This is the information we received from Otis' current owner:

Happy high-energy puppy looking for a home! Looking for space to roam and an owner to love and train him. Otis grew up in a house of college senior boys with another dog his age and me as his trainer and owner. He is housetrained and knows basic commands. He is smart and picked up quickly on the different commands I taught him. Fetch is his favorite and he will chase a tennis ball until your arm gets tired.

Unfortunately, as a recent college graduate, work has brought a move across the country and I have been unable to keep him in a steady environment and a home he's familiar with. I moved 5 months ago and since then Otis has lived with a collection of friends and family members. Moving around has been hard on him and he has had a few skirmishes with other dogs, because of both dogs trying to be the dominant dog of the household. Otis is a loving companion and faithful dog. Finding him a new home is an absolute last resort for me as I love him very much. With his best interest in mind though, I need to find a new family with whom he can thrive in a one-pet household.

Otis needs some time spent in training and space to release his puppy energy and to be the sweet hound dog he naturally is!

About Austin Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Austin Dog Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and re-homing shelter dogs in Austin, Texas and the surrounding areas.

Since 2006 we have found almost 600 dogs forever homes! We can always use donations and volunteers, so check out our website at if you want to help!

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt from us, you'll need to fill out an application on our website at We require a vet reference. Renters must have written permission from their landlords in order to adopt from us.

If your application is approved, we'll come to your home for a visit. This is just to be sure that you live in an environment that is safe for a dog.

After your application has been approved and your home visit has been completed, you're ready to adopt. We require a $165 adoption fee and a signed contract at the time we release the dog to your care. You can change your mind within three days for a refund of your adoption fee. Should you change your mind after the three day period, we will not provide a refund.

If you ever decide to give up guardianship of a dog adopted from us, for any reason, you must return the dog to our care.
