We came home the other day from picking up Mason from his neuter appointment and found Otis hanging out in the street in front of our yard. He did not put up any sort of resistance to Whitney throwing a leash around his neck, and has not done anything but wag his tail since we got him in. We think he’s 7 or 8 months old, and 50 lbs I’m guessing. He has an extremely soft coat, and the little bit of black he has makes him look like he has an eyepatch. We haven’t introduced him to the other dogs just yet, but he doesn’t seem traumatized or show any signs of the alpha gene.

We have decided that if we find a dog that’s not fixed running loose around our neighborhood, we aren’t going to try to find the owners until we get it fixed, and only if it doesn’t show any signs of abuse. Some people might disagree and say that it’s just fine to let them make babies all over the neighborhood, but those are the people responsible for the hundreds of strays we see living miserable lives every month.

The way Otis was chilling in front of our house did make me wonder for a second if the word was getting out in the neighborhood about us though…it definitely seemed like he was waiting for us 🙂
