Festus and Louie - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Barktown Rescue, Bardstown, KY.

In September 2011, after searching long and hard, my husband and I found Louie, our Coton de Tulear, on Petfinder. We drove from TN to Missouri to meet him at K9 Rescue and bring him home. He had been rescued from a hoarding house, and his lack of socialization makes him scared of nearly everything - except other animals. So, in September of 2012, we chose to adopt again to give Louie a playmate. We found Festus, our Mini-Schnauzer on Petfinder in Bardstown, KY. They are a cute, but unique pair, and Louie seems grateful for a furry playmate! Festus is full of life and energy and makes us laugh daily. I've seen glimpses of the same energy in Louie, so we are pleased with our decision to adopt again. Thank you Petfinder for bringing us together with our new family members!
