Houston is an old man at heart and is very independent. Although he likes to be left alone, he'll occasionally curl up beside you on your lap and cuddle. He loves to watch squirrels and birds out the window. He has never enjoyed playing with toys or bones. He has a heart condition but is not yet on medication. He would be happy in a home that is loving and is okay with a very independent dog who loves nothing more than to lay about with an occasional belly rub.
