Meet Charlie. This 10-year-old Labrador retriever mix may be a senior, but he still has plenty of pep in his step. He is an active, energetic boy who loves to play and loves meeting new people, making friends with just about everyone he meets. Charlie is a huge fan of water and loves to play in pools and splash around. He’s looking to lose a few pounds, so he’d like a family who can commit to keeping him fit with regular walks and play time outdoors. Charlie is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas.
