Louie is young at heart, and just like the rest of us, he is ignoring the number of candles each year on his birthday cake.

Louie is a chocolate Lab who came to Winnebago Animal Services as a stray, and a vet has determined him to be about 12 years old. I don't really believe this number, and either will you when you meet him.



You can meet a whole bunch of other awesome dogs like Louie who need homes this Sunday at Klehm Arboretum and Botanical Gardens' "Hot Diggity Dog Festival" from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Get all the details here, but be sure to stop into Winnebago County Animal Services today to meet Louie. He's a real sweetie.
