LOUIE IS A COURTESY POST LOCATED IN PHILADELPHIA, PA.

Louie is a BIG lover. He loves his people and always wants to cuddle and snuggle his way into you. He is almost 2 years old and loves to nap all day after a nice walk in the morning and the occasional zoomies. He is a big boy and very smart - he has bells he jingles to go outside for potty, knows to wait for his food until you say its ok, and just wants to hang out with his people all day.

Likes: Naps, tennis balls, ropes, food.

Dislikes: Dense urban areas. He is protective over his people so strangers can be scary and cause reactivity. A rural area with few strangers would make Louie very happy.

Personality: Laid back and loving.

Temperament: With his people he is calm, and mostly sleepy. In the city streets he can be ON more and alert.

Energy level: Naps most of the day with has spurts of energy. He likes his morning walk and a few tug-of wars on a rope.

Favorite activities: Snuggling!

Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?: He has previously lived with kids and dogs but does not currently.  Being the only dog would be best for Louie. He is very large so small kids might not be good. He doesn’t know how big he is and could knock kids over.

Not good with: Strangers

Housetrained: Yes!

Crate trained: Yes!

Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? Louie doesn't currently have a yard, but if he had one a fenced yard would be best.

Walks well on a leash? He gets better and better every day. He can pull but it’s not too persistent.

Challenges: Stranger danger and reactivity towards people who spook him.

Any Medical issues? He is on daily Fluoxetine.

What would be the best kind of home? A suburban or rural home with older kids and no other pets would be best. No kids and no pets would also work, because he wants all the attention.  If you're looking for your one and only, Louie is your boy!
