According to his foster mom Louie is a special little boy who had a rough start in life and needs someone with love and patience to continue to guide him in life and help make him into the confident, happy boy he is meant to be. Everyday he comes out of his shell more. Louie is very smart guy and can be quite funny. He craves a routine and will do best in a quiet, stable environment.
Louie walks nicely on leash, is crate trained, housebroken, and learning to use wee wee pads. Louie is shy with strangers and should be allowed to interact at his own pace. He likes dogs that are his size or smaller. Due to his shy nature, no children.
Louie may have been abused in his past and as such he needs to be handled carefully. When Louie has had enough love he will let you know by offering a warning growl and that is the cue to leave him alone. Due to his dislike or bathing/grooming it i recommended that you allow a professional to handle it.
The perfect forever home for Louie is one that has experience with fearful dogs and has the patience and know how to handle his fears.
