Louie is the first heartbreak I'm sending you tonight.  Tomorrow will be a real tear jerker.
Just like Carla Bennett shared with us her saving an older dog, if only for that dog to know love a few weeks, months, maybe hours, this old timer needs the same Guardian Angel.
He is approximately 10 years old and looks 20.
Life has not been kind to Louie. 
His ears are in bad shape.  BARC is treating them.  Dr. W thinks his ear issues (assuming he does not have anything more serious, like something vestibular) are the cause of him being a bit wobbly in his gait.  He is also doing the head tilt a bit.  A vet tech who gave him his meds today said he's doing much better than yesterday, when he would suddenly just teeter over.
I saw none of that today.  He was a tiny bit shaky on his feet, but otherwise did great outdoors.
He walks very well on a leash, moves at a nice clip.
He is super affectionate.
Watch out when you bust out the treats!  Louie thought I had Golden Corral written across my forehead.  He gobbled them down like he had a green light.  He doesn't need groceries, he needs HEB!  He's incredibly skinny.
Louie has such a handsome face.  Just look at those eyes, begging you to give him as much time as the good Lord will allow him.  He'll thank you every single day you extend his.  Louie is extremely gentle.
If you have a spare bedroom, Louie says that'll do.  He'll even share with another four-legged critter. 



This DOG - ID#A1259425

I am a male, brown and black Labrador Retriever mix.

The shelter staff think I am about 10 years old.

I have been at the shelter since Aug 08, 2014.
