Hi! They call me Louis Kazagger since I was a part of the Muppets themed transport. I am one happy happy 😃 and handsome pup! I'm guessed to be a 3 year young Hound mix and weigh about 56 pounds. I'm a sweet boy and totally know how to sit especially if treats are involved! Ha ha!
Ready to see some videos?
Those who know me have said I am a sweet boy looking for love and attention. I am affectionate and love hugs. I have a spunky and playful personality that’ll cheer a crowd! I do like to play with dogs that I have met. And I absolutely LOVE car rides!!! I am ready to go with you anywhere.
I probably would do better in a home with older kids (15+ please!) due my size. Sometimes I may forget that I am a bigger guy and tend to act like a puppy.
I am well behaved in the house. Leash training is going very well. People like to take me on walks now but I am a hound mix and hounds like to stop and sniff stuff and am on the strong side. I am smart and eager to please.
I’ve been told I will be a wonderful addition to someone’s life. But I wanted to mention one more thing, likely due to my past life experiences before I was rescued, I like to protect my food. They say this behavior is called resource guarding, it is very common and is easily manageable by humans. And maybe in time, I’ll get better at not doing it. My foster dad has been working super hard on it with me and I’ve improved a ton and he has a great system that he will teach you all about, it’s not overwhelming, I promise.
So now you know ALL about me. I'm soooo excited to have a new forever loving 🥰 home. Is that with you? Are you an experienced large dog owner looking for a new companion and willing to work to manage my resource guarding? If so apply today! I won't be available for long!
"This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. The dog was treated for the disease prior to transport north. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable. Read more about heartworm disease here here"
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
