Houdini has certainly earned his new name! He eluded shelter ACO's for weeks as they tried tirelessly to catch him while he ran around town in the harsh winter elements. Their dedication paid off because he is finally safe, sound and warm in a shelter kennel. He does not appear to be familiar with the basics like how to sit but despite his ordeal he has sure mastered that art of giving smooches! Come meet this gentle guy who deserves a second chance at becoming a beloved family member.
