Introducing Louie31 October 2011

Say hello to Louie, the pooch Melissa and I adopted from a local canine rescue. Louie's a energetic little guy who's been through a lot. From what we know, he appears to be part beagle, part pug dachshund ( a"puggle doxle") and is about 1.5 years old. He came into Chicago Animal Control as a stray, and folks seem to think he was hit by a car. Chicago Canine Rescue saved the lil' guy, paid for hip surgery, and put him into a foster home. After some training, he was listed on where Melissa instantly fell in love. He is settling in nicely.
