted to return him – pronto. Other than not appearing ‘pedigreed’ enough, the list of wrong doings and ‘crimes’ committed by the now 5 month old puppy painted a picture of an uncontrollable and aggressive dog that was putting the man’s children in imminent danger. The mail landed in my inbox in the late afternoon of 26th January and as Charlie had been homed in our neck of the woods, I volunteered to fetch him.
This is his story!
