Hi there! My name is Louie and I’m pretty much the greatest! My foster mom says I’m loving, brave, and adventurous - I’ve even figured out how to climb very steep old stairs and get back down all on my own! Mostly I figured it out cus I really love the little boys who live here and just wanted to be with them when they went upstairs! Now that I’ve figured that out, I love going up and down the stairs to show off, or sometimes for no reason at all, it’s great entertainment!
I’ve been here a few days and had so many new experiences and I couldn’t be more excited! We took a ferry ride and a several car rides. I didn’t mind that car at all, loaded right up and didn’t even complain once for the whole ride! I especially loved sticking my head out the window. My big floppy freckled ears flew right up into the air! It was the craziest thing, you should have seen it!
We took that car to go pick up the little boys at school and even though I was a little overwhelmed by all the activity I was really happy to be there, all the kids at the school loved me and asked to pet me and begged their parents to let them bring me home. I hope I find a home with kids, and I’d be okay with cats even. They have cats at my foster house that I’d love to cuddle with, but they aren’t interested – even when I try to make myself very, very, small, but that’s okay. I’m all about respecting space, even the space of that grumpy resident dog who claims all the furniture. (but I’ll win em over eventually, I just know it!)
I love playing and jumping around like a feisty lil goat with these big strong legs I’ve got, especially right after a bath. My foster mom says I’m a bit of a spazz, whatever that is. I really don’t love taking a bath, but will put up with it if you promise to brush me after. I love being brushed!
Even though I’m already a real big house-trained boy, don’t be confused! I’m still a pup at heart. I love playing with toys and can decimate a stuffy faster than anyone you’ve met! Sometimes I’m curious about what it would be like to chew on other things in the house, but when my foster mom says no no, I make sure to listen and I stop straight away. Please, make sure to give me lots of good chew toys, and communicate with me so I don’t get in trouble. I don’t like being in trouble, so I do my best listen to redirection real good. I’m pretty sure if we do lots of training, I’d work hard to pick it up real quick.
My foster mom asked me to dream of the perfect home. After a lot of dreaming, I’ve decided my ideal home would be a family with a back yard with a big fence so I don’t forget where the yard ends and get lost or hurt. I’d love to have a brother or sister to play with, and some kids would be great too. I want to live with people that love big fuzzy hugs because I give amazing big fuzzy hugs. Lastly, a giant dog bed surrounded by a 24 hour buffet, filled with steaks and toys and rainbows, and a full time hired ball thrower at my disposal/back door opener would be nice. My foster mom said that last bit might be a lil unrealistic… but this is MY dream, so it stays. Louie
is currently being fostered in Vancouver, WA.
