  Meet Otter!

Otter came from an Amish auction in to our rescue. Otter is a sweet quiet fellow. He doesn't seek out your attention on his own but if you call him he will come and he does enjoy a cuddle once he is settled in with you.

Otter needs someone with patience and love. He turned 7 years old in April so he has a lot of unlearning to do about living in a cage all his life before now. He is working on his housebreaking skills and doing pretty well but he needs to be kept on a schedule of getting out at regular times so he doesn't make mistakes. He is just learning to be a pet and understand that people are for loving!

Otter weighs about 9-10 lbs. and he is neutered, microchipped and up to date on all his vaccines. He is heart worm negative and takes heart worm preventative.

Otter is being fostered near Chicago, IL.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Vicki at vboneill@optonline.net.

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.
