Otis's Story...
Updated 3/8/15- Hi, I’m Otis! I have been in rescue for almost a year but I don’t know why! PAWS took me in last April and I had lived outside on a chain. When I came to my foster home, I was scared of the hardwood floors and didn’t have any training. Over the last year, I think I have become the perfect house pet. I LOVE people and am the best behaved dog in the house when guests come (that’s what my foster mom says). I don’t even bark! When the pet sitter comes when my foster mom is away, I am the perfect gentleman. I am crate trained and housetrained. I only play with my toys and don’t bother any of the human things (except a stuff bear that was out for Christmas…I tried to take it but my foster mom said no so I left it alone) .  I get along great with other dogs if introduced properly. I would love a playful doggie friend about my size to run around the yard with!
I weigh around 80 pounds. I have learned sit, down, and stay and would love to work some more on training! I love treats and will do anything for one. I also like to play fetch with squeaky tennis balls. You have to have two though because I don’t want to give the first one up without knowing there is a replacement.
I am a little too interested in cats so I need to go to a home without one. I am great with kids but should go to a home with older ones because I get very excited to see them and might knock the little ones over without meaning to.
I am around 4 years old so I am past the chewing on things that I shouldn’t and the accidents in the house. I am a medium energy dog so I do need some time each day to play whether that be in a fenced in yard or on walks/runs. As long as you give me time to get some energy out, I am very laid back in the house. After 7-8PM, I am ready to just lay on the couch and snooze. I love to snuggle!
If you are interested in adopting me, please go to www.pendletonpawswv.com and fill out an application today! I am looking forward to meeting you!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Otis, a Franklin American Staffordshire Terrier/Bullmastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Bullmastiff for sale in Franklin, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Bullmastiff dog from a breeder in Franklin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Franklin already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Franklin breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Staffordshire Terrier/Bullmastiff breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier/Bullmastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Franklin paves the way for another one to be saved.
