Charlie; I first met Charlie Via the Tauranga SPCA. He had been left tied to a rubbish bin underneath the Wiaroa bridge. Sandy as he was known to the SPCA and general public after an article was written about him in the BOP times was fear conditioned and refusing to eat.

Charlie was retrained and rehoused successfully on behalf of the SPCA, although his exact age was not known this picture was taken after what became a long contented life.
