Don't hate me because I am beautiful!
Hey my name is Horton and I am pretty darn humble. I am not stuck up at all even though I am so darn good looking. I sit nicely on my bed and love playing with toys. I am not much of a face licker but boy do I love rolling over for belly rubs. Some people say I look like a funny bat dog the way my ears stick up when I am happy and then slide sideways when I am inspecting things. I am soft and sweet and pretty darn cool. Did I mention that already?
I was found as a stray in Truckee so I am familiar with all the potential fun there is to have around town. I am a bit sensitive to loud noises in the shelter and may need a home that is less energetic. I can hang with other dogs and cats too. Like I said..pretty darn cool!
I have tested positive for heartworm but am on medication and doing well. I'm about halfway through my treatment, which can be continued in my new home.
