Louie Lanakila Zamperini
It is rare for us to meet a pup who has gone through obvious pain and suffering at the hands of humans, but remains trusting and happy to be around people. Meet one such pup, Louie Lanakila Zamperini KAWS, a handsome whippety guy looking for his forever home. Louie was found emaciated with a home neuter and rubberband tail dock, a foreign object forced down his ear, and the tip of his tongue mutilated. Despite all of this mistreatment, Louie is a joyful 1.5 year old fella who loves other dogs of all sizes and is respectful of cats. He has gained weight and will, at optimum weight, be just under 40 lbs. Louie is fast; he loves to run and jump, and is equally apt at snuggling with humans and other dogs. Louie is excellent on a leash, is crate trained (though he prefers to be out and about), and is nearing being completely house trained. He is up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered. Louie is available for adoption on Kaua`i and O`ahu until the end of June. If he is not adopted in Hawaii, he will be available for adoption in the Portland, OR area.
Musts for Louie:
Access to a safe and secure fenced-in area to run daily.
Humans who will be away from the home no more than 4-5 hours a day. (An exception would be if Louie could go to work with his human.)
Humans who love to cuddle with him.
Be kept on a grain-free dog food as he has skin allergies to grain.
Pluses for Louie:
Another dog in the home who also enjoys playing and snuggling.
Humans who are familiar with handling and caring for sighthounds.
