Lou Lou is a 2-year-old 12-lb. little lady, who is thinking about what she'd like to be in the future. Possessing so many talents, she has a choice of doggy 'careers' ahead of her. With her compact, athletic build and lots of energy, she jumps effortlessly over obstacles and would make an awesome agility dog. (In addition, she's very teachable and already knows sit and lie down.) Lou Lou is also mulling over a future as a therapy dog because she is exceptionally patient and eager to please. She's quite content to let others take a leadership role. You should see how nicely she gets along with her 3-year-old human foster brother and her four canine foster siblings (giving a slight preference to the boys). She would love to live in a home with at least one other playful dog. Finally, Lou Lou has such a strong desire to be with people that she could concentrate on a career as a constant companion to someone who is home most of the time and wants an active canine buddy. In fact, she really doesn't like to be outside without her person (she will bark heartily to let you know her displeasure) and would love to go walking on leash with you to take care of her exercise and potty needs. In addition, she is not a fan of the crate, but she is trying to learn to tolerate it without complaint and to keep it clean. She's more comfortable there when she has a fellow canine crated next to her. Overall, she's happier being loose in the house and free to snuggle with her person on the couch and get a belly rub, and she'll appreciate your monitoring her activities, as she is still learning about the luxuries of living in a home, such as pottying outside (though she's doing well when watched consistently). No matter what tomorrow holds in store for Lou Lou, she's certain of one thing--as long as it includes a loving forever home, she's going to be one happy pup!
