Adopt Me: Why doesn't anyone want Huey Louis?

Jul 15 2017, 3:05 pm

It’s been almost a year since I wrote about this sweet Staffordshire terrier, and still, he has no permanent home.

At the time, Huey Louis was working through some issues (aren’t we all?).

He didn’t like sharing and he wasn’t great on leash. Since then he’s been going to training every single week and making huge progress. He was even adopted out to a family, but ended up back in the care of L.E.A.S.H. when the family didn’t hold up their end of the deal – continuing with his training and getting him plenty of exercise.

So here we go again.

Huey needs a second chance. 

For a Staffy he is petite, weighing in at just 35 lbs. But what you get back is 1000 times that in love. He loves to get out and run, and then come home to a bone.

He’s smart and loves agility and has a variety of tricks mastered.

His ideal home is:

  • With a couple that is active – he likes jogging
  • One with teens – no small kids
  • Someone with a stable schedule – he loves routine

Huey is crate trained and sleeps at night in his comfy bed in there. He also promptly puts himself to sleep at 10 pm every night where he “dreams of boiled chicken and peanut butter,” says his foster parents.

He’s still getting used to meeting new people. He was very anxious and shy as a puppy and is working on these issues through training.

He loves his treats, positive reinforcement, and walks.

He’s such a funny, cuddly, friendly, smiley dog that is in need of a responsible and patient person to be his guide.

If you’re interested in adopting, follow L.E.A.S.H. on Facebook for updates, and visit their website to submit an application. And write me at [email protected] if you adopt Huey.
