Hi! My name is Otis and if you looked up “sweet boy” in the dictionary, you would find a picture of me!  Although my past isn’t well known, my foster family can tell that I’ve been through a lot.  I came into rescue very underweight, but I’ve done a great job of putting some weight on and my foster family gives me extra treats, which I love and will gladly sit for!   I enjoy going for walks, but sometimes I can’t figure out what this rope thing is attached to me and I try to chew on it.  I enjoy playing and cuddling with my foster brother, but my foster family thinks I’d be fine as an only dog or with others.  My foster family also has this thing called a cat that I’m very interested in, but the cat hasn’t let me get close enough to it, so I’m not sure how I’d do with it.  I don’t mind going in my kennel when the humans leave and have no problem sleeping on my own bed, but I will climb into yours if you let me.  One thing to know about me is that I think I’m a guard dog and will bark at people walking by, but once I know that the humans like them I’m ok with letting them pet me.  I do require a fenced in yard, since I have a tendency to want to run.  If you’re looking for an all around good boy than I might be the one for you!
