23ABC's Pet of the Week, Charlie, is a black Chihuahua mix.

Charlie is about six-years-old. He is a graduate of Marley’s Mutt’s Pawsitive Change Program, a progressive and intensive rehabilitation program that matches their rescues with inmates inside California state prisons. 

Thanks to the Pawsitive Change Program, Charlie is now house-trained, kennel-trained and leash-trained. He can even do tricks, has a mild-temperament and is great with children. However, Marley's Mutt's says he gets a bit anxious around young children. He would be a great fit for a family with children 10-years-old or older. 


If you would like more information about Charlie or any of the pets featured on 23ABC’s Pet of the Week, please contact Marley’s Mutts at 661-556-7178 or send them an email to You can also visit their website or their Facebook page.
