When I fostered seven Pit Bull puppies last year, I had no intention of adopting any of them. Of course, this is what foster moms always say. They were sweet pups and looked like little pink piglets. They had a wonderful time tumbling, chewing, and playing tag. I convinced myself that I loved them equally, although one little boy, Otis, had the most attentive eyes and he seemed thoughtful in a way I found very appealing. But I was strong and took them all back to the MSPCA at Nevins Farm to be adopted. But I kept thinking about Otis and his little eyes and periodically I would check to see if he had been adopted. At the last minute his adoption fell through and I decided to stop torturing myself - I brought him back home that evening!
A year older now, Otis seems to be planning on a career in gymnastics. Or acrobatics. He is full of energy and good intentions. He has a very sweet disposition, never argues with his three canine family members, is always ready for a snuggle, a run, or a leap in the air. He likes cats, ignores rabbits and parrots, and enjoys playing tag with the horses. He is ALWAYS in a good mood, doesn't hold grudges, and is game for any adventure. Otis is a very happy dog.
