More About Me
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Louis is happy, loyal, smart and always pleased to see his owner - a perfect companion for someone home more often than not.
Louis is normally well behaved and a pleasure to have around the home. He can sometimes be a little protective of his home or owner by barking at newcomers but he usually stops this behaviour on command. When his owner leaves home Louise like a piece of her clothing to snuggle up to for comfort.
Louis loves to be close to his owner at all times, loves having a toy thrown for him and enjoys gentle play. He likes going in the car.
He does not like people trying to pat him around his face or being aggressive towards him, even in jest. He does not like being patted when he is on his bed either. Do these things and he may nip but otherwise he is sweet and gentle.
Active singles or couples, ideally empty nesters or retirees who are not frail, seeking a dog for companionship.
He is the ideal little lap dog who adores his owner and wants to be with you all the time.
While he is fine with small dogs (scared of large dogs) he would prefer to be the only permanent dog in the home so he can have all the attention.
Louis will not suit homes that are chaotic, loud or with kids who play roughly - any visiting kids should be teenagers or older and only if gentle and calm around dogs.
Louis will not suit homes where people live in very close proximity to each other with small outside areas e.g. villas, units, apartment complexes, terrace houses, strata complexes etc.
As Louis is people orientated he needs to be part of family activities.
He will not suit homes with residents that are:
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker.
Louis will suit any of the following:
Low - short strolls or playtime at home. Louis loves to get out and about each day but weighing less than 3 kgs, tires easily.
When ON a lead ...
Louis is well behaved but prefers short walks if on a lead.
When OFF a lead ...
He prefers to be off lead when walking and normally sticks very close by - his owner picks him up if she sees a big dog approaching as Louise can get scared.
