Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
There are a few places a 10 year old dog just doesn't belong… behind the wheel of a Mack truck, climbing Everest without oxygen, outer space… Most importantly though, a 10 year old dog does not belong in the shelter. No, Louie should be relaxing in the comfort of a loving home, enjoying the cool breeze of the AC and the affections of his family. Louie is a friendly old man who is easy to handle and leash up for a walk. When meeting other dogs in playgroup, Louie generally kept to himself. He'd like to meet any potential doggy roommates before moving in together to make sure it's a good fit. Ask about Louie today!

"Louie is one of my favorite dogs to walk. He is always happy to see me, and very happy to go out for his walk. He is estimated as 10 years old but still has the spirit of a young dog. And the energy too!
He knows his sit and enjoys his treats which he takes very gently- an easygoing walking companion."- PACC Volunteer

Louie recently spent time in a foster home as part of a study on shelter stress in dogs. Here is what his foster had to say about him:

"Louie seemed to be pretty comfortable around home with us, his foster parents. He did lots of lounging and napping during the day, sometimes right at our feet. He would also follow us around the kitchen sometimes, particularly when there was food involved. If one of us left the house, he usually greeted us when we returned (as long as he was awake). We had local relatives over for dinner one night and he greeted them at the door and was friendly from the beginning. He was not an overly cuddly guy, but he accepted pets all over and seemed to appreciate good scratches in the hard-to-reach places. He was also a good sport for occasional face and paw wipe-downs. He did occasionally get playful to pounce after a ball or play a little tug inside with us, but these kind of higher energy spurts were very short-lived."
