Meet Otto

Meet Otto
Otto is an estimated, 2 year old lab/pit mix who has been with us for nearly 6 months by no fault of his own. Otto is so friendly, loving, and does really well with children keeping in mind his size and energy. Sometimes we think he needs to remember to turn his brain on... but once he's focused, he's super smart (and treat motivated). He also LOVES making friends with the other dogs in our separated play yards, but he would likely need to learn proper manners with a canine sibling (a meet and greet is required at our shelter). Otto gave us a big health scare through the winter, but he's finally getting back up to his proper weight of 90+ pounds and is ready to find his perfect home to continue thriving! ??

Otto was suffering from loose stools and diarrhea, first thought to be brought on by the stress of the shelter environment. After his weight began RAPIDLY dropping we started trying different food options to no relief- so we ran a stool sample to our vet (normal results), and he received an abdominal ultrasound that showed enlarged lymph nodes. He was started on a round of steroids while our vet sent a gastrointestinal blood panel out. His GI results came back normal, he started gaining his weight back, and has since finished his medication! He just had his follow-up appointment, and his abdominal ultrasound looks completely normal now. Our vet believes he was likely suffering from a virus that targeted the digestive system, and he is recovering nicely! ??

Otto is neutered, microchipped, & up to date on vaccinations. If you're interested in adding this goofy boy to your family, please go to our website: www.nokillarc.org to fill out a pre-approval form (located under the adoptable dogs' section). ??
