Pet of the Week - August 20, 2012

  • Written by Homeward Pet Adoption Center
Otis POWAre you looking for a well-mannered and easy-going dog to call your very own?

We’d like to introduce you to Otis.

This handsome fellow has quickly become a shelter favorite, and although he has many friends here, he’d really like to go home soon.

His dream is to find a loving family and a cozy place to spend his golden years.

Although Otis is about 12 years old, he wants everyone to know that age is just a number. He’s still quite spry and is as active as dogs who are many years his junior.

He weighs 58 pounds, which is a great size for someone who’s looking for a dog that’s neither too small nor too imposing.

Otis seems to do well with polite dogs; however he prefers to avoid those who are pushy and headstrong. He excels with canine counterparts that possess good doggy manners and appreciates relationships of mutual respect. Otis thinks cats are just fine.

He has some arthritis and appreciates respectful handling, Otis is a true gentleman who is ready to make someone’s life complete. Come look in his soulful eyes and be prepared that they may indicate you’re the chosen one. Will you give him a chance?

Come meet Otis at Homeward Pet. We are located at 13132 NE 177th Place in Woodinville and are open for visitors between noon and 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.

If you aren’t ready to adopt a new family member, you can still help us care for the dogs and cats at Homeward Pet. Shelter Essentials are items we use daily, 365 days a year, to care for every cat, dog, puppy or kitten from the moment they arrive at Homeward Pet until they find their forever homes.
