Louise is one of our Diamond in the Ruff dogs. These dogs are selected because of special ownership requirements. They have quirks, needs, dislikes, and/or habits that require up-front commitments and understanding from their new owner to give the dog the utmost care, patience and training to ensure that the new relationship has the best chance of working. To assist with the transition, Homeward Bound will provide consultation and in-depth individual sessions with the new owner and dog that will be conducted by our contracted dog trainer, Jill Halstead.

Louise came to the shelter as a stray. She is a 2-year old who has a lot of energy and loves playing with squeaky toys and balls. The toys are even more interesting than her breakfast some mornings. Louise gets nervous in new situations but has come a long way since she first stepped her paws into the shelter. She needs some extra time to warm up to new people, but once she does she is the most cuddly, affectionate pup you will ever meet. Louise is currently in foster, where she is working on her housetraining and exposure to every day life. Louise enjoys walks and being around other dogs. Louise is excellent at solving difficult puzzle toys and loves treats.
