Ottie came to us from another rescuer, and she absolutely loved him.  He is a really sweet boy, and he usually seems to be pretty happy no matter what is going on.  Ottie is pretty laid back and seems to adapt to whatever you need him to do.  What he really wants is a family with lots of love and plenty of time to spend with him.  Could that be your family???

If you think Ottie might be the perfect pup for you, please go to and complete your adoption application online.

We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits.  You can expedite the process by providing accurate email addresses for all your references.  Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process.  We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible.

When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if Ottie picks you too.

If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee, and an adoption contract to be signed.

Please feel free to email [email protected] if you have additional questions.
