This week, we’re introducing you to Otto, a large-sized mongrel in search of a lot of TLC!

Otto is at Battersea’s London location, and can’t wait to meet the family who will help him come out of his shell.

Otto’s ideal environment

Otto, though imposing in size, is actually an anxious pooch who is worried about many things. Noise is stressful for him, so he would prefer to live in the countryside, somewhere far from the hustle and bustle of busy streets and roads.

Otto’s health

As a 2-year-old mongrel, Otto has a long life ahead of him. Be aware that adopting him means a commitment of anywhere between 8 to 12 years!

Training Otto

Otto is hoping to find an experienced owner who will know how to coax him out of his insecurities. He will need help feeling less afraid of noises, as well as other dogs. Patience and understanding is a must. In the best-case scenario, Otto will land in a home that is looking for a project and is happy to put in the time it takes to help him transform into a happy, confident dog. The results are sure to be immensely rewarding.

Grooming Otto

Otto will be a heavy shedder, but his short coat will be a breeze to groom!

Otto’s blossoming personality

Otto is still finding himself, so he’ll be happier in a calm home with people who live a quiet lifestyle. He would prefer to be the only pet in the house, so he can build his confidence step by step. His friendly, playful, and willing personality is sure to make the right owner very happy.
