Louis was rescued from the municipal shelter of Masan City when he was listed for euthanasia. This two-year-old boy that weighs about 20 kgs. is full of energy and curiosity. He’s pretty well trained on a leash but would pull hard at the beginning of the walk. He only goes potty outside, and that probably explains his pulling. He loves being outside and playing outdoors, but he can easily jump over fences. So, if he finds a forever home with a yard, it is advised that he be kept fenced in with effective methods like using a second fence or planting trees.

Louis has such a playful temperament that he gets along with other dogs and likes to have fun around them. But in situations where other dogs show aggression like growling for no specific reason or bite him from behind suddenly, he would get frustrated and provoked, which can possibly lead to a fight. When led by a trainer with a leash, he’d just get occupied by exploring his surroundings and urine marking showing no interest in other dogs. When meeting a new dog for the first time, he’d examine that dog carefully as if to read that dog’s mind and determine how he should respond. He would only be responsive to those dogs with some signs of aggression, but with other docile and gentle dogs, Louis makes such a great playmate.

With humans, Louis is just super sweet, friendly, and affectionate and loves being touched, cuddled, and rubbed on his belly. But with his physique being sturdy and big, the way he shows his affection to little kids may seem a bit dangerous. He will never get mouthy with people, but extra supervision may be necessary when he’s with little toddlers. He shows resource guarding for toys, so he may do best in a home with no competition for his toys. Training can also be helpful if this develops into a problem. He’s good with a kennel and doesn’t get vocal much.
