Louie came to us from the Cleveland city kennel with a severely fractured left front leg. After consulting with our vet, we made the tough decision that amputating would be the best option for him. Thankfully, he is one tough little dude, and made it through surgery and recovery without any issues, and is now happy, healthy, bouncy, and ready to find his forever family!
Here's what his foster family has to say about him; "Louie is 5lbs of perfect! He loves sitting with his head on your lap and could cuddle all day and night. He gets along great with my three dogs, and respects boundaries well. He is very friendly with people, but is still a little hesitant when getting picked up. He doesn't bite and has never been aggressive, just cowers to the ground or moves away. He's working on, (and is close to perfecting!), his "sit." He takes treats nicely, and shares toys well. Outside is a bit difficult for him because of the chillier weather and wind. When he first came to our house he would go outside, sunbathe, use the bathroom, and even explore a bit. Now that it's Fall, he isn't totally into the idea. We have recently switched over to puppy pads inside, and it's a leaning experience for him but he's trying. He is great when crated and does well inside it until you get home to let him out. (Then he'll bark and cry with excitement!) He's never chewed anything in the house, and we've left him alone out of his crate for short periods of time without incident. He does need to work on leash manners. He's just the sweetest little boy and loves anyone that pays attention to him!"
Louie is approx. 1 year old, weighs 5lbs, and is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, heartworm negative, and on monthly flea/tick/heartworm preventative.
Louie currently lives with other small dogs, and loves playing with them! He does well alone as well though, so it's not necessary that he have another dog for company in his forever home. He has never been around cats, but we can test him with them if needed. (I suspect he will playfully chase them!) A securely fenced in yard is preferred.
Because of his small size, and because he's already suffered a severe injury, we will not place Louie in a home with young children or large dogs.
Louie's adoption fee is $350.
