Hi, I’m Ludo! I’m a very handsome and unique corgi mix, mostly black with little spots of white on my chest and chin. I’m the perfect-sized dog!
I’m quite timid and scared of people in general, so I prefer being in a quiet environment. And I really want to be with someone who is home a lot of the time. And I really like playing with dogs, so I would do best in a home that has another dog! That's when you'll really see my tail wag! I get along fine with my cat foster brother, and I even often let him share the couch with me (see the photo with us sitting together)! I think I would be pretty overwhelmed by children.
I’m very good on the leash and don’t pull at all; but I need to be double leashed to make sure I stay safe, and I need a fenced yard (shared apartment complex dog parks will not be considered such). My foster mom crate trained me, but I prefer to spend my time in a comfier place.
It would also be great if I could find a home with someone who has a very consistent schedule. I would love to sit on the couch or bed with you. And note that I take treats very gently from your hand, as you can see in my video. Just to let you know: my favorites are hot dogs! When you share treats with me, that's partly how I know I can trust you. It takes some time for me to warm up and feel comfortable in a new environment. But I'm up for the challenge if it means I can have a loving forever home of my own! I can't wait to meet you!
I'm up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative.
I’ve had an adventurous life in my short 3.5 years (I may be a bit older, but I'm pretty sure I’m under 4!). I was found roaming the streets of a rural area and came to live with my foster mom after being in a local shelter for about a month. After my first week with my foster mom, I got scared on our nightly walk and ran away; but luckily, a dog tracker (Linda Cook), along with volunteers from IAR and other lovely people helped get me home!
