If a gentle giant is on your want list, look no further because Louie is your guy! Louie is a Labrador and Great Pyrenees mix, estimated at 1 ½ years old and 107 pounds. He’s got the shiniest black coat and just bits of white on his chest and feet. He was found roaming in a residential area and after an unsuccessful and extensive search for his owners, his rescuers have decided to help him find a new forever family.
Louie is a very sweet, loving and smart guy. He knows how to sit and starting to respond to his newly given name. He loves exploring outside and enjoys his new toys. He’s still pretty young, but he has a laid back personality. He would be the ideal pup for a family willing to play a bit, give him lots of attention and then hang out on the patio in the evening. He’s not overly active, but does like to get out and play a few times during the day with the other dogs in the family. He loves to be loved and would allow anyone to hug on him all day long. He’s a well-mannered dog; just a big sweetie. It’s quite possible he’s the biggest lap dog we’ve ever known.
This handsome boy is very friendly to everyone he meets and will give kisses for belly rubs. He is now in a foster home with 2 small dogs and 2 cats and he is getting along with everyone just perfectly. In fact, he can share a bowl of kibble with his 2 doggy buddies without any disagreement. Tug of war is his favorite activity to play with the other dogs and the humans. Although he could win every match, he prefers playing the game to winning every time. Despite his size and youth, he really is super gentle and affectionate.
He loves the company of the other dogs he currently lives with and we feel he'd be happiest with another dog that is playful and medium to large in size. He's playful, so toys, dog parks and long walks would make him a happy boy. He doesn’t live with kids in his foster home, but has met several because he lives across the street from an elementary school. He’s proven that he is nice to everyone, so we think that as long as his size doesn’t intimidate a little one, he’d enjoy their boisterous spirits and active ways.
Louie has just recently joined his foster family, so he is working on a few training pieces, such as walking properly on his leash and making sure all of his tinkles are outdoors. He’s very food motivated, so this has been helpful in training him quickly. Louie is ready to fill the space in your heart and on your kitchen floor, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if he sounds like your perfect companion.
