ATTENTION NEW YORK: Meet Louie from @beastlyrescue! This cutie has had bad luck, let's change that! 4 years ago, he was pulled by Beastly Rescue from the city shelter, and adopted to a man who later moved out of state, leaving Louie with his aging father. After a while, under-exercised, Louie became too much for pops to handle, and Beastly Rescue was asked if they could take him back. After months of searching, the rescue finally found an awesome foster for Louie, thanks to @fosterdogsnyc. Everything was great until the foster had to move and couldn’t take Louie either. He pleaded and tried everything he could, but finding buildings that accept pits in NYC is very difficult. At 5 years old, Louie has left his curious puppy stage behind him. He doesn't chew things, he's fully housebroken and is used to being left at home while his foster is at work. He adores children (he's lived with a 4-year-old before) and is amazing with all people. He even handles large crowds very well! Louie needs exercise and a fenced-in yard, someone active would be best! Behind closed doors Louie loves to chill, but years of living off the beaten path has caused Lou to lack some social graces. For instance, he gets super amped up on the lead when he sees other dogs. We don't believe Louie to be dog-aggressive (he once temporarily shared his home with an older female Boxer) but because it's an area which needs some work, we prefer he be the only animal at home, at least to begin with. Unfortunately he is not a fan of cats and other small critters. Louie is a funny guy, outgoing, and he loves to snuggle. He is a bit of a snorer when he sleeps and loves to sleep next to his people (or on them!). Louie will « talk » to you if he wants something (attention, potty, walk, food). At 75 pounds, he needs a strong and experienced person to be his human. Louie is currently in a kennel in NW New Jersey and is available for foster or adoption within a 4 hour drive from NYC. Let’s get him out! To meet Louie please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.beastlyrescue.org for more info. A special thanks to @sophiegamand for bringing Louie to our attention and for the photos!
