Luigi needs a home! He's been in foster care with LRGR for one whole year...his whole life!
We know he doesn't resemble the typical labby-looking-dogs we usually have here for adoption at LRGR, but he's the perfect size for lap snuggles and on-the-go adventures!
Luigi loves to start his mornings off by giving you kisses, and then a lengthy walk followed by breakfast time! After that, he's ready for a nice looonnngggg nap. He's an angel during the day while his foster parents work and loves to lay at their feet if they are working from home. If they go into the office, he's a true gentleman while they're away and doesn't mess with anything!
In the afternoons and evenings, Luigi is ecstatic for more walks, playtime with doggy friends, or yard play. Once tuckered out from exercising, he adores snuggling right up on his human for TV time and enjoys helping you taste test that popcorn! For bedtime, Luigi either sleeps in the bed with his foster parents or sleeps on a dog bed next to his foster mama. During the day you can find him napping in his crate or on the sofa.
Luigi has grown up with all sorts of big dogs and enjoys playing most with Pitties, Great Danes, Mastiffs, Cane Corsos, Shepherds, etc - he gets so excited to see his friends for playdates!
Some of Luigi's favorite toys are Benebones, he has a stuffed elephant he loves, Chuckit! Kick Fetch ball, he is learning how to catch a frisbee, crinkly BARK toys, a stuffed Kong, and a good 'ol fashioned stick!
Luigi is quirky about feeding time. He likes to be away from the hustle and bustle of the kitchen, people, and other dogs, and enjoys a quiet, private room where he can savor his food at his own pace. He either eats off a snuffle mat, a lickmat, or is scatter fed.
Luigi is super thrilled about car rides and jumps right in, ready to hit the road! He enjoys hanging his head out the window to catch the breeze!
Due to Luigi being in foster care his whole first year of life, there will be a transition period for the adoption. There will be several Meet & Greets/trial visits, followed by sleepovers, then hopefully an adoption! He can be leery of meeting new people, so having patience is key + giving him time to adapt. He is located in downtown Richmond so you'd need to be willing to travel to him.
