Louis (aka Pork-chop!)

I was adopted on Sept 23!

Bonjour, je m'appelle Louis, but my friends call me Pork-chop. I just arrived at Newf Friends on Aug 17 and I am already making lots of friends and having a great time!

My coat was shaved down at the shelter
I was found as a stray in Quebec and was taken to a shelter.  Nobody came looking for me and I stayed there for many months.  The Newf folks heard about me and offered to help me find a great home.  Hooray! 

The rescue folks say I am kinda' chunky -- time to get exercising!
The vet estimates I am around 4 years old, and they think I am a mix, maybe Newf/lab.  I am 129lbs, but should probably be closer to 110 lbs.  My coat was shaved while I was at the shelter so the Newf folks said we'll have to wait and see what I look like when it grows back!  

I've met lots of other dogs on my journey to my foster home and I get along with all of them.   Ya, I'm a sweet boy!  I could join a family with another well mannered dog, no problem.  I also like cats!

I'm a happy fella!
 I'm super friendly and love to be petted and soak up attention.  Kids make me happy and I am well mannered and just an all around awesome fella if I do say so myself.   I am pretty darn perfect!

I'm bilingual and know basic commands, en francais!  I have nice manners and am an easy going boy.

I have been vaccinated, wormed and neutered.  I had a lump removed from my leg and the test results came back showing it is nothing to be worried about. Phew! 

I am being fostered in the Port Perry, ON area and the lucky family who get to adopt me will need to pick me up in person.  Because I am a mixed breed dog a reduced adoption donation of $400 applies.  If you think you'd like to adopt me, please complete an adoption application and email it back to the rescue folks.
