Louise

Louise is a gentle quiet 12 year old pit bull mix. We adopted her almost 10 years ago from the Humane Society. Before that, she was rescued from a fighting ring and amazingly is still a lovable and docile girl. She's always enjoyed simply sleeping on the couch and going for walks. Sadly, I need to move for work and I am unable to take her with me. So we are desperately looking for a new home for Louise.
