Otis was found as a stray and brought to a shelter. He has lived in his new home for many years. His people wanted to know what happened to him. How did he become a stray? Otis answered, “I lived with a family with many kids. We were at a large field while the kids played ball. Everyone was loading the gear into the station wagon. I saw another dog and ran off to play. We were playing for a while and when I looked up the station wagon was gone. I think they forget me by accident. I then went looking for them. I thought I knew the way home. I went on a very busy road and then I got picked up and ended up in the shelter. I don’t think my people knew to look for me there. They for sure missed me.” After, I was told that Otis does love kids and that he had been hit by a car the day he got brought to the shelter. It seemed Otis had blocked that part out, but he remembered the busy road!
