Otis arrived at NCCR on 8/2/22, rescued after his owner had been evicted from a dilapidated trailer and left him behind on the property. Otis is a young adult male mixed breed, likely 2-3 years old. We’re told that he is housetrained, and is generally quiet and well behaved. Otis gets along well with most other dogs, but can make a nuisance of himself trying to hump them! This behavior should improve over time now that he has been neutered. Otis loves to go for walks and enjoys chewing hard toys. He is somewhat stressed in the shelter environment due to the noise and commotion, but he has been very friendly toward the people he has met so far. He would likely do best in a home without young children.

If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an  Adoption Application.   After you have completed your application, you will immediately get a confirmation that we have received your application. It takes a lot of time to process the applications, so we ask for your patience while we do so. If you see that the dog you were interested in has been adopted it means there were many applications for that dog and we did not get as far as processing your application before a home was found. We welcome you to apply again if you see another dog that interests you. If you have a question, please email your question to adoptions@caninerescue.org. It is much easier and quicker for us to respond by email as we receive many phone calls each day.  Completing an application does not commit you to adopt, but please be sure that you are serious about adopting and have the time and patience to raise a puppy before you apply.

We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs. Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application. Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.

Otis is kindly sponsored by: by former NCCR Resident, Romeo and his family, Charlie and Deann Sist , Suzanne and former NCCR residents, Tillie Mae and Bron Bron, Dave and Nancy Nuzzo, Joseph Incavo, Cathy and David Ferguson, and Mo and Andrew Broadbent in memory of Kofi. Thank you everyone!
