My name is Luis. I'm a good boy and I have the typical appeal that all deserving dogs have ... soft fur, sweet eyes, irresistible ears and because of my “recent” unfortunate past, some needy behaviors :). Hey, you may as well know it up front ... I'm nervous and concerned for my future. In fact, at this point I lack a bit of confidence. My preferred place to be is on the lap of my favorite volunteer and it breaks her heart to leave me each day. You see ... I was once in a house and use to a couch but now I reside in a cold and sterile shelter. This is not my idea of “living” but I’m hopeful my fate will change soon. Check out my unique markings … they make me extra cute!
Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to kindly work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
