We’d like to reintroduce Louie! Louie changed foster homes a while back and we’ve discovered that there is a cute, sweet, loving little dude beneath his gremlin facade. Louie has learned over the years what he desires and he communicates it very clearly. We don’t know his entire past but his future is looking bright, now that we understand what he needs. After having next to nothing for so long, Louie has learned to cherish the good things in life so much that he won’t let anyone (human or animal) near them. Although inconvenient, this endearing behavior is totally manageable and we will clue you in if he chooses you to be his person. Louie enjoys pets, snuggles and cuddling in your lap; he is quite affectionate. The way to his heart is through walks and car rides; he can’t get enough! He is always ready to go and will show you with his exuberant jumping and dancing. Louie is house trained, prefers to sleep in his dog bed at night and knows several party tricks.
On a serious note, Louie is an adorable little dog and very fun and easy to live with. He resource guards so he needs to find a home with an adult or adults who understand this behavior and react appropriately (again, don’t fret, we’ll teach you). Louie’s new owner will need to be his advocate, by protecting him from things he does not love, like children and strangers (this is also super easy, you don’t need professional body guard training, promise). Louie communicates very clearly so it won’t be a surprise as to what he needs.
Louie has lived with cats and multiple dogs while in foster care. He co-exists with everyone and will play on occasion. Louie would be fine as an only dog. However, he’d also be fine with small dogs or calm, large dogs. He just doesn’t have an appreciation for large, exuberant, dogs who may push him around or step on him.
If you feel that you have what it takes to love this personable little dude, please reach out.
