After living the life of a mill mama, we had a feeling super sweet Louisa would take to living the good life of a beloved FBRN foster like a fish to water. We were right and she’s ready to find her forever family who will continue showering her with the love and affection she deserves.
Affectionately called “Lulu” by her foster family, 3-year-old Louisa is known around these parts for her adorable toothy smile. She was born with a slight cleft lip but it doesn’t affect her one bit, unless increased cuteness counts! Louisa brings more to the table than just good looks: she’s good with kids, dogs and cats! She does have an energetic, rambunctious streak now and then so sturdier kids might be the best match. She also loves to chew anything within reach so kids (and adults) must secure anything they don’t want Louisa getting her cute toofers on.
Louisa is also quite the super athlete. A secure yard with a tall fence is a must to keep “pogo-stick hops-a-lot” Louisa safe. She also loves to explore the yard now that she doesn’t find herself in a crate all the time. You can catch her doing zoomies with her canine foster siblings or rolling in the grass. She is very smart and loves to be near her people. She needs an active family who will keep her mind busy and continue with her training. As much as she plays hard, she also rests hard, loving to curl up in your lap after being tuckered out.
Louisa grew up living in a crate so while she does well confined for several hours, a home where someone is around most of the time is preferred. Louisa is an active little lady and can find her own fun and games (sneakers) if she is allowed to become bored. If she were to become an office dog, she might wander to neighboring cubicles and explore a trash can or two. All of that needs to be taken into account when applying.
Potty training is also understandably a work in progress considering her history. If she is kept on a consistent schedule, accidents can be kept to a minimum but applicants need to be prepared to continue patiently working with Louisa in this area and expect accidents.
Foster mom says, “If I didn’t already have a totally full house, Louisa would totally be a foster fail. Despite a tough start, she is the sweetest, most fun little dog! She will stare lovingly at you with her big, soft eyes, give you that toothy little smile, and try to wiggle her way into your arms. She’s just a wonderful girl who deserves all the love in the world!“
If you are a family who doesn’t know the meaning of personal space and can’t get enough of doggy snuggles and cuddles, then Louisa would like you to apply. She’s a little too big to fly and does really well in the car so a road trip to NJ is preferred. She’ll have her pogo stick packed and ready!
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people’s private homes. For the foster families’ safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don’t set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
