Otis is an active staffy X who needs to get to know you slowly, over a few visits. He loves his walks but pulls on lead and lunges at cars and passing dogs if they are too close. He enjoys being patted and cuddled when he knows you. He sits on command and is easy to train. Otis would be best in an environment where he does not come across many dogs or cars during his exercise. Walker says: "I do try to take them out for fairly long walks – you can feel their anxiety levels reduce the longer they’re out of the shelter, and their behaviour improves immeasurably." He has a short coat and weighs 22kg.
