Otis is a wonderful loving boy and a ready-made pet who is great company :). An owner turn-in at a high kill shelter in Houston, all he knows is being a house pet, and it shows .Sweet and social, this three to four year old is a classic great basic dog..... loves cuddles, to lounge on the couch, to play ball with you (always brings it back and drops it!) and knows basic commands. He is a well meaning and earnest boy, and easy to fall in love with. He does have inexperience and social anxiety when it comes to other dogs and likes to chase small furries (he has prey dive and is a proven ratter), so we do recommend that he be a only pet. He is on the other hand very used to living in a home, is fine around kids, good off lead and is overall most companionable. Although not a great choice for the dog park, Otis would do fine as a first time pet and will mix well in a number of family scenarios.

THE RIGHT HOME for Otis can be many things, from an athletic single to being a homebody within a full family, but we do recommend you be active and fit, as Otis is a strong boy and will be at his best when well exercised. The additional socialization that provides will be to his benefit, for it is our suspicion while expert at house life he hasn't gotten out and about a lot in his life and will prosper from the exposure. He will do great with kids, but ought be the only pet in the household. He can adapt easily to a 9 to 5 lifesyle and crates well, although if under-exercised and under-stimulated will get noisy.

Applications are available on the southpawsexpress.org website or by contacting Lucy at maramuser@gmail.com. His adoption fee is $450

About Southpaws Express

About Our Rescue Group...

Southpaws Express is the brainchild of highly rescue-experienced women, one coming from a southern shelter background and the other from New England breed rescue. We try our best to combine our experience to do right by dogs in high kill shelter regions while paying tribute to the New England protocols that put dog rescue so successfully on the map.

We are, and prefer to remain, small, pulling only a few dogs at a time and offering individualized attention to our prospective adopters. A commonality we share is that we are both "big picture" people, a core belief being that every dog we take in, and every adoption we complete, should move rescue forward. We believe in great ambassador dogs for rescue, happy adopters, and an adoption process that is both experienced and caring. We are not rigid or inflexible, and it is always our goal to build advocacy for rescue. We want you to have a good time!

Be it through adoption, volunteerism or education, we welcome you to our family!

Our Adoption Process...

Southpaws Express is a progressive rescue that prides itself on an intimate, individualized application process. We strive to make it as friendly and personalized as we can, and assist with good matching advice and direction, catered to the individual....the individual dog and adopter. Our application is available on the southpawsexpress.org site, and introductory emails always are welcomed to Lucy at maramuser@gmail.com.
