Hi, I'm Lisa and I will be getting my rescue boy, Otis, this Friday, but I'm here to learn all I can about this wonderful breed.

I'm not a stranger to the world of 'misunderstood' breeds. I just lost my 8 yr old Rottie boy Alex last month to cancer and while I didn't feel up to another Rottweiler this time (I was afraid of too many reminders) I did want to continue to love and support the dogs that need me most.

I'm excited and can't wait for Friday. Otis and his brother were pulled from a kill shelter in NYC almost 2 years ago as 8 week old puppies. Otis was fostered for awhile, but then his foster mom lost one of her dogs and decided to keep him. Unfortunately, now, Otis and her other dogs are not getting along so she has to place him.

Anyway, thanks for being here and I know I will learn alot from you all!


Lisa

I don't know why that pic came out so small.

BullyBreedLover, thanks for the condolences for my Rottie. I still miss him so much, but I know he's pain free now, and it's just a "ME" thing. I'm sorry for you English Bulldog's heart condition and I hope your managing as best you can for now.

Hey congrats on your new addition Otis! The pic was small, but he looks like a cutie! I'm very sorry about your rottie and I'm so glad to hear that you're adopting a dog in need! Can't wait to see more pics of Otis!!! :)

Thank you hun, He just turned 9 on Monday. He was said to die last November. I tried Chemo on him and he got very sick so i stopped. I do think the small amount of chemo i did do on him helped him though cause hes still here. He is doing well just on heat meds and steroids daily. His quality of life is good still. Im hoping he just sticks around! Congrats on the pup again!
