Louie was part of the 2011 Laws & Paws training program. He is a hound and German Shepherd mix, estimated to be 10 months old when he joined L&P. We were told that he and his two brothers, Huey and Duey, were abandoned on a farm as puppies. His brothers had already both been adopted when he started with us.
He was a mellow boy from the start and loved to laze around in the grass with his handler during the bonding classes. While the dogs are in the program, they stay in a foster home and Louie had the privilege to stay with King County Sheriff's Office employee Johnny and his two lovely dogs. The four of them had a great time and Louie fit in with the pack. During the six-week program, Louie won first place in the obedience challenge!
Louie's L&P youth handler made this scrapbook page of Louie.
The Saturday after the Laws & Paws training program was over, the foster parents had to bring their dogs back to Homeward Pet so they could be adopted by their forever families. The day Louie was taken back, our very own PAL Development Manager, Laurie, came in with her dog Sasha so they could meet Louie and see if he would be a good fit to take home. Sure enough, Louie and Sasha got along just fine and Louie went home with Laurie that very day!
Today, Louie is a happy, energetic, playful and loving boy who loves to run and play with the other dogs at the dog park. He loves to lay around outside and sniff the air and chase bugs. Here are some pictures of Louie at his new home!
When he's not running around and playing, Louie loves to be lazy :)
