Special Criteria

This shy boy is ready to spread his wings and become a social butterfly! When Louie first arrived at the Sanctuary, he was very shy and didn't know what to think of people. After lots of hard work and patience, the volunteers and caregivers have been able to get him to come out of his shell. He has several friends now who he loves to spend time with, going on car rides and outings. He'll even walk up to people now in the hopes of receiving a hot dog or other tasty treat! While he still hasn't quite figured out why people like to pet him, he's happy to hang out with volunteers and socialize in his own way. He's even gone on a few sleepovers and found that beds and couches are pretty comfortable, even if it means sharing his space with people. He loves his dog friends, and when he's around other dogs his personality blossoms. Louie is a sweet boy who is looking for a patient home that will allow him time to become as confident as he can be. He's ready to take those steps if you'll be there to support him along the way.
