Charles the Monarch is the famous Labradoodle who hails from Norfolk, Virginia and occasionally creates a stir when in public.
Charles’s is adorable, Charles garners a second look when walking down the street and Charles resembles a lion. Owned by the Painter family, Charles is the mascot and probably considers himself part owner of the family garden center.
A few years ago Charles created quite a community stir when a bevy of 911 calls reported a lion on the loose. It was just Charles roaming around the garden center.
Since his national debut, Charles has garnered quite a following on his facebook page with 57,736 likes. Charles is also popular on Pinterest though he must share the limelight with Prince Charles too. I doubt Prince Charles would mind.
