  Meet Otis!

Otis is the sweetest and most loving Griff who was surrendered to NBGR by his previous family because they said he barks too much and they don’t have time for him. He is your typical “Velcro” Griff who wants to be next to his human at all times and then some.

Otis gets along well with and enjoys the company of other dogs. He is crate trained, potty trained and uses the doggie door. He loves going for walks, is gentle on his leash and is happy to meet strangers who greet him along the way.

He enjoys napping, hanging out and loves sleeping on the big bed with his foster mom and foster siblings. Otis greets his foster mom in the mornings by gently placing his paw on her. He also adores being petted and loved on while lounging.

Otis would do best with a family who has someone who works from home, is home most of the time or someone retired looking for a constant companion. He needs lots of attention and wants to be in your lap anytime you are sitting down.

As for barking, Otis has not been a barker in his foster home. He doesn’t bark when the doorbell rings. He doesn’t bark at household noises. When his foster siblings bark he joins in but he has not been a problem barker as reported. Our guess is Otis was not getting the attention he needed in his last home and he was not allowed to sleep in his human’s bedroom. Griffs HATE being away from their humans so barking was probably Otis’s way of letting his previous owners know he was not happy with the separation.

Otis is almost 10 years old, weighs 18 lbs., is fully vetted, micro chipped, heartworm negative and on preventative. He also successfully had a growth removed from his left hip.

Do you have a little room on your lap, a little room in your bed and a soft spot in your heart for this darling boy? He’s a really good boy who has lots of love to share.

Otis is located in the San Antonio, TX area.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at conniel@andell.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
