This is Otto! Otto is a lovebug that can’t get enough of us! He is a super good boy who will sit excitedly and patiently while waiting for you to put on his harness and leash. He loves going out to play fetch with his tennis balls and will bring them back to you (most of the time). Otto loves attention and will squeak with excitement when he sees you. Sometimes, he will roll onto his back and ask for belly rubs.
Otto came to us from a home where he had to share everything with his sister. Now that he has his own toys, he would prefer a home where he does not have to share. Although, he may do well with a calm and understanding canine friend that will respect his boundaries.
Do you think you could be Otto’s person? Here are some ways to find out:
1.) Visit our centre to meet this pet during adoption viewings Friday to Tuesday noon to 3pm, learn more about their ideal match, and apply to adopt in person; or
2.) Submit an online application adopt.spca.bc.ca and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions an online applicant would have to be available to come in for a meet within 24 hrs.
