This week we’d like to feature a sweet girl named Loulou! Loulou is graduate of our behavior modification (BMod) program. She’s a terrier/red heeler who is 1-year-and-3-months old. Loulou - Oregon Humane Society . Not only does she have a video in her profile, this happy girl also has a whole bunch of photos!
Loulou is a confident, active young gal and she would love to get up and go on all the outdoor adventures with her family! And at 45lbs, she’s a fantastic size! The water is her FAVORITE! She’s often found frolicking through the sprinklers, or diving face first into the kiddie pool and worming around. Loulou is the kind of dog that would be up for any kind of adventure. Hiking or camping? Absolutely! Trips to the river or beach? Definitely! Running? Yes, again! During her time at OHS, Loulou has been a star member of the volunteer running team. She loves to run! Loulou will do best in a home with a dog experienced owner(s) and because of her exuberance, she may be too much for really young children and cats/small animals. Giving her appropriate outlets for her energy and exercise needs will be essential to her success in the home.
Loulou’s heart is full of love; she adores ALL toys, loves playing with her dog friends, and she really enjoys spending time with her human friends! After her walks, she is often found snuggled up on the couch, watching TV, with her human friends or sleeping upside down on the bed in her kennel ❤. Not only is she an excellent snuggler, but she’s an incredibly smart dog! During her time in BMod, Loulou has learned a lot; including how to sit, lie down, stay, drop it, and walking nicely on a leash! She is also doing well with her potty and crate training. Loulou likes to play and is social with other dogs and could do well living with a doggie sibling. In fact, she may love having a dog friend (or friends!) to play with! But she may also enjoy being someone’s one & only and being the center of their attention. Before going to a home with a resident dog, a pet meet is required to ensure the dogs are a good match.
BMod adoptions, for dogs like Loulou, always start with a phone consult, this allow us to understand what our clients are looking for in their next pet dog and help match them with the best dog for the lifestyle. From there, clients will meet with Loulou several times, usually over the course of a few days to a week, before bringing her home. This allows the clients to see the full range of Loulou’s behaviors, for Loulou’s trainers to transfer all her training skills to her new owners and develop a successful home introduction plan. We really want our dogs and clients to be successful in the home, so we will give you the skills to succeed, but it is up to her owner(s) to continue the work in the home.
If you think you might be the right match for our girl, Loulou, please fill out the questionnaire in her profile and someone from the Oregon Humane Society behavior modification team will give you a call to chat with you about her.
