Friendly Preteen is a Dog Lover

Nathan is a friendly 13-year-old boy who loves watching cartoons. In addition, Nathan never tires of his second love, which is playing video games. He has never seen a dog that he didn't love and hopes that his forever family will have at least one. Nathan is a people person. He gets along well with other children and adults. This healthy and active child will benefit most where he is the youngest child in the family. Nathan's forever family can be a one- or two-parent household that will provide love, support, and patience as Nathan maneuvers through growing challenges.

For additional information about Nathan or other children in need of adoption, call the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services at 1(800) 259-3428. If you are interested in providing a safe and stable home for a child who needs one, please call today or visit
