Otter

Otter

Meet Otter! This 2-year old eager beaver bulldog mix came to us from local animal control after being found as a stray and has charmed just about everyone he’s met with his unique features and loveable personality. We don’t know much about this seal-like baby boy’s past, but from his behavior, it seems as though almost everything about living in a home setting as a family member is new to him. Our sweet little sea otter came to us noticeably underweight, with a double ear infection and a bad skin infection with open sores. His elbows have worn pressure sores from lying on hard surfaces and he initially had a hard time settling when he was out of a crate. Based on his body condition and reactions to basic situations, it seems as though someone wasn’t taking very good care of him. But this adorable aquatic creature has been a trooper and is turning into the social and playful pup he was meant to be. He tolerates ear cleanings, ear drop applications, and medicated baths like a champ. And he’s finally starting to feel better!

Otter is totally housetrained (not one accident in the house!), loves nylabones/frozen Kongs/bully sticks, and after weeks in his foster home, is starting to get the hang of snuggling. He will now slide under the blankets as if he is wrapping himself up in seaweed. His short limbs and weblike feet are mesmerizing to watch as he romps around the yard…and that sleek, round head with his sweet, sensitive whiskers…be still my heart!

Otter’s little body is jam-packed full of muscle with a hefty density reminiscent of a much larger dog – in fact, we’re not so sure he would be buoyant in open water. He has an adorably short nose, teeny-tiny chiclet teeth, and soft, silky fur. And his eyes are deep and soul searching – looking for love. Due to his size and lack of history, older kids would be best for this deserving cub.

Otter’s top 3 priorities:
1. A patient family who will give this pup extra time to decompress and go at his pace to introduce new experiences slowly.
2. A loving family with a gentle touch who will show this little man a safety and love he has likely never known.
3. A family looking for a low to medium energy dog – one that will gladly go for a neighborhood walk to sniff around, before heading back to the air conditioning.
