Charlie’s story was a very sad one up till now. A story of a young dog roaming the streets of Modrica, a city in Bosnia. A little chap feeling lost and searching for food and love. For a place where he can belong and be truly wanted. A pup who had lost his family and was all alone. A youngster who was regarded as unsightly and a nuisance. A poor soul who was in danger of not living to see the next day. This was when Bojan from the Bark Ark shelter was alerted and asked to remove Charlie from the streets. Without hesitation he swiftly did so and brought Charlie to safety in his rescue shelter.


Even though Charlie was now safe and he had food as well as care, the shelter is very busy with hundreds of dogs and not a long term solution for any dog. It feels noisy and stressful for many of the canine residents and they are coping to various degrees. Despite his cute looks Charlie was never picked and is now one of the long termers in the shelter. He has been waiting to be chosen for over 3 years now. Always hoping, waiting…, but nobody ever did come for him. When we were shown Charlie we had to step up for him. How could we not? Look at this darling soul! He deserves his chance of happiness as much as all the other dogs.


Charlie will be coming to us here in Cornwall once resources and logistics allow and will be looking for his very own forever home in the area of Devon/Cornwall.


In the meantime if you would like to support Charlie a bit, please donate for him whatever you can. Every single penny makes a difference. Charlie will thank you will love and gratitude. 


Thank you so much for reading Charlie’s story. We will update on him as soon as more information is shared with us. 

For more updates on Charlie please follow him on his page here or on Facebook where we will post updates as soon as they become available. 

With love, gratitude & paws from Charlie and P2F ♥
