Hixson is a tricolor rat terrier that was found roaming the streets of Harrisburg in early July. However, this seven year old boy didn’t have to wait long to find his new forever family! On July 23 Hixson left with his new best friend Raymond. Ever since that day this pair has been inseparable. Recently, Raymond’s sister Terry, sent the HSHA staff an update on this handsome pup!
“Hi! Thanks to all who helped make this match so perfect - my brother loves Hixon -which is now named Fritz - it has changed both their lives. They are the best of buddies. Together they enjoy taking napes, sleeping together at night, and taking walks. Thank you all again!”
