Meet Otis

Otis is a sweet and smart 3-4 year old min pin mix who has lived in a home environment.  As a young Miniature Pincher, Otis can be high energy, especially if he is about to go on a walk or in a car. He would do best in a situation where he is not left alone for long periods of time. Since he has been with his foster, he has relaxed a lot. Otis learns quickly.  Otis walks well on a leash and knows sit.  He requires regular walks or runs. An ideal owner would be a runner looking for a companion or an active family, probably with children over 8 years old. Like many rescue dogs, we don’t know much about his background, but he wants to please and is really motivated if food is involved. Training and one on one attention will bring out more of his personality. He sleeps on the bed and likes affection. Great dog looking for the right home. 

Otis is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, house-trained and neutered.  His new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.

Otis's adoption fee is $300.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Otis fill out an Online Application today!

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

More Info About Otis

  • Coat length: Short

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment

If an animal is on our website, it is still available but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
