At Wayside Waifs, we have over 300 animals in our care that need a home, and this week we would like to spotlight one. What makes this Waif so sweet? Well, just look at that smile. Lewis is a two-year-old Pit Bull-Terrier mix and he is about as amiable as they come. You can just see the hope in Lewis’ eyes. You see, Lewis was brought in from the streets with his sister, who was later picked up by their former owner. Lewis, however, was left behind and remains waiting for his forever home. So, ready to learn what makes Lewis so special?
Why We Love Lewis:
Despite Lewis’ devastating abandonment, he remains one of the most hopeful foster dogs in the shelter. Since Lewis knows what it was like to have a home, he has been eagerly waiting to find a new, permanent one with a loving family who will never leave him behind. His hopeful attitude is one of the many things that makes Lewis such a heartbreaker.
Lewis is one affable pup. He is also obedient, house-trained, and eager-to-please. The result is one happy-go-lucky pooch. And did we mention Lewis loves to go walking. His leash-side manner is excellent, so he looks forward to going on lots of walks with his future owners.
Since Lewis came from a home, he knows what it is like to be part of the family and he just can’t wait to settle back in with a new, permanent one. Growing up with a sister, Lewis plays well with other dogs and would really enjoy having another live-in canine companion. Children are great, too; however, he prefers big kids who are over the age of five. Sometimes Lewis gets anxious around unexpected movement, so he needs a family who speaks softly to him and is conscientious of his occasional anxiety.
