This is Louie. He’s a six year old Australian shepherd and Chow mix, he’s my baby, and he’s currently homeless.
Here’s the situation: I abruptly moved to the DFW metro area this last weekend. I thought I had somewhere for him to stay for a few months while I saved for a bigger apartment that wasn’t on the third floor and also accepts dogs over 35lb (he weights 55lb), but that place fell through on Saturday while I was still battling the freeze on my way in. I was able to find a place for him to stay the night, but they refuse to take him for even one more day.
He’s a sweetheart. He whines a lot, but it’s only to talk to you. He doesn’t bark. He has the sweetest disposition of any dog I’ve ever had. He has food and skin allergies that require him to have a bath once a week and eat special food (which I can pay for).
The only place I have for him right now is in Garland, a two-hour drive away from where I’m staying in Euless, and I’m devastated at the thought of him being so far away. I’ve battled depression this year, and for a lot of the time, he was my reason to get out of bed. The place he was supposed to be staying was twenty minutes from my current home.
If anyone can help me out and take him in for two months, I will be eternally grateful. I’ll come over to give him the once a week bath and spend time with him. He doesn’t need much exercise. Really, just keep him fed and watered and pet his super soft, long fur, and he’s happy. Please please please, I don’t want him to be so far away where I can’t come and get him in an emergency or make sure he gets his baths.
