It’s been 2 weeks with Louie now, and he’s quite the energetic and endearingly sweet little guy! For the first couple of days, we put him in a crate when we left him home alone during the day and overnight. But other than a quirky habit of moving shoes around the house (not chewing them!), he seems fine roaming the house unsupervised. He has decided he enjoys sharing my son’s bed at night, although my daughter’s bed works well for naps (as seen in photo)!

We give him 3-4 long walks a day, and he still has plenty of energy to play at home. He can jump as if he were on a pogo stick. He loves his chew toys and has shown us that if a toy is plush, he can destroy it in a matter of minutes. So Kong and Nylabone only for now! He seems to know his name and we are training him to sit, stay, leave it and take it. We can’t wait to see what else he can do as he continues to get comfortable his new home!

We’re so happy to have him as a member of our family!
