He used to have a home, a family, a comfy place to lay his head at night. Now, Louie, or #134846 as he’s known by caretakers at the Apple Valley Animal Services shelter spends his nights wondering what happened to his family.

According to Louie’s Adopt-a-Pet profile, when his previous family wanted to leave town for the Summer, but couldn’t find a dogsitter, they surrendered their 5-year old, 58-pound Labrador-mix to the shelter.

Indoor/Outdoor dog. Crate trained and housebroken. Dog walks well with the gentle leader or Halti He is OK with some dogs and doesn’t like other dogs. Just needs to be introduced properly. Has never seen a cat before. Has been around older kids. Loves to run with his owner (Up to 3 miles) Has always ate Iams from a raised bowl. Has never had any food issues. Has been to lots of doggie training…

His profile, ironically, also says, “He is a very good traveler.”

Can you help Louie find a happy new FOREVER home, with a family that will take him along on vacations? Share this story.
