Charles's history is both muddled and sadly telling. He was picked up by Animal Control while wandering aimlessly through town. He was so timid that he wouldn't let the shelter volunteers walk him as they did all the other dogs. When they would approach, he'd often urinate and defecate on himself, quaking in fear. He was almost certainly abused in his former home.
But he's recovering nicely and is proving to be a very friendly McNab Shepherd (like Ranger, also seen in this gallery), who is hyper-protective of his surroundings and who has a special fondness for chasing birds.
