Here’s what else Potter League for Animals has to say about Louie Haha;

There is just something special about this big, sweet goofball. He’s very large… When you see him, you may clap your hands, let out a whoop of excitement, or simply exclaim, “Ohhh myyyy…” Louie Haha is just that cool looking! And his personality? He’s a cuddlebug! This big guy loves to give sloppy kisses and hugs! Not only does Louie Haha love his people, but he loves to pal around with other dogs, too! Do you love to have everyone admire your dog, and stop to say hello? Kinda like the coolest kid in the class? Mr. Popularity? Well, that’s Louie Haha! He takes being cool to an entirely new level. Come on in and meet this big beefcake, you won’t be sorry!
