Otis - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan, Madison Heights, MI.

I love rottweilers. I found some gorgeous Rott Husky mix puppies at AWS well I went on there Facebook and I saw Otis and he stole my heart. I didn't think of it as fate but the more I think about it, it was fate. I met him and I was kinda scared he was going to be a very skid-dish dog but I had a day to to think about adopting him. Well the whole day hes the one I thought about. I went the next day determined to get him. After I got him he came out of his shell. Now 6 months later hes training to become a diabetic alert dog for me. Hes the smartest dog I have ever met. I don't even need a leash on him he would never leave my side. Hes the best dog ever. I didn't know it at the time but I just adopted my best friend, protector and now he will save my life countless times.
