Louis may be a senior citizen, but this sweet, gentle boy is still an explorer! He can be busy sniffing and exploring his house with his goofy grin, and then he's especially interested in finding his human companions, especially when he's ready to relax. If you're sitting on the couch, he'll plop down next to you, or he's quite happy to nap at your feet.

He just loves feeling close to his people, hoping to be petted and picked up for a snuggle. So affectionate, he'll give gentle licks in return for those cuddles. Aging has taken away his hearing and vision, but his sniffing still makes him that skilled explorer. He even loves meandering on the grass outside but is not much or an "go for a walk on leash" kind of dog. He will need an adopter who can help manage his potty breaks every few hours.

This friendly, loving, well-mannered boy wants nothing more than a safe, comfy home that he can safely explore. Come give him a cuddle and he'll want to explore yours!
