Happy Louis gets spot on sofa when he’s at work

South Wales Echo - - YOUR PETS -

Pet’s name: Louis. Breed: French Bull­dog. Age: 18 months. Owner: Kate El­lam, 32, from Rhi­w­bina. Owner’s story: “Louis is from Cardiff Dogs Home. I fol­low them on Face­book and he popped up. You don’t see pedi­gree dogs in the dogs homes so I went down there to have a look at him. I walked him ev­ery day and fell in love.

“He was dumped in the street and he was really skinny. Now he’s a sa­lon dog at my sa­lon, K8’s Short Bark N Sides in Whitchurch.

“We just moved into the sa­lon, but we’ve been going for four years. It’s been amaz­ing – really busy.

“Louis comes to work with me ev­ery day. He sits on the sofa and looks out the win­dow. He also plays with all the dogs that come in.

“You would never have be­lieved he comes from a dogs home. He’s put on weight and he’s the hap­pi­est dog ever. He’s mis­chievous, cheeky and en­er­getic.

“He’s very gen­tle. One time we fed him steak off a knife and fork.

“He loves chil­dren. Ev­ery time we go to the park, he runs off and wants to go into the park.

“We have an­other dog, Bai­ley, known as Mr B. He’s an 11-year-old pug. Louis has given Bai­ley a new lease of life. He wasn’t into play­ing but now he plays again now.

“They love food. When they get fed, they check each other’s bowls for food.

“We call him Lord Louis now and King Bai­ley.

“Louis doesn’t like to get up early in the morn­ing. He has to be car­ried by me into the sa­lon.

“He doesn’t like the rain or the snow or get­ting his feet wet.

“He is really good at do­ing tricks, though. We’ve trained him to stand up on his back legs and do a hi-five.”
