“She used to run away, now she’s running for Mayor” -Hank, age 3


THE SCOOP: Charlie was found in a “free puppies” box twelve years ago. She was covered in fleas and had a passion for chewing up leather shoes and lace bras. It was love at first bite. 

TOP ISSUES: She knows her neighbors, runs free, sleeps well, swims naked, and wakes up happy.  She’d like that for everyone.

UNIQUE QUALITIES:  This may be her first time running for Mayor, but Charlie has quite literally been running all her life. Her passion for running has gotten her into trouble on numerous occasions. But mostly, it’s been worth it.
