Charlie is modeled on the Shepherd-Collie mix who inspired CharlieDogs.

These plush toys each sport a hangtag that points the way to the featured pet's shelter website and related rescue causes. They remind kids, who remember forever what beloved stuffed animals tell them, that shelter-dog adoption is cool. (I can definitely relate.)

The sale of CharlieDogs raises money for rescue groups and the shelters that found homes for the real-life animals. CharlieDogs' new collection is "Pocket Pitties," designed to support and promote the excellent work of Pit Bull rescue Bruised Not Broken.
