Gigi and Louie have been with their beloved guardian since they were puppies. The situation is heartbreaking for everyone, but his community is committed to trying to find a loving home for them to reside in. The guardian would like to keep the dogs together, but he is open to rehoming them separately if needed.

Louie is nursing a rear leg injury, but otherwise both dogs are in good health. The vet is unsure whether this injury will need further medical intervention beyond the medication he is currently taking, but please don’t let this deter you if you’re interested. As a community, we are committed to working with a potential adopter to assist with the cost of veterinary care.

Gigi and Louie are good with people, including kids. The guardian hasn’t seen the dogs interact with infants, and Louie’s excited nature could accidentally knock a little kid over. There have been two instances of scuffles with other dogs in the past. On both occasions, the dogs were off leash and approached Gigi unannounced. She is shy and fearful of other dogs in unknown situations and settings.

Their guardian does not take them to dog parks, but does allow other dogs to say hello or visit them for playdates when a good relationship has been established. Instead of daily neighborhood walks, he takes them to local trails so they can run off leash, as they tend to sniff everything and pull a lot on leash. Gigi and Louie have not had formal training, but they are well-mannered and respond to voice command, are completely house trained, and don’t mess up furniture.

The ideal family would be one that has space for two large animals to live comfortably, including a yard for them to run and play in, enjoys walks on trails, and will be patient and loving to two animals readjusting to life in a new home.
