Silver dogs are great pets slider and linkMy name is Otis. As you can see, I am an older guy but I still have lots of love to give. The good thing about being older is that, well, I like to sniff around the yard and then take a nice long nap, maybe under your hammock or on the porch with you. I won’t be chewing up your shoes or ransacking the house. I do enjoy watching Jeopardy but don’t know most of the answers, er, questions. I am willing to learn with gentle guidance. My thyroid is a little underactive just like me but I have meds to help. I will bring a month’s supply with me if you take me home.

The shelter has a lot of dogs right now and I am worried that because of my age, I will not get chosen. My bones are a little creaky when I first get up so I would greatly enjoy the comfort of a soft dog bed. I bet I could find one from here to bring with me.  Most folks like the younger pups but I go for wisdom over looks every time! And remember, there is an ongoing Seniors for Seniors adoption discount. If you want to visit me, please let the nice folks at the counter know you are here to see Otis. That is O T I S which stands for Original Talented Intelligent Soul.


Love always,
