Story, Personality, Others:
Horatio was found on the highway and was caught by the services of the highway. Normally those services should take the dog to a municipal pound of the area where the dog was found but the pounds usually refuse saying they are full. So it is a vicious circle situation as the highway services should dump the dog back on the street.
So where is the dog usually taken? To a private shelter that does not get money from the municipality and has no profit from the highway fees. All involved are happy as they got rid of the dog and saved money, just the usual culprit gets the dog and all the costs involved. This is how it should not work but it does!
Well at least the dog is safe and probably in the only place where he will be cared for.
Horatio is a lovely dog, very gentle, sweet, calm. He is nice with people and with other dogs. Good as bread. Peaceful like a dove. He deserves better! But he probably won´t get better. He is old and blind on one eye and no pedigree. A dog that does not usually find a home regardless how gentle he is… Sad.
