This sweet senior was likely dumped - a kind person witnessed it, scooped Houston up and got him to the protective confines of a shelter.
Aside from being filthy, neglected and missing fur from fleas - he’s a great guy! He initially wouldn’t eat but changed his mind and gobbled up meals. Good thing because he’s about 48 lbs.
With a good bath and groom, ongoing nutrition and lots of love, things will look up for him - they already are! Our transporter said he's a spry guy. We'll find Houston a terrific home where he'll be adored!

Houston completed his first heart worm treatment on September 9. He is being confined to a small area while recovering. His spirits seem good and so does his appetite. He will have another treatment in 30 days. Keep thinking positive thoughts and sending good vibes to this sweet boy.

Houston has completed his heart worm treatment. He did quite well with it. He is back home now, resting and relaxing. He will remain on restrictions for the next 6-8 weeks. He is eating well and seems to be happy to be back in familiar surroundings, following a 2 night hospital stay. Thanks to all who have sponsored his treatment and recovery. He is the best boy ever!
Foster Update: 9/2/19
Houston continues to do well in his foster home. He is gaining weight and enjoying life. He is house trained and very well behaved both inside the house and outside in the yard. He is a little nervous in the car, but hopefully more opportunities for a ride will help with that. He begins his heart worm treatment on September 9. His foster family will keep everyone updated on this sweet boy's progress.

Houston is doing very well in his foster home. He is enjoying getting 3 squares a day and sleeping in a comfortable environment. He gets along well with all of the resident critters, canine and feline alike. We will keep everyone posted on his progress as he undergoes treatment for heartworm. Keep those positive thoughts coming for this sweet old soul. Right now Houston's favorite activities are eating and sleeping and getting lots of love from his foster family.
