How Louie could have been a stray dog is a true mystery. We rescued Louie from the shelter as a stray, and we knew instantly that whoever let this sweetheart get away lost the dog-deal of a lifetime. Sweetness? Louie’s got it in spades. Loves everyone and dogs, too? That’s our boy, Louie.
Alert, smart, and adaptable, Louie must have learned some awesome manners out on the streets. He’s good with other dogs, is housebroken, and an expert cuddle buddy. He may be shy at first—but give him a treat, and you’re his bestie for life. A little on the timid side sometimes, Louie needs to know he is loved, which may be why he likes to follow his foster parents everywhere they go and is thrilled to sit right next to them given the chance. He’s also a great leash walker!
Not a yappy barker, Louie is a quiet pup unless he’s got a favorite squeaky toy. And his idea of exercise is a sudden burst of energy, running around and around for 5 minutes, and then, well, that’s it. His fosters say it best: Louie is as sweet as the day is long and a wonderful, loving little dog.
Louie is a 10 pound neutered male Chihuahua mix, about 3 yrs old, housetrained, fully vetted, and up to date on all vaccinations. And he really is just about the perfect dog.
