Adopt Otto and get your new best friend and perfect roommate.

This stunning boy is Otto, an energetic dog just waiting to be your best friend! He's about six to seven years old and was a rescue from a shelter after a rough start to his life. He was reported to have spent a majority of his early years chained up outside.

Now that he knows how great humans are, Otto will be your doggo shadow. He loves to play with his ball and enjoys entertaining himself outside for hours, but really, really loves when his people throw his ball for him! He carries that ball with him wherever he goes.

Otto does great when left alone at home to free roam and has perfect house manners -- no destructive behaviors, no accidents, no noise, just perfect Otto-ness, napping and relaxing while you're gone doing your thing. There's no better greeting when you come back home after eight minutes or eight hours -- Otto is always happy to see your face and will cheer you right on up after a long day. He also wouldn't mind a back scratch and a long walk and a sniff around the neighborhood.

Otto will do best in a quiet, adult-only home without a lot of visitors. He loves his humans but gets anxious with new people.

He is currently not in a home with other pets. While Otto has not been exposed to other dogs much in the last two years, he pretty much ignores them on walks and at the vet's office. He would need to meet any future canine siblings before going home with them.

Call or text The Pet Connection at 913-671-7387 for more information on Otto. He's in the Kansas City metro, but transport is available to the right home.
