My name was Highway, to be
exact - I 95. Now it's Louis, yes, I finally settled on that name. love
it! I was found wandering on I 95, near a rest stop. Nobody
was missing a five pound little guy, and so I was taken to a shelter in South
Carolina. Of course I was very scared, but the staff was kind and gentle with
me and arranged for me to travel up North. So here I am , in a foster home in
NY. It took exactly one good meal and I felt right at home and weaved around
the house and made contact with some of the other dogs here. I am very easy
At first take I was thought to be a Chihuahua, but actually, I am probably some
"designer breed" - your guess is as good as mine. My personality and
playful attitude is definitely terrier, maybe Toy Fox Terrier. I run and keep
up with the fasted crowd here! And I do have terrier ears to boot! There
is another best guess: Pug/Toy fox terrier mix.
Besides having been fixed
a long time ago, I also had some "dental work" done in the past -
some of my left molars have been pulled, and my tongue lost it's support system on
the left side. I still have lots of healthy, good looking teeth left in the
back and front. I like chew toys and eat dry dog food, but I love the home
Housetraining? I do
my business outside on cue! I am not a
territorial marker if you get my drift. I am not that familiar with walking on
a leash, but I am learning. Age? Run and play like a 2 year
old, but my eyes show that I am over 6 years old probably.
I don't have heart-
any other kind of worms, had all my vaccines, I am ready to look for a
home all of my own. I am content here and happy, but I really could use more
one-on-one, and also some extra "Lap Time".
I get along great with
other dogs. No need to put up the "big dog in a small body" show, I
mingle easily and get respect like any other dog.
