Pet Description: Louie is a 6 year old, 10 pound, Maltese mix who was surrendered by his owner to a shelter in Kentucky. They obviously didn't care for him very well as he was a matted mess when he came to HART. The mats were so bad, he had to be completely shaved, so now poor Louie looks like a rat dog! Louie's foster said he is an absolutely awesome dog who does very well with small dogs. He is potty trained and has the cutest personality! Louie knows several commands such as stop, no (I think every dog knows that one ;), potty, nite nite, and treat. He loves absolutely everyone but isn't a fan of getting poked and prodded at the vet's office. Then again, who can blame him! I don't like needles either!
