OTIS HAS AN ADOPTION PENDING. Meet Otis, a bright-eyed and alert 3 year-old Chihuahua/Spitz mix male who was turned into an overcrowded county dog shelter by his owners who could no longer afford to care for him and his brother. Otis came to Canine Lifeline so he would be able to take his time finding the perfect new home. This little guy is delightful and has been a perfect guest in his foster home. Otis loves to snuggle with his human friends and likes to dole out lots of kisses too. He gets along well with other dogs of all sizes. Otis has excellent crate manners and walks nicely on a leash. When taken outside for potty breaks, he pees and poops almost immediately when on the leash which makes cold weather outings much easier. Otis is almost all white except for some cute black spots on the backs of his ears (see pic!). He was adopted recently but was unhappy as the only dog in the home and barked a lot when no one was home causing the neighbors in the adjacent condo to complain so he came back to us. Otis would do best with another canine pal in his new home and a family who is not gone for long workdays. He spent a few days at doggie daycare during his brief period of adoption and had a great time there. Otis weighs about 17 pounds and his adoption fee is $200. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in Otis. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there. Please visit our website at www.caninelifeline.org to see more photos of Otis and to submit an online application.
