This beautiful young boy is Otis and he is such a doll - his foster mom says Otis is a really good boy! Otis is mild-mannered and well-behaved and does great with the other dogs. He loves to play so he would love a canine pal or two in his new home to pal around with. Otis came to rescue from a farmer/breeder in Tennessee who had more dogs than they could possibly care for. Mostly left to roam and breed, so the county got involved and contacted rescue for help. Thankfully, they are all friendly, well-behaved dogs, and Otis is used to living with a large group of animals and is respectful of fencing. He's also great meeting new people. Otis is learning to walk nicely on a leash and he didn't mind going for a ride in the car either. He likes being brushed and loves attention from people. Otis grew up with lots of cats running around so he does well with kitties. This is one sweet young boy and we cannot wait to see Otis get a great home of his own and a family who will love him furever - Otis is such a good-natured fellow, he should fit in just fine in any situation!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102
Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.
