Hello everyone, I’m Otis! Unlike my other namesakes, I’m not a singer, publisher, or an athlete. I’m just a large guy looking for a human to take a chance on me. You see, I was originally found as a stray in rough condition. My skin was red and bleeding, very itchy, and missing most of the fur on my back and hind end. But the worst part? I didn’t know human kindness. I most likely have been on my own for quite some time and that takes its toll on a fella. Now that I’m at the NACC, the staff has shown me that I shouldn’t be fearful and can start to trust again. They’ve been giving me medicated baths, lots and lots of treats, and a back scratch here and there. My ideal home would be with adults only who can help me acclimate to indoor living. I’ve even met a few dogs here, and don’t mind them as long as they’re respectful. I’m just a lonely heart who would love someone to build a forever bond with. Could you be that person for me?

If you would like to meet Otis stop by the Norfolk Animal Care & Adoption Center at 5585 Sabre Rd., Norfolk or call 757-441-5505.
