|ADC:||Horton, 3-year-old Labrador and golden retriever mix|
|Handler:||Lt. Carlton Saunders|
|Community:||Howard County, Maryland|
|Training:||State Farm Arson Dog Program|
Horton visits forensic classes at Howard County high schools to demonstrate his role in fire investigations and identifying samples at a fire scene.
Lt. Saunders is a fire investigator for Howard County Fire and Rescue located southwest of Baltimore. Horton started his career as a service dog for people with disabilities but his exuberance made him better suited for accelerant detection training.
In his short 1 1/2-year tenure, Horton has identified ignitable liquids at many fires and visits schools for fire safety presentations, earning the respect of firefighters and investigators along the way.Next (6 of 11): Judge from Pennsylvania
