Otto is available ( Updated 03-28-2017 )
Otto is an adorable German Shepherd puppy. He is special in that he was born with Hydrocephalus ca condition that caused fluid accumulation in his brain. This has affected his sight and causes some behaviors like occasional circling, but he gets around find and doesn't realize he isn't "normal". He had a shunt put into his brain to reduce the fluid build up in the future so is really to find a special family to adopt him.
Otto has some special needs due to the shunt. One is Otto is mostly blind, but can see shadows. Another is he needs to use a harness to take walks as he can't have anything around his neck. He will need a patient owner to help train him in a way he understands. Otto loves to play with toys and is very affectionate. He is a loving boy who deserves to find a home who will understand and work with his special needs.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
