Otis was adopted by Zachary Young.

Original Story  |  06.14.2014

HI!  My name is Otis.  I am an 8 year old boy who was adopted 2 years ago from a Sacramento shelter.  Now the people who adopted me have decided they don’t have time to pay attention to me and have surrendered me to PROS, so I am looking for my third and FINAL forever home!

I am neutered, up-to-date on shots, and healthy.  My appearance is a bit extraordinary for a pug.  I have overheard people whispering that there may be some Boston Terrier in my background… but I am a full-blooded pug at heart!

I am very smart.  I am house-broken, and follow commands for sit, stay, down, and heel.  I am an escape artist, however, and will shoot out an open door like a lightening bolt – so my new family will have to be extra careful when opening doors.  I can be a little imp sometimes, and although, of course, I know my name -I won’t always come when called!  I like other dogs.  I love to go for walks; and I think it’s fun to ride in the car.  I am very sweet and lovable, and my favorite thing in the whole world is to have people make a fuss over me and make me feel adored.  I promise to adore you back!

UPDATE:  My foster family has been working with me on my manners and I’ve improved quite a bit.  I’ve learned to be polite when waiting for food.  And I no longer try to escape.
