Important Note

Otis is best friends with Cookie. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Neutered, all shots current, housebroken, good with other dogs, haven't tried cats but this breed is known to be good with cats, and a happily married male.

If you are looking for entertainment, Otis is your guy! He's one of those dogs, where there's just something about him, funny, happy, engaging personality and a constant smile that will knock your socks off! Because of his good looks, he and his dog wife, Cookie, were used for breeding until they were rescued. The two are so bonded and such a great match that they will only be adopted to someone looking for a pair.

He is confident, friendly and affectionate and he runs up to strangers anxious to make a new friend. He plays well with other dogs, loves walks, and is great on a leash. He's a very smart little dog who has proven that he learns quickly. He is fully housebroken and if you ever hear him bark, it is only because there is a very good reason. Weeks go by without a sound out of him, he is not yipper or a barker.
The vet has declared him to be, "In very good health with a strong heartbeat."

He is an alpha so he needs to be with someone who has previously owned a dog and can be pack leader. He is anxious to please but needs someone who will say "No," when he gets carried away trying to cover you in kisses. He has learned not to guard his food, but he still becomes protective over a bone or chew so should not be placed with young children who might take things away from him.

Please check out his wife, Cookie and consider if this is the pair you've been looking for. Interested adopters, please call their foster mother, Mary Ann at (949) 218-3755or email her at

The adoption fee is as second pair is $150 ...he must be adopted with his Juliet:) as a love story of Romeo & Juliet!
