Charlie Brown, a chocolate boy approximately 1 1/2 years old, was found on the street and picked up by the dog catcher and turned into the Tulsa Animal Shelter. His owners chose not to claim him.
It was obvious Charlie B had some problems that needed medical attention. It was found that he suffered from grade II-III medial patellar luxation (the patella, or knee cap, pops out of place toward the inside of the leg and often does not return to place without being pushed back in) on his left hind leg, he appeared blind in his left eye and he had entropion.
Because of his problems it was determined that even with medical attention and proper rehabilitation that Charlie Brown probably wouldn't be a good field dog. However, his sweet nature and excellent personality combined with his ability to get along very well with other animals and bond to others made him a wonderful candidate for best friend and chief pot licker. Charlie B came through his surgeries just fine and he is being fostered and rehabbed by a 3rd year OSU veterinarian student, while awaiting the right family for him so he can have a forever home that will love him like he deserves.
