Louie's Story... by suezn Louie's Story... by suezn
   Louie (short for Louisville) is one and a half years old now and is happy and healthy.  His story; he is a rescue pup.  My daughter took him in.  The person he  was taken from (and the entire litter), was a woman who left them outside, kicked them, and repeatedly hurt them.  Louie was very torn up when my daughter took him.  He was full of cuts and sores and missing patches of hair.  After the rescue was arranged, my daughter immediately took Louie to the vet (the others were waiting for their forever homes but were safe being fostered and cared for).  He is thriving now and gets along with my daughter's three cats.  However, Louie to this day, Louie does not like to stay outside and play.  Being outside frightens him, especially at night.  He's a beautiful sweet boy. 
  I chose vintage for this photo to represent that his hurt is all in the past now.

Yeah, people think changing one little life is next-to-nothing, but for the cat, dog or human whose life is changed it's everything.

You can see in his eyes that he has a 'past'  Full of emotion and anticipation. He is safe now and grateful and you can see how he is so willing to do anything that makes you happy.  I'm so glad he got you now.
Do you have any idea what has happened with his brothers and sisters?   Poor thing.  Probalbly scared outside, because maybe it ment that he was kicked out again.  It might help to give him treats outside and going in  and  out the house, so maybe he got more trust that being outside is an option and not  a punishment.  Just  an idea...  I am a dummy!   :o (Eek)

Thank you so much for your kind comments on "Louie's Story."  
Unfortunately, I do not know to whom the other's were adopted out too.  But they were being very well cared for with fosters. 
very good suggestions and yes, my daughter is doing that with him and it is helping him enjoy being outside more.  He loves to play ball too.  Heart Hug
