Meet Louise - Adoption Pending
Meet Louise! Louise’s foster mum describes her as a sweet a girl who loves to cuddle in bed and smother her trusted people with kisses! A typical puppy, she is comically clumsy and loves to be busy and playful. Louise is an energetic girl and enjoys going for long walks in the park, swimming, rolling around in the snow and playing with her toys – the squeaky kind are her fav! After a nice long walk, Louise also enjoys curling up on the couch beside you and getting pets. She especially loves when you stroke her face and will use her paw to hold your hand there.
Louise can be shy at first, especially with men, but once she has had a chance to know and trust you, she is a very happy & playful girl. She would appreciate a family willing to be patient with her while she gets comfortable and one that will work to build her confidence through slow and gentle exposure to new people. Louise would do best in a home with older, respectful kids that understand dog etiquette (12+).
Louise’s ideal home is with a family that can give her the exercise she needs. She loves to play outside and would prefer to have a fenced yard to run in after her walks. She can be shy of new dogs at first, but with proper introductions, she warms up quickly and plays nicely. She would love another well-adjusted dog pal to help show her the ropes. Louise would also do fine with a dog savvy cat, but may chase them when she is in a playful mood.
Louise has the energy of a puppy and currently gets a 30 min walk morning, afternoon and evening, as well as backyard play time. She walks fairly well on leash, walking close to her foster mom, and only pulls if she is excited. She is currently crated when her people go out and settles quickly. She is working on earning free reign of a puppy proofed space, but still may get into things like the garbage or plants. She is almost fully house trained and knows to sit at the back door when she needs to go potty. Her new family should still be prepared for an adjustment period though. Louise seems to be nervous to do her business on a leash when out for walks and will only go in the backyard.
Louise is a quick learner and is working on sit, stay, and lie down. Her recall is good but she can still be stubborn when she is having too much fun playing outside. She does well in the car.
As a condition of the adoption contract, Louise’s new family will be required to:
- Attend a basic obedience class (proof of enrollment required)
- Provide consistent potty breaks throughout the day to ensure her continued success with training.
- Provide plenty of socialization opportunities - both human and dog. It is critically important at this stage!
