Hi there! My name is Ottis and I came to Ruff Start from Texas originally. Well, actually - I’m still there! Since I haven’t arrived in Minnesota yet, I’m available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster-to-Adopt (FTA) Program. To learn more about the FTA program, please visit www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/fostering-to-adopt-available-animals/.


I was picked up as a stray, living on the streets of Houston, Texas not too long ago. Now I'm living the good life in a foster home until I get to Minnesota. Right now, I live with dogs, cats, and adults, and do great with everyone. I've met children outside of the home and I like them too! All in all, I'm a pretty typical puppy who gets along with everyone I meet. I'm already potty trained, which is pretty great! I'm also fairly quiet, so may do well in a home/apartment with shared walls. I'm a tad nervous meeting new people right away, but I warm up quickly! More exposure to new people and situations should help me come out of my shell even more. Once I'm comfortable with you, I'm very affectionate and want all the love and pets. 

I arrive in Minnesota on 12/04 and will need to be picked up from the Ruff Start Rescue office in Princeton, MN. Once I get there, I might require further veterinary care. Ruff Start’s veterinary suite is located in Princeton, MN, and, as my foster, you will be required to transport me to and from these vetting appointments.

To apply for this animal via our foster-to-adopt program, please submit an adoption application: www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/.
