I fell for this blockheaded goofball as soon as I met him!  See more

This project isn't so much about raising money as it is about needing to find this WONDERFUL dog either a FOSTER or a HOME!

Otis, previously named Blockhead, previously named Middletown - and I think there was Goofball stuck in there somewhere as well - is in DESPERATE NEED of a place to stay!

Otis, was possibly found on Van Burenville Road near Pets Alive in Middletown, Ny.

Being a stray, Otis had to be turned in to Middletown Humane in case his owner arrived. Nobody showed up and Otis' time was up!

Pets Alive, a wonderful no-kill shelter in Middletown, Ny, is actually preparing for the winter and has to cut down on the number of dogs they take in as is. After so extremely hard work, Pets Alive was able to figure out some borrowed space for Otis to stay in for a moment. BUT THIS SPACE IS ALREADY RESERVED FOR OTHER DOGS IN DESPERATE NEED OF SANCTUARY! Otis was VERY LUCKY in that there is a few days lapse in these other dogs arriving so that he could borrow their already reserved space! If Otis were to stay at Pets Alive, it would be the death of these OTHER DOGS! And that's just not fair!

PLEASE spread the word about Otis! He at least just needs a place to crash until he can be adopted! People are willing to help transport and with expenses! We just want to help this dog live, without causing the death of OTHER dogs!

Otis isn't sure how he feels about other dogs or cats, so it is best that he go to a home without other dogs or cats - or at least a home where he can be completely, and securely, separated from them.

Otis is a huge lovebug! Upon initial arrival, he did nothing but smile and give EVERYONE kisses! Otis pulls a little on the leash, but he was also excited at the moment. He really pays attention and within moments I was able to get him to follow me around just fine. This boy is willing to learn!

His CURRENT Petfinder profile can be found here (note, this profile does NOT let you know just how WONDERFUL and AMAZING this dog is! I've had the personal experience of actually BEING AROUND this dog and he was just a pure bundle of joy to be with!):

Please help us save this life, and prevent others from dying in the meantime!

Otis is in the process of being vetted and neutered, so any financial help in that regard would be GREATLY appreciated!

Otis was JUST saved on 11/30/10, so we're all still in the process of switching him over to one of Pets Alive's shelters.
