Adoptable Dog of the Week- Louie
He might be tiny, but his personality sure is big! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Louie De Palma, or Louie for short, a 4 years old Brussels Griffon and Shih-Tzu mix from Seattle, Washington. This adorable little doggo is neutered, up to date on his shots, housetrained, and good with other dogs. He will need an experienced adopter.
If you tend to fall head over heels for small and sassy pooches, then Louie is your guy. This handsome fella weighs only 10 lbs, but it doesn’t stop him from being very independent. He’s not a clingy velcro pup and would love an owner who respects that and understands that Louie likes affection to be on his terms.
Louie is housebroken and crate trained -he actually loves spending time in his crate and sees it as his little safe zone. He also has his own collection of toys, 16 and counting, and would love to have a pawrent that would let him acquire a few more plushies. It’s not hoarding if you really need all of your toys, right? In addition to his prized possessions, Louie loves walks and cuddles- preferably with a lady owner!
When it comes to his ideal family, Louie has no objections to sharing his new home with a canine friend, as long as your dog is not bossy or too big to play nicely with him. He doesn’t like cats and kids, though, so he needs an adult-only home and a calm environment and routine to settle into.
Louie was a last hour save from a very overcrowded shelter, and his rough past makes it hard for him to feel safe and secure in a new environment. That’s why this petite pooch needs an experienced adopter, that will go slow with him and understand his world has been turned upside down. If you think you’re the kind of person that would make a perfect companion for Louie, contact 6dogrees Rescue for more information.
