Charlie + Mango @charlieandmango.chs
Owner Danielle M. said: Charlie is 4 and Mango is 2. We live in Mount Pleasant!
Charlie’s favorite things are rolling in the sand at the beach, watching dogs on Animal Planet, people (she cries whenever she meets someone new), the farmers market because she likes to get all the scraps that people drop, and walks along Riverfront Park downtown.
Mango’s favorite things are chasing balls in the ocean at Sullivan’s island, going to the “buffet” section at Wolfgang Bakery and getting 1 of every different treat, and fresh watermelon from the farmers market.
Owner Nic P. said: Max is a 7 year-old yellow lab. We live on Johns Island but you can routinely find us at the beach on Kiawah, hitting balls on the driving range at the Muni ( he’s still waiting for the Augusta National invite), paddle boarding the Kiawah River or on the boat in the Charleston harbor.
Most people know Max from our almost daily walks around Charleston stopping at restaurants for chips and queso, bacon or grilled chicken. People ask all the time why Max wears sunglasses and the answer is very simple. It makes people smile.
I think Max knows that he is making people’s days better and loves it. As for #Charlestonmascot, who better to represent our beautiful city than Max walking around making people feel good?
Owner Katie P. said: Teddy is 8 years young. We live on James Island. He landed the cover of Charleston magazine due to his good looks of course.
A writer for “Charleston Magazine” reached out as she was writing a guide for the October issue of all things dogs for the Lowcountry. They wanted to feature dogs who were Instagram famous and Teddy was on the top of their list.
The cover photo was taken in our neighborhood along the Stono River. I took the photo during a sunset stroll with our dogs and they liked it so much they asked for permission to use it on the cover.
Owner Cathy J. said: Frederick is 2 1/2 years old & born in TN 4-8-19. He’s an English Springer Spaniel. His favorite toy is a recycled milk jug from Costco. (Frederick made Milk Jug Monday famous, sort of) He likes to eat weeds in his neighbor’s front yard, play with his bestie Bentley, a 2 1/2 year old cavachon. Lives West Ashley. Loves to browse shops in South Windermere Center, especially Dolittles, but also Phillips Shoes & Half Moon Outfitters.
He likes to go to the beach by boat & stroll around Rockville. He’s a playful pup. Oh, and he loves to strike a pose for the camera. All day. Every day. And his nub of a tail is called his wagglestick (hence Wagglestick Wednesdays). His IG friends named him the King of Floof.
Owner Sam T. said: Hudson is 3. We live in North Charleston. He loves to play fetch, go swimming at the beach, walks around downtown, and get all the attention from strangers.
Owner Vivian H. said: Percy is a 5-year-old Yorkie who is loving his life here in Charleston! He just recently got his own backyard in a neighborhood in West Ashley perfect for sunbathing and barking at the UPS man.
When he’s not hanging out with his friends from the Charleston Puppy Playtime group, he loves biking around downtown, spending time on the boat at the CHS Harbor Marina, or shopping on King. Some of his favorite shops are Woof Gang, Sephora, and Clerk’s Coffee Co (ps: it’s dog friendly!).
Owner Karen S. said: Brooks is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. She will be turning 2 at the end of January! We currently live in West Ashley. She enjoys going to Folly beach, the Wannamaker dog park (really any park that she can play fetch in!), and hanging out at local restaurants! She loves being in Charleston because we can take her to so many places!
Owner Hailey S. said: - His name is Winston (Winnie for short). He’s a year and a half old Cavalier King Charles spaniel. He lives in Mount Pleasant. His favorite things to do in Charleston are going to Hairy Winston, chasing birds at the beach, pup cups from Metto Coffee and catching the sunset at Pitt Street Bridge! He’s also a BIG nap guy.
Owner Mikayla M. said: Whiskey is a one-year-old red golden retriever! He lives in Moncks Corner, SC! He loves to go boating and spend his time swimming at the beaches! He loves exploring all of Charleston!
Owner said: Artemis will be 1 on Veterans Day, 11/11/2021. She is a female blue Merle Australian Shepherd. We live in Goose Creek, SC. Her name comes from the Greek goddess of the night and hunt. Artemis loves playing with her big brother, Atlas, doing agility, swimming, taking classes at the Charleston training dog club and doing tricks! Artemis has several trick titles, including her advanced trick dog title. We also have 100k followers on TikTok!
Samoa + Alaska @samoalaska_aussies
Owner Chynna M. said: We first lived on James island but have recently moved to our new home in Summerville. Samoa is a 3-year-old, adopted, Australian Shepherd/Australian Cattle Dog mix. He loves going to the beach, patio pupping, and meeting new friends. He loves all people - old and young and all animals from horses to ferrets. Samoa is in training to become a therapy dog, so starting next year he will be visiting local hospitals to bring smiles to everyone. He is gentle and loving and, all around, a very good boy.
Alaska is a 1-year-old Australian Shepherd who loves the beach and working hard for her next meal. Alaska loves dog sport training, ball, frisbee, swimming, and obedience training. She is very wary of strangers so no pets, please! But for those she’s welcomed into her pack, she’s a sweet snuggler who gives a ton of kisses.
Both dogs have their Novice Trick Dog titles from Do More With Your Dog and they are working towards earning all the trick titles that they can! Some of their favorite places to go are Kiawah beach, Hollywood Feed, Charleston Dog Training Club, Wag N Splash Swim, Downtown Charleston, Wannamaker Splash Pad, Lowe’s, and Viscious Biscuit.
