Meet Louis!
Louis is just under 2 years old. This 30 lb Sheltie Aussie/bc mix is looking for a special home. Louis loves his people! He is house trained and crate trained but also not destructive when left loose in the house. Louis LOVES his ball and tug toys and squeaky toys and just about any new toy you give him. Playing ball is a great way for Louis to get exercise. It took a little bit of time, but Louis is doing great with canine foster siblings and can now play with them in the yard. Louis loves to spend the end of the day playing with his toys and hanging out with his people.
Louis spent his early days in a hoarding home with 150 other dogs. During that time, he learned he had to fight for everything he got. Louis needs a patient person to help him acclimate to his new surroundings Louis requires a fenced yard. would do great in a home where his people can throw his ball or run with him. Though Louis has successfully lived with children, we feel he would do best in an adult home. Louis's new family will need to continue to build his confidence in new situations, while providing a safe stable home for him. Lou is a snuggley, playful, active happy boy once he settles in so any effort on his behalf is well worth it.
