Otis is great for first time dog

Boston mix!

Otis was surrendered to us by his family. He is a very well behaved, happy and playful adult dog. His family moved to a place that did not allow dogs and asked us to find him a new home. Otis is great around children and other dogs. He is 7 yrs old, healthy, neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. We had him examined by our private vet and he's a healthy boy!! Otis is a great family dog that would do well in any home. He's the perfect dog for first-time dog owners or anyone who doesn't have the time to train a dog. Otis is a Boston terrier mix with a tail. We're not sure what he's mixed with, but he has a wonderful, loving personality. He loves to play but isn't hyper. If you live in the Los Angeles area and would like to meet Otis, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com Adoption donation $250

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.
