Otis is a 2.5 year old, low-energy, standard Aussie who weighs in at 43 pounds of total love bug. Otis is a shy introvert – he loves his people, but is hesitant in meeting new ones. He loves to go in the car where he sits quietly until you arrive, and then he hops out ready to see things! His foster parents take him to breweries and on walks, and he loves to go and quietly watch the world from underneath the table. He walks well on a leash, but is continuously working on his confidence and experiencing new things that may otherwise be scary at first.
Otis needs time to learn the rules and routine of the house and patience while he gets to know you and feels comfortable. Once he knows he can relax and enjoy being spoiled with attention, he loves binging on Netflix, snuggling with his humans on the couch, and giving the best happy wiggle butt! He gets along with the resident dog, follows him around, and sleeps right next to him, but hasn't really figured out how to play yet.
Otis knows sit, shake, and wait. He likes it when you feed him and stand close so he feels safe to eat his breakfast and supper. He is house-broken and crate-trained, but his foster parents give him full run of the house even when they are gone – he is a perfect gentlemen and waits patiently on the couch with his favorite squeaky toy.
His foster parents think he would do well in a quiet home without miniature humans and he would enjoy a doggy companion. He has not been around cats with us. With time, Otis is a happy, follow-you-around-the-house (except for the bathroom-it is scary in there) kind of guy who just wants love.
Otis is being fostered in AUSTIN, TX and is available for adoption in Texas only. He is microchipped, up-to-date on all vaccinations, and on monthly Heartworm preventative. His adoption fee is $275 plus required sales tax.
