Personality: Louis is a very energetic, strong, playful dog that is waiting for his forever home! He is very enthusiastic and often jumps in excitement. He is still learning his manners but is very smart and already knows to sit, down, and shake. Louis does best with experienced handlers who know how to calm him and redirect him to polite behaviors. Louis also loves to go on long runs, play fetch as long as possible, and even go on hikes to help burn his energy. With his energy, he would benefit from plenty of physical and mental exercise and a family who is comfortable managing a high energy, large dog. A training scholarship has been funded by The Pedigree Foundation
History: Came to us as a stray. Louis has shown discomfort with children and is recommended to an adult household.
Dog/Cat Skills: Louis has participated in a playgroup with female and male dogs, but does best with female dogs. He is very forward, rowdy, and playful. He engages in lots of physical contact play and chase. He does try to mount at times and does not always listen to corrections. He does best with very tolerant, social dogs that can handle his rough and tumble play style and high energy. He can also be tolerant of other rowdy, vocal players. Louis has tried to chase cats while in our care and is not recommended to go into a home with cats.
Leash Skills: Louis is a strong dog, and pulls a lot while walking on a leash. He would benefit from the use of a front clipping harness. It also helps when he gets proper outlets for his energy.
