Meet Aerie’s Top Model…Charlie!

Meet Aerie’s Top Model…Charlie!

We had the opportunity to sit down with Charlie, the pup who made quite the splash breaking into the spotlight this holiday season. Dana S., Aerie’s Senior Director of Marketing and proud owner of her new model-in-training, rescued Charlie from Animal Friends, a shelter in Pittsburgh. Her new best friend was an immediate hit with our team, as he accompanied her to the holiday photoshoot. One thing led to another, and Charlie just might be the next top model. Read on below for an exclusive interview!

Meet Aerie's Top Model...Charlie!

Meet Charlie!

Hi, Charlie! Thanks for taking some time to sit with us! Can you tell us a little bit about your background? 

I spent the first two years of my life in animal shelters. I was well cared for but pretty scared and timid…until my new mom came in!  We connected right away. It took a bit to get used to my new place, especially the stairs, but now I love my comfy bed and big yard… it’s home!

 Aw! What’s your favorite sweet treat?

Honestly, I can’t get enough Beggin’ Strips…it’s my indulgence. But I keep it balanced with healthy snacks like carrots.

Smart! With a rising star like you. It’s important to focus on nutrition. Do you have a favorite getaway spot?

Grandma and Grandpa have a rockin’ cabin in the mountains. I love to bird watch and run around in the woods.

Sounds great! So, what was your favorite part of the photoshoot?

Hanging out with all the models, of course! All that attention and love from such pretty ladies. So many ear-rubs and walks and thanks to the caterers for all the secret treats they gave me.  Shhhh!

Meet Aerie's Top Model...Charlie!

Charlie making friends and scoring a few ear rubs on set!

You lucky, dog you! What are your plans for the Holidays? 

This is my second holiday with my family and I love to curl up in front of the fireplace while everyone hangs out.

Do you have a special toy on your Holiday wishlist? 

I love to destroy toys so I really only have them for one day. My favorite toy right now is a penguin. But he won’t make it to New Year’s. ;) I love anything that makes noise.

Meet Aerie's Top Model...Charlie!

Ready for his close-up.

 What’s your favorite Holiday song?

My mom plays them all but I love Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You!”


You seem very trendy. What’s your favorite, on-trend Holiday accessory? 

My red and green bow tie. No doubt.

Meet Aerie's Top Model...Charlie!

Looking fashionable in his bow tie after a good, but long day at work!

How handsome! How did you feel when you saw your picture up in Times Square? 

Like a rockstar! And so humbled. I realized how far I have come and how many people have helped me get to where I am. From my pals at Animal Friends in Pittsburgh to my new mom and my forever home… I know I am the luckiest dog in the world.

Thank you so much so much Charlie! We hope to see you around the office again soon!

xo,

Aerie
