Local Celebrity Dog, Charles the Monarch, Visits Camp Horizon

A surprise visit from Charles the Monarch, also known as the infamous “Lion Dog”, thrilled camp goers from Camp Horizon, The Up Center’s summer camp for children and young adults with disabilities on June 27th. Campers lined up to see the playful pooch and take pictures with this local-turned-national celebrity.

Charles, a labrodoodle based in Norfolk, rise to fame began when he was spotted in Norfolk by an on looker who thought he was a lion.  This story quickly went national and the rest was history. Today, this fun-loving pooch travels to different charities to bring smiles all over.
