From Foster Mom:

At first glance his size might intimidate you, but all he really wants is a hug and a kiss. That’s our big boy, Good Dog Carl. According to the Shelter, he’s approximately 10 years old, but this has not been confirmed yet. He is a gentle giant who loves to play and run around. At first I did not like his name, but after doing some research I realized that he was named after the main character from the children’s books written by Alexandra Day which now seems very fitting. Overall, Carl is very healthy and has a strong immune system. He even managed to avoid developing kennel cough during his stay at the shelter.

On January 10th I received an urgent call from the Weldon Animal Shelter about an older dog they had recently received. According to the Shelter, Carl was surrendered by his owner’s family members,(a 90 year old woman) who suggested euthanasia due to his age and alleged aggression. This is about the time that I received a call from the Shelter who did not agree with the owner’s assessment. I told the Shelter staff that I would discuss the situation over with the Marley’s Mutts Team and I immediately called Amanda Brooks who gave me the green light to assess the situation further. I arrived at the Shelter that same afternoon and after spending a few minutes with Carl I told the Shelter that I would be taking him home. They were unbelievably happy. After a couple hugs and a sincere thanks to Marley’s Mutts team for saving their friend, Good Dog Carl, I took the loveable bundle of joy home. To this day, Carl has shown no signs of aggression to people, other dogs, cat, or small animals. He is a big loveable teddy bear who is just looking for his forever home.
Shelter staff thought Carl is a Rottweiler and German Sheperd mix but I think he is a Rottweiler and Burmese Mountain Dog mix.
