02/05/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Lou is a very welcoming young man. He is sitting right by his door, a generous splitting smile on his face and his tail beating the floor of his den. He is a big boy, only eight months of age, healthy looking and dressed in an impeccable silver and white coat. His eyes really seem to laugh. Lou is happy to go for a walk even in torrential rain. He spotted a tennis ball and began to play right away. He does not mind sharing it with me. He is smart and knows that the game takes two. Lou can sit on command and will jump for treats. He pulls on the leash, but who would not in this weather? Better to shelter ourselves and attempt to shoot some pictures. Lou was owned since the age of 2 months and relinquished into our care because of housing issues. He lived, played and slept with a 6 year old child and mingled happily with two adult Pitties. He is said to be across the board a good happy go lucky little boy who most likely needs just some fine tuning to fit right in with a new owner or family who will elect him as their forever best friend. Handsome young Lou is a super friendly guy who is waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center. Come and meet him soon… this young man will brighten your life.

He did not pull his paw back on both Squeeze attempts, tail wagging. Lou showed minimal interest in Toy, but this may be due to environment as owner reports he loves to play. When off leash with other dogs Lou greets and seems unsure until the helper dog begins to solicit play. He reciprocates bows when offered and will give chase when solicited.

He would benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of daily walks, runs, exercise, play as well as durable toys such as kongs and nylabones to positively direct his energy.
