Mr. Perfection!

Hey now…. I am Ottis, and I am the most handsome fella in town! My foster mama definitely says so! I am a 2.5 years old, 67 lb, male neutered Terrier mix. I have a long story, so sit tight. I was adopted from the Humane Society, but my family weren’t able to meet my needs. They were going to relinquish me, and that’s about when I escaped form their backyard. Babs Fry was called and once she found me, she took me in for 6 months. She requested TAP to make me their dog since kennels weren’t good for me. I am also mischievous in the yard alone and a flight risk. Check those fences, okay? I am also crate trained now, and able to settle in when alone at home too. I have been a good boy since and bathroom, leash trained.

I am just a big puppy and want love and affection. The world sometimes makes me nervous, so slow introductions with dogs and people help me develop positive associations. I actually did rather well during the holiday season with lots of new people! I am a sweet and submissive boy, with lots of gentle kisses for all! Dogs and humans alike! I haven’t met kids yet. Yes, I do live with foster doggie siblings, and check out our boyband picture. New album dropping soon :D. I have moderate energy and a good long walk per day is a must, along with playtime and mental stimulation. I may show separation anxiety at a new home, but with TLC and training, will settle in, peaceful and crated. My foster mama says I am as close to ‘perfect’ as possible! My squinty eyes and big wagging tail are heart winners!

I would love a moderately active home that’s looking for a walk, hike, jog buddy. I will thrive in a home with similar sized dogs where we can play. Other doggos will also help me stay calm when we are alone and in my crate. Hope the other dogs are gentle as I am a lot of brawn and little brain (Jk!) and they can correct me when I am being too ‘in your face’. But I can guarantee that love wont stop short with me around! My adoption fee is $400 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
