found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Sadly, Otis came to us as an unwanted stray from a rural pound. How he wound up there is anyone’s guess but it is definitely no fault of his own. Otis has been a joy to foster and gets along great with his foster dog friends. How someone could not want this fun loving cutie is our question. However, we now look at this as an opportunity for Otis to find a forever family like he so badly deserves!
Beagles are known for their good nature and love for the outdoors. They are also scent hounds that love to track with their nose. Otis is interested in following new scents as we have discovered and has also attempted to dig a few times in the yard. We would hate for Otis to wind up a stray again so he will need to remain leashed on walks so he cannot be tempted by a good scent and have owners with a securely fenced yard so he cannot escape. Otis is not much of a barker rather he wags his tail vigorously and smiles at you until you let him in or play with him. Otis has proven to be a real sweetheart and we believe he would fit in with many different types of families.
Otis will need to maintain an active lifestyle with his new family to help keep him entertained and in shape. He does great on walks now with a little guidance. Proper training will need to be continued as Otis matures into an adult dog. As Otis is also very young and learning still so much from the world around him in is important proper training be in place. Otis is very treat influenced and would do amazing in a positive reinforcement type obedience school with his new family. Otis may have had a bad start to the beginning of his life but with his positive attitude we are confident nothing will hold him back!
Otis is great in the car and with his smaller size he is a perfect travel companion. He is up for any adventure so he would love to accompany you on your outings and hopefully a walk around new places (and therefore new sniffs) would accompany the outings. He is a good walker and even though his legs are short he can keep up and set a good pace. Otis would do well in pretty much any home situation as he is quiet and small. He would prefer a fenced in yard for quick bathroom breaks and running around but this is not a substitute for daily walks, so an apartment or condo would also suit him. As long as Otis is loved, exercised, and played with he will be happy wherever his family lives.
House training has not been much of a concern, at the beginning there were a few accidents but Otis has quickly learned that outside is where he needs to go. Otis will need structured potty breaks until his new owners are sure he is good inside. Otis is also crate trained and is used to resting in his crate at night and when we are away from the house. We have also introduced Otis to some basic commands such as sit, stay and come. Overall, he is quick to learn and should have no problem acing obedience school with just a little of his owners time. We are excited for Otis to find his forever family that will give him these opportunities.
Otis came to us a little possessive of the backyard however since being fixed we believe these behaviours will quickly diminish. Otis has never fought for toys and is open to sharing which are great signs if he would be an addition to another home with dogs already present. Otis is also easily entertained with the most simplistic of toys such as an empty water bottle on the floor. We feel Otis would do well with children and other pets as long as the proper rules are set. Overall, Otis is just an amazing guy that will undoubtedly bring you smiles everyday. Do you think Otis could be your new best friend???
