Meet Louis, a Rescue Puggle With Lots of Love

On your left is the one and only Louis, a 24-pound male Puggle we rescued from a local animal shelter. He was previously adopted, but his new owner had trouble with Louis scaling a four-foot cyclone fence, so anyone who adopts Louis should have either: a) a five foot or privacy fence; b) a tie-out; or c) lots of patience in training him not to climb the fence.

Louis is a younger dog, probably just over a year in age, and he has the higher energy level typical of Puggles, though he is not overly excitable. Louis gets along well with our other dogs, especially our younger Puggles, and he loves to run around the yard and chase anything that catches his attention. Louis is very affectionate, and he seems to crave being hugged and petted, suggesting that these were somewhat lacking in his previous home. When we first got home he ran and played for an hour with the other Puggles, but as soon as I started rubbing his chest, he rolled right over on his back and was mesmerized by the affection.

I just started working with Louis on training, and it appears that he has had little to date, so his new owners will need to be patient as Louis gets accustomed to a leash. Louis is completely housebroken, usually chews only dog-appropriate items, loves children, and is a perfect dog in many ways (save his love of exploring beyond fences shorter than four feet).
