Pet of the Week

Meet Louis! He’s the Heart of the Rockies Radio Pet of the Week!

Louie is an incredibly handsome and loving 5-year-old male American Pit Bull Terrier mix who had a rough start to life but is still so trusting of humans and truly has a resilient spirit.

Louie was first brough to the humane society in January of 2020 under heartbreaking conditions. He had been found abandoned and incredibly emaciated, weighing only 44lbs at the time. Despite the neglect, he was always incredibly loving to everyone he encountered and learned new commands quickly and made everyone laugh as he chased his favorite giant ball in the yard. He was adopted into a loving home who made the difficult choice to bring him back to us several years later when they had a big life change.

Louie enjoys spending his days behind the front desk and makes a great office dog! During our recent event at the shelter, he calmly spent time behind the desk as visitors toured the facility.
