Meet Louie! Louie is a sweet boy who just wants to make you happy. He loves snuggling and giving kisses to his human friends. His favorite thing to do is rest his head on anything at nose level, as if his head is just soooo heavy. He's a silly boy who sometimes doesn't know his own size! In his journey to get closer to you, he may bump his head on a coffee table, your leg, step on your toes or attempt to squeeze through a place that simply won't fit him. He loves to be close to his friends but will always be respectful if you want some alone time. He is crate trained and genuinely enjoys nap time in his crate.

While Louie loves a good cuddle, he also loves a good run! This fast boy loves his zoomies and also enjoys some energetic playtime. He's a big fan of two-ball fetch and loves jumping in the air to catch his target! While Louie loves his toys he's also very respectful of items that aren't his and shows no interest in chewing on anything that isn't his toy.

Louie is a sweet boy and a great listener. He is very loyal to his pack and loves to hang out, especially when it means receiving pets and scratches! Louie would do well with a family of adults who wouldn't mind playing with him and giving him lots of love. Come and meet this lovable buddy!
Come meet your new best friend
