Hi-Tor's Pet of the Week: Charlotte

Each week we highlight another wonderful adoptable pet available at Hi-Tor Animal Care Center (Rockland County's only animal shelter) located in Pomona, NY.


BET YOU CAN'T GUESS HER BREED?! Charlotte is a young, gorgeous and unique mix of Siberian Husky and French Bulldog! This doll craves human attention and love and will make a great companion. Much like a Husky she has a high energy level and will make the perfect running or biking buddy. And if you happen to work out of your home and have a fenced-in yard this just might be THE dog for you! Charlotte is a smart cookie who has basic obedience training, has already been spayed, is house-trained and is currently in a foster home with one of our staff. She's great with other dogs and promises to give your dog a great daily workout! Her one desire is to be around her people where she feels secure and taken care of. What you will receive in return is truly priceless.

To meet Charlotte, please contact Hi-Tor Animal Care Center, 65 Firemens Memorial Drive, Pomona, NY. (845) 354-7900.

Who is Cotton? Charlotte is a beauty.

Chris, thanks for pointing that out. We updated "Cotton" to Charlotte. Check this space for "Cotton" the cat next week.

Leslie, Do you know if James and Beethoven have been adopted yet?
Richard Maurer February 20, 2013 at 11:39 PM
James current status is adoption pending. Beethoven was adopted on February 11.

Her previous owner definitely stated she's not a husky or a French bull dog she's a Pitbull mix... You guys should really stop lying to potential owners if you really want her to get a new home!

Any dog lover or "dog advocate" would not be trying to sabotage the adoption of a pet. I doubt they are "lying" if she is in a foster home and doing great with that family. If you're so concerned why don't you try doing something to help.

I have a pit bull and a black lab and on the spectrum of what a pit looks like, in my humble opinion, Charlotte looks more like my lab. In fact my previous dog was a terrier-basenji mix and Charlotte looks like him. Charlotte, however, is a one of a kind. I bet a DNA test would have us all shaking our heads!

My friend has a Husky and Charlotte's face looks exactly like his :) I have never commented on Patch before, but it upset me to see a hateful person spreading negativity for no reason. I hope Charlotte finds a loving home!

I love that this post has 55 Facebook likes and is growing! Go Hi-Tor! Go Charlotte!

Perhaps Dog Advocate has another dog in mind. As a regular volunteer there, I have seen many Pit bull mixes at Hi-Tor, but none of them even faintly resembling Charlotte! By the way, Hi-Tor actually has had some of its dogs DNA-tested; I will check tomorrow whether Charlotte is among them. Also, most experts agree that no breed of dog is inherently more vicious than others ─ vicious dogs were trained that way, and can almost always be retrained to be kind again (which I observe happening all the time through work with the staff and/or rigorously trained volunteers). For a real eye-opening read on the topic of Pit bulls, by the way, I heartily recommend surfing to the following web address: http://www.hitor.org/#!truth-about-pit-bulls/c167w

Best piece on "pit bulls" I've read in a while. Very comprehensive. Lots of vintage photos. I printed it out to keep.
Richard Maurer February 22, 2013 at 11:53 PM
FYI, Charlotte has been DNA-tested. She is one half pure-bred Siberian Husky, the other half a mix of many breeds, none of them pit bulls.
Chris February 23, 2013 at 01:09 AM
Charlotte has been in the shelter for one full year as of February 14th. She is a beautiful and energetic dog who needs a home. I can guarantee you that she is 100 percent dog.
Chris February 23, 2013 at 01:11 AM
She was mistakenly listed as a Shiba Inu mix but that was before her DNA testing.
Lynne Gweeny February 23, 2013 at 02:09 AM
She's beautiful! Wish I had the means to take on a dog. :(
