If you don't own a dog, at least one, there is not necessarily anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life - Roger Caras
Otis (1792)

Sweet Otis! This 10.5 year old senior is laid back, sweet, handsome and potty-trained. He is the quintessential lazy basset hound and gentleman. He enjoys lounging and sleeping on his dog bed or in his crate with blankets and pillows. He doesn't counter surf, jump on people or furniture, or exhibit any naughty behaviors (e.g. getting into trash, destroying toys, shoes, etc.). He can roam around the house during the day even when you're out running errands or at work. Otis is excellent with kids, cats, dogs, and adults. He'll greet you regularly wagging his tail. He enjoys being petted and snuggles with you on the floor. While he does enjoy lounging, he loves going on walks to explore around the neighborhood. He doesn't require it daily, but his foster family takes him on one to two walks a day with their other hound. He can occasionally tug on the leash, but will listen if you verbally correct him to slow down or stop pulling. His nose carries him along and he enjoys gallivanting. He shouldn't ever be without a leash as his focused sniffing could easily cause him to wander away. He's very much used to going in and out and wandering around at his leisure and potty outside in a fenced backyard. His foster family has gotten him somewhat used to going potty on the leash either during walks or out in the front yard. He does sit by the sliding glass door or whimper if he wants to go outside to explore, sunbathe or potty. It has lessened some as he has slowly gotten used to going out with a leash. Otis is highly adaptable to your lifestyle if you want to walk him or not or let him go in and outside a fenced yard at his leisure. Otis’s right eye has a bluish haze due to corneal endothelial degeneration. The condition is starting to develop a little in his left eye too, but it's not yet hazy. He does require muro 128 lubrication drops in his eyes several times a day to help relieve corneal swelling and prevent corneal ulcers. Otis is truly a wonderful dog and would work in a house with a single person or family with kids and other animals like dogs or cats.
