Future uncertain for huggable Horace
Spread the love

Since mid-January, a handsome pit bull dubbed “huggable Horace” has managed to beat the odds at the busy Los Angeles County Baldwin Park animal control facility in California. But now, after months have passed, his future is uncertain.

Volunteer photographer John Hwang recently paid a visit to the facility and captured beautiful images of the homeless dog – Hwang wrote:

“Spent time with Auntie Elaine today. She’s been trying to find a a good home or rescue for a lovable dog she nicknamed “Huggable Horace.” Sadly he’s been at the shelter for the past few months with his future uncertain.”

Is there anyone who might be willing to give this homeless boy a chance? Someone who can see his potential to be a faithful companion? Please help Horace find his special someone by taking a moment to network his adoption information.
