What kind of home would be best for me? I would love a home with a family that has a lot of love to give. I'm pretty calm but I do like to explore. I'm fine with other dogs, but they need to be confident dogs because I tend to pick on the ones that give off nervous energy. Cats are okay I guess; I pretty much ignore them.
What is my personality like? I'm Otis and I came to the farm under the background story that I lived in a fenced yard with a few others for a while. I didn't get a lot of attention so now I'm trying to make up for it. You could just be sitting there working and you will feel my little paws on your leg staring at you with a little grin until I get attention. I'm very good at sniffing things out. I love to smell and see new places and things. I'm very observant- you can't sneak anything or anyone by me without me introducing myself! Your attention is what I prefer over toys, I don't even know what those are yet. I can be a little head shy especially when telling me to sit with a treat over my head, but I will sit. The head shyness will eventually go away once I am used to it. I just need to learn what it is like to be a house pet. Can you show me?
How do I act when I meet new people? I'm friends with everyone!
Tips and Tidbits:
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
