Pet name:
Golden Retriever-Basset Hound… what a gorgeous combo! Stubby, stocky, silky Otis was found as a stray in North Carolina. At approximately 9 to 10 years old, this 50-pound hunk is just like so many of the hounds we save; he needed to be neutered and brought up to date on vaccines and was heartworm positive. Otis crashed just before his first heart worm injection - he developed a pulmonary issue and needed to be rushed to emergency and placed on oxygen. It was unsafe to continue to treat his advanced heart worm at that point so Otis needed to head to a specialist to examine his heart. He had an echocardiogram and his cardiologist laid out a treatment plan that was safe for him.  Otis has settled right into his foster home and he has bonded with his foster mom who takes the best care of him. This shorty bonds strongly with his people and wants to be where they are. He loves his toys and bones, is treat motivated, crate trained, loves to go for car rides and walks great on a leash. Otis is a bit particular with other dogs, so would probably do best as the only dog in the house. He loves to be outside, whether it is sunning on the porch or sniffing all the good scents in the yard. Otis is a laid back, sweet hound that loves to cuddle up on the dog bed at your feet. has so much love and affection to give and worth every penny this rescue has spent on him to make him well again. Otis is still looking for his forever home.
