Meet Charlie!   He has got to be one of the cutest most gentlest dogs I've ever seen.   I am a little biased because Charlie is my sisters dog now.  Charlie became a family member only a few days ago.

Charlie is a rescue dog and my sister fostered him for a while until deciding she just could not give him up.  My sister has been volunteering as a transport assistant with Small Dog Rescue of Minnesota.

Sara already has three dogs, so she was offering help by transporting and temporary care situations.   Charlie was not in the plan with her already full home.  Charlie's story has a happy ending, but this might not have been the case.
