Otis's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Otis's Story...
Otis was saved by the Tri-County Humane Society in St. Cloud. He came to their shelter a little over a month ago severely emaciated and in poor health. He lived with one of their fosters and gained some weight and got lots of TLC. Due to Otis needing some special attention and wanting to make sure that he got a great home he was moved into our rescue about a week ago! Otis is a very sweet and affectionate boy, whom we guess his age to be about 6 years. He gets along great with the other pug in the foster home! Otis loves to lay on anything soft - a bed, a dog bed, a lap...as long it is soft and cuddly he's there! Otis knows how to sit, stay, shake, lay down and speak!

Otis's foster parents are working with Otis on food aggression. He takes treats very nicely, but when it comes to meal time he doesn't like anyone (animal or person) around his bowl. He has done some marking in the house, but now that Otis is neutered and in a loving foster home we are hoping this habit will decrease or cease all together!

Otis has a bald area on his tail, which will likely remain like that. The vet believes this may have been caused by being so emaciated for so long and that the hair will not grow back.

Overall, Otis is a wonderful, loving boy who is looking for a wonderful furever home! Could you be that home?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Otis, a Hinckley Pug dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pug for sale in Hinckley, or seeking a Pug dog from a breeder in Hinckley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hinckley already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hinckley breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pug breeders who help with Pug rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hinckley paves the way for another one to be saved.
