LOUIE - #20766 - #Manhattan - Rescue Only
TO BE DESTROYED 02/20/18 **NEW HOPE RESCUE ONLY** "CAN I JUST HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE WITH A FAMILY THAT TRULY CARES ABOUT ME AND WANTS WHAT'S BEST FOR ME?" :
Louie's a big #handsome guy who was given to his family as a gift when he was just three weeks old, much too young to be taken away from his mother. But that's the least of #Louie's problems right now. He's been dumped at the local kill shelter because him and the other dog in the house didn't see eye to eye (so he will need a meet & greet and slow intro's - Lets insure Louie's success at his next destination). We won't blame Louie's owner for this because some people don't really know how to train a dog and just want to play it safe. Only problem with that is this isn't safe for #Louie. He's in a high kill shelter and very much in danger of losing his life. He needs an EXPERIENCED and CARING ADOPTER or FOSTER ASAP as well as a NEW HOPE RESCUEto help PULL him to SAFETY. .
Louie's playful, kid friendly, tolerant of handling for the shelter staff, is fine with meeting new people on the street, doesn't mind baths and grooming and he's very housetrained. He just needs a second chance in a patient and savvy home where he can get the attention and training he needs. Louie is neutered and ready to go to a good home so don't procrastinate.
Time is not on his side.
