Otis is very mellow!

Mini Schnauzer!

Otis is a wonderfully friendly boy who almost didn't make it out of a very high kill shelter. He has a sweet, mellow personality and is friendly to everyone he meets. He had some benign fatty lumps(lipomas) that we had removed, and we got him a dental cleaning as well. Otis is neutered, fully vaccinated including rabies and chipped. He is a very loyal and devoted companion. He isn't barky or destructive. Otis is very smart, learns quickly and is house trained. If you'd like to meet him, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com Otis weighs 25 lbs, and is about 8 yrs old. We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $200

Foster Homes Needed

So many dogs are finding their way into shelters. Sadly, due to overcrowding, many never make it out. We can only save as many dogs as we have available foster homes. Can you save a dog's life by giving it a warm, loving home for a few days or weeks? We pay all of the dog's expenses. Your kindness will be repaid with lots of love and affection! As a foster parent, you will NOT be required to bring the dog to weekly adoption events. We want fostering to be easy and rewarding! Every new foster home is a dog's life saved!

The Adoption Process

First and foremost, complete the application here.
We then schedule a quick and easy home check. We are only adopting out to the Southern California area. We save new dogs each week, so we often have dogs that we have yet to post online.
