Otis is a 5 month old Australian Shepherd x Dachshund (we believe - we were told he is an Aussiedoodle though we feel he looks a bit more Dachshund). He is neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccines, and microchipped. 
Otis is 100% blind in both of his eyes but he doesn't let that slow him down! Otis takes a minute to learn his environment but then he will run the place as if he has always been there! 
He will need a fenced in yard to be able to safely move around. We would like to see a physical fence, we will not accept an electric fence for him. Otis must have another dog in the home that will get along with him. He loves people but he LOVES other dogs and looks to other dogs for play and what to do. He will need a companion that will enjoy his company as much as he enjoys theirs. 
Otis gets along well with cats as well, he would do fine with gentle respectful children. However, he gets a little nervous being picked up because he can't see where he is at, so he would not love a home with children that want to pick him up constantly. Otis is doing well with potty training but is still a puppy so he is still working on becoming fully potty trained. He is good with his crate and will sleep in there overnight if he knows that someone is around. He seems to be fine left alone in a crate if a radio or TV is playing though he would much prefer being with people. 
Otis is pretty good about moving around his environment and is cautious about the steps he takes but he will need a home dedicated to his safety and ensuring that there are no stairs or other dangers that he could hurt himself on by not being able to see. 
In many ways, Otis acts just like a normal dog. He occasionally bumps into things but it adds to his charm. He is a wonderful little cuddle bug that loves curling up on the couch with people for naps. He is pretty mellow as far as puppies go. We are excited to see what the future holds for him and hope that we can find him the perfect family that will love him as much as he loves them. 
If you have any questions, please email his foster mom at kelli.grazi@yahoo.com 
Otis is being fostered in Kalamazoo, MI and must be adopted from this location. Please consider this when applying for him. 

Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all animals before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the animals shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the animal is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Animals MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our animals back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted animal.

Please understand the statements about this animal are based upon the foster home's evaluation of the animal. The animal might behave differently (negatively or positively) in your home. While the animal might be good with the current foster’s dogs, cats, children, etc., it may not be with your animal(s) or children. The animal may be housebroken or litter trained in the home of the foster but may relapse in your home. The animal is represented to the public as it performs in the foster home and any statements made regarding the animal are conditional to that foster home setting. Please understand that statements made regarding this animal are simply overviews and are not guaranteed.

The Petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our animals. Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable so for most of the animals we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each animal as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our animals based on personality, not by breed label.

Thank you for looking through our list of animals needing forever homes and choosing rescue first. We appreciate you stopping by.
