Meet Louie

Louie is a 8lb scruffy senior ((10+ yrs old) Norwich Terrier Chihuahua mix with adorable puppy energy. His tail wags a mile a minute when he gets play time and rubs. He is mostly blind, so it takes him some time to trust new people and new surroundings, but once he maps out a route in your home, his favorite thing will be to run laps around the house! He needs work with potty training, and would do best in a single level home. Once he gets used to a routine, he likes to keep it and will let you know if you are messing it up! He can get confused and scared out of the blue, and will sometimes nip when that happens. But once you get to know him, it is easy to spot the warning signs. He usually just needs to be reassured that he is safe, (and sometimes he's just "hangry"). He isn't comfortable up on the couch (yet), but his 2nd favorite thing to do is curl up on his bed by your feet. Mostly, Louie is just so happy to be alive and loved, and will hop up and down to let you know it. ?
Louie would do best in a home where someone is there most of the time and also patient and experienced with senior dogs and some of their quirks. Also no small kids since Louie sometimes with try and nip if startled.
