This Aging, Gentle Giant is Looking for a Home
Otto is a 90 pound Shepherd/Bloodhound/Lab mix and approximately 8 years old.
He was abandoned at his former owner's place of employment after the former owner was fired from his job. This handsome boy was very overweight at 110 pounds when he arrived at Finding Shelter but is now on a healthy diet and has lost 20 pounds. He looks and feels great and has just a little more weight to lose. Otto has a laid back and sweet personality and really loves being around his people, but will nap on the couch while you are at work or running errands. He would be great in a laid back adult home or a home with gentle, older kids as he is a senior. He would be great in a home with someone who is retired and needs a buddy to relax on the couch with! Otto is affectionate and happy and needs the love of a forever home! I have met Otto several times and he is always a perfect gentleman!!
Here is a bit more about Otto that the great people at Finding Shelter would like you to know:
Major personality traits: Friendly, laid back, playful for short periods. Total couch potato!

Interaction with dogs: Playful with other medium or large dogs with similar energy level. Not recommended with small dogs.
