It was one of those days in rescue that you just hate. A day when the surrendering family is doing the right thing, but it still hurts so much.
No doubt about it: Louie Armstrong was loved beyond measure. Louie came with two couch beds, toys, and enough “Louie stuff” to fill the back of my SUV. It was obvious that Louie wanted for nothing, but a baby was born early and created a whole other set of circumstances.
Louie has his own medical needs. He needs a little “wrinkle remover” because if he has eyes, it’s hard to see them.
He’s had entropion surgery on both eyes, but those wrinkles are something else. He has the typical skin allergies that plague some Bulldogs when the weather changes and a few hot spots that he likes to lick.
Louie is a dream Bulldog. He likes everyone and here at the garden center, everyone who saw him wanted to pet him. Finally, he just fell over from exhaustion because of all the attention.
Louie’s dad left in tears. He gave Louie several hugs and said, “I will always remember you and always love you, Louie.” For Louie, it was all about the timing… a time for Louie to find a family who can focus on him and his medical needs.
Louie is 2 years old, loves to eat, enjoys snacks, plays with toys and is potty trained. He’ll soon be ready to be adopted by a furever family, and he’ll bring his carload of stuff!
