Louie is a 2 year old, red, smooth dachshund that is the most loving boy you will ever meet. He is gentle and sweet. His favorite thing to do is to lay on your lap. Louie loves other dogs, especially his foster brother Hoagie (DRNA #12430), also looking for a home. Hoagie and Louie would absolutely love to go home together, but it's not mandatory. They play every chance they get. Louie is housetrained, affectionate, quiet, and stands on his hind legs and flaps his front paws when he wants attention. He is a joy to have as a companion, and will be sure to be your best friend. Louie does have dry eye and requires medication 3 times a day with eye cleaning. He is good about this and allows you to do this without any issue. He must go to a home where his adopter will have the time, ability and finances to commit to his proper eye care. His eye care medications cost about $80 a month. He sees fine and acts like any other happy dachshund. Louie is truly a loving and nice boy! He does great with new people and rarely barks. Because Louie has to take medication, he is considered a special needs/medical dog and his adoption fee is only $150. He does need an adopter who is home to care for his eyes. He also needs a fenced yard, all adult home and a playful high energy dog buddy his size in the home. ****Applicants must be willing to travel to Ellicott City MD (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Louie (and hopefully Hoagie).****
