Meet Otis!

If you're looking for a dog who has endless energy, but is also a master of snuggles, you should meet Otis!

Otis was an owner surrender to our rescue. He was given up, because he was killing chickens on his previous owner's farm. She said that he also had a problem with cats and male dogs, but since coming to foster he has been around both without issue. He does enjoy chasing the cats but hasn't shown any aggression.

Otis is boundless in his energy and will definitely keep you busy. This dog just loves to be outside. Whether it's a walk, a trip to the park or on the river, he is happiest out in the sun. He likes fetch, but doesn't understand that part about bringing the ball back. When he's in the house he enjoys chewing on bones, playing tug, lounging on the couch and inching closer and slower until you give in to belly rubs and pets. Forced cuddles are his favorite indoor activity.

Otis has a fluffy black and white coat with a crazy cow lick on the base of his neck. He's up to date on all of his shots and neutered. He's learned a few manners since coming to his foster home but still has a ways to go. With a little bit of training, he'll make an amazing family dog!

To start the adoption process, please fill out an application and then contact Shari Maciejewski at All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Otis's adoption fee is $300, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.

Thank you for considering a rescue!
