This beautiful boy has quite a story. His Mom is a feral dog living in Greenville and hides out from animal control. A nice young woman started feeding the Mom and trying to catch her with our help of a trap. Unfortunately, she was too smart to get in it so the kid lady still feeds her....almost 2 years later. She was able to rescue the only surviving 2 pups of a litter last winter...and found a home for one, but still had this big puppy named Otis... He is 7 months old and we now have him at the rescue to find him his forever home.
He is crate trained, and housebroken but loves to spend nice days outdoors. He is very playful and despite his 70lb. size wants to be a lap dog. He gets along well with a 5 year old child, and other dogs in the house. He is very loyal and might be a little standoffish when you first meet him, but wants to be your best friend. This is probably due to some Anatolian Shepherd in him.. Mom was also part Visla--look at his tail! Otis is a wonderful big baby that wants to become part of your family :)
