When Katie Conway, the Founder and Executive Director of Chatting with Char Char started looking for a rescue, she was pleasantly surprised by the amount of options. She looked for a number of months before she met Charley. Charley was 2 or 3 years old when she was rescued. She was full of life and excited for her new adventure with her mom. However, Katie quickly realized having a rescue can be just as much work as adapting a puppy. She learned that Charley suffered from separation anxiety, anxiety to new people (especially men), anxiety to noise and fireworks….pretty much any anxiety you could imagine. Charley was also not socialized and had signs of being mistreated as a pup.
