Puppy Love / Love Cats Pet Rescue Logo


Hi!  I'm Louie!  I'm proud to be a pretty unique dog, as I'm part Golden Retriever / Basset Hound, which means great big heart in a low-rider body and only 42 lbs.  My rescuer says I'm quite a character because I can be pretty playful, but I like to chill, too.  Before I was rescued, I went on a little adventure and was lost for a while before I was picked up by an animal control officer.  I was covered in mattes and burrs so badly (as you can probably tell from the pics) that I had to be shaved.  Ahhhhhh!  It felt great to be free from that painful mess.  Anyway, I really want to find my Forever Family!  I love people and other dogs, I love going for walks, I love belly rubs, I love treats and would work really hard at training for them just to make you proud!  I'm really happy and would cheer you up if you are ever blue.  And we can meet lots of new people together because they can't help but stop to comment on how cute and unique I am.  We would have soooooo much fun together!!  Did I tell you I'm a snuggler?!  I love you already, so COME AND GET ME!!!

If you are interested in adopting Louie, please complete an application.  If you want to enjoy the companionship of a dog or cat but not yet ready for the long-term commitment of adopting, perhaps fostering is more your speed. Please read our foster FAQ if you are interested in being a foster parent or contact foster@puppylove-lovecats.org.


All of our Captivating Canines are spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested, and up-to-date on vaccines per their age.
