Louie - Adopted


Press Release - May 5, 2017

Handsome Louie has found his forever home!

Little man Louie has left BUTTONNOSES Foster Program with his new parents who are showering him with their endless love and affection.


Meet 'Louie'

Louie (Lou) will LOVE to cuddle with you while you're relaxing on the couch and especially at bedtime. He is very affectionate and gentle and will bond to you quite easily.

Lou is house trained but won't give you much warning if he needs to go out. Instead, he runs to the bathtub to do his business - if you adopt this little pup try keeping the bathroom door shut so you can hear when he needs to go out.

He was rescued from a situation where he did not have an opportunity to socialize much. He is very puppy-like and cuddly, but also a little territorial of his humans. If you have another dog, Lou will need some time to warm up to them. He may snap, but never to actually bite the other dog - just to say, "hey, give me some space!"

Lou is very playful and always has a toy in his mouth. He will even carry his toys for you to and from the park (but make sure to get him a tiny ball that he can pick up!)

We don't know why, but Lou LOVES basketballs. So if you have one get ready for a lot of one-on-one with this guy!

Lou needs a loving home where he will get lots of attention and won't be left alone for long periods of time. He doesn't like crates and will get very anxious if left in one. If you must leave him alone for a while, let him roam the house and set up pee pads.
