Arrival Story: Horton would like you to look past his damaged skin and missing clumps of hair caused by neglect and mange and see the beautiful boxer he will become. His cropped ears and snubbed tail and graceful body will be elegant and majestic in no time. Horton loves attention and wants to follow his humans everywhere. In fact his ideal home would be a home where his human spends lots of time with him and understands how adult dogs can learn just like puppies can; with patients and consistency. He is good with kids and enjoys his walks and snuggle time.
At this time we would like to see Horton placed in a home without other dogs. He has had a lot of stress in the past and needs to find security in himself as well as his home before he is ready to meet new challenges and new dogs.
Horton has recently been crate trained and is working on other aspects of being a family member.
