Get to Know Dustin

Dustin came to the SPCA of Texas as a transfer from the Kentucky Humane Society. An SPCA of Texas staff member has been working diligently with simple trust activities, haltering, and also farrier work. Dustin is a shy little boy but he seems to be really sweet once he becomes comfortable. He loves scratches and grooming, also the occasional treat is very much appreciated. Dustin has made long strides and continues to improve each day. Confidence and consistency are what will make the biggest difference for Dustin as he does best with repetition. He would make any horse owner a wonderful prospect for any discipline and will continue to learn and grow in time.
