My name is Otis.   I am a handsome (approximately) three-year old pit bull mix.  I am looking for a specific home – one with no kids, cats or other dogs.  I am a sweet, energetic young man who would love an active family.  I am sweet and affectionate but also love a good game of tug-o-war.  I love going for walks and would even make a good running partner.  I would love to find a family of my own!


I was left all alone in the house when my family moved away.  I was hungry, alone and sad until neighbors called the authorities and reported that I was alone.  I ended up in a shelter where I unfortunately was running short on time. Luckily Janine saw my story and brought me to Speranza.

I am a good dog, but could use some refining when it comes to my manners.  I walk at a nice pace when on leash, but every once and awhile I playfully tug on the leash.  I am eager to please and take treats nicely, which is perfect because I am looking for a family that will help me learn obedience.
