Adopted. Gone Home!

My name was Highway, to be exact - I 95. Now it's Louis, yes, I finally settled on that name. love it! I was found  wandering on I 95, near a rest stop. Nobody was missing a five pound little guy, and so I was taken to a shelter in South Carolina. Of course I was very scared, but the staff was kind and gentle with me and arranged for me to travel up North. So here I am , in a foster home in NY. It took exactly one good meal and I felt right at home and weaved around the house and made contact with some of the other dogs here. I am very easy going. At first take I was thought to be a Chihuahua, but actually, I am probably some "designer breed" - your guess is as good as mine. My personality and playful attitude is definitely terrier, maybe Toy Fox Terrier. I run and keep up with the fasted crowd here! And I do have terrier ears to boot! There is another best guess: Pug/Toy fox terrier mix. 
Besides having been fixed a long time ago, I also had some "dental work" done in the past - some of my left molars have been pulled, and my tongue lost it's support system on the left side. I still have lots of healthy, good looking teeth left in the back and front. I like chew toys and eat dry dog food, but I love the home cooked variety!
Housetraining?  I do my business outside on cue!  I am not a territorial marker if you get my drift. I am not that familiar with walking on a leash, but I am learning.  Age?  Run and play like a 2 year old, but my eyes show that I am over 6  years old probably.
I don't have heart-  or any other kind of worms, had all my vaccines, I am  ready to look for a home all of my own. I am content here and happy, but I really could use more one-on-one, and also some extra "Lap Time".
I get along great with other dogs. No need to put up the "big dog in a small body" show, I mingle easily and get respect like any other dog.

We don't usually place toy breed dogs (under 10 lbs weight) into families with children under 10.

 

 

 

I run fast!  In grass, not on highways,

The shelter may have been scary at first, but I got special care!
