Ohhhh, look! Puppies! We are pleased to introduce Otis, a really adorable puppy who is looking for his new Forever Home. Otis and his brother, Angus, were turned in at the shelter for an unknown reason. ESRA was at the shelter the day the puppies became available, and they are now thriving in foster care. Their foster family is diligently working on housetraining skills and basic indoor manners. Outside, of course, it is a free-for-all with puppies romping, play-fighting, chewing on toys, playing tug-of-war, and exploring their new territory. Both boys are very respectful of the older, resident dogs. While we are listing them separately, these boys are truly bonded and can play and entertain each other for hours. They would love to be able to spend the rest of their lives together in the same Forever Home. Do you have room in your heart and home for both of these loving boys?

Otis loves to cuddle, and he especially loves belly rubs. If he is on your lap, he will flip over so you can reach that magic spot better! He is not shy or timid in new situations or around new people. Otis is a typical loveable, active pup. He loves to play with chew toys, stuffies, and balls. He will chase a toy if you toss it, but he has not yet figured out that he should bring it back for another throw. Like most puppies, Otis has bursts of energy and then will fall instantly asleep for a nap.

Otis has been neutered and microchipped for safety. He has been dewormed and has received both his first and second sets of puppy shots. His new Forever Family will need to be diligent about obtaining the last set of puppy shots and ensuring that he is properly licensed for his new location.

The perfect Forever Home for Otis will be one that has a large, secure yard for him to play in. He needs a family who will include him in every aspect of their daily activities. Obedience classes are a must for Otis to help him learn how to become the best Springer possible. Otis absolutely needs a canine companion of similar age, size, and energy level in his new home.

Important notes about puppies: We do not place puppies as presents or surprises. The entire prospective adopting family needs to come to Bakersfield to meet Otis. Also, please remember that puppies require a lot of care, attention, and training, and they do chew on things. The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment.

Please note that an approved Adoption Application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.
