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 but can be a little intimidated at first by those larger than he is. He does very well in his foster home with dogs his size. 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!). 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 info@caninelifeline.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.

About Canine Lifeline

About Our Rescue Group...

Canine Lifeline is an all volunteer 501(c)3 organization with a mission to save adoptable dogs from being euthanized at shelters due to overcrowding or treatable medical conditions such as heartworm. All of our dogs are in foster homes throughout northeast Ohio.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Canine Lifeline takes adoptable dogs to Petco in Macedonia most Sunday's. We also participate in many adoption events throughout the summer months. Please check our website at www.caninelifeline.org for the most current adoption event listing.

Our Adoption Process...

All Canine Lifeline dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations including a one-year rabies, and are on monthly heartworm preventative. In the warmer months of the year, our dogs are also on a flea and tick preventative. The adoption fee for dogs 7 months up to 7 years of age is $200. Senior dogs may be adopted for a reduced fee of $125. Puppies 6 months and under are $275. Since all of our dogs come from shelters and have been stray or abandoned at least once in their lives, we want to make sure that their next home is for keeps. That’s why each adoption comes with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a perfect match before the adoption is finalized.
