Update Received September 2013: Things are going great! Louie has certainly come out of his shell. Much of his shyness has turned into curiosity and friendlness with all the socialization his is getting. He's also doing great at dog school. Learns new tricks seamlessly and seems proud to do so. He made a best friend with my family dog Mason and still loves to play in the water (see attached photos). Thank you for taking such good care of a great pup. We are certainly able to tell he recieved a ton of love prior to us adopting him.
