If you are of a certain age, you will remember watching the Lone Ranger riding off to adventures with his kemosabe, Tonto. This Tonto is also ready for some adventures.
Two year old Tonto is very handsome.  He is a hound/lab mix. His striking, red coat makes heads turn when he is on leash.
Tonto enjoys romping around the play yard with another dog. He recently discovered a love for the pears that have fallen off the tree in the yard.  After play time is over he is happy to settle down and be a couch potato.
Tonto is ready to be your kemosabe. If you can picture yourself riding off into the sunset with your best friend beside you, then hitch up your pony and ride down to Responsible Pet Care.
