Otis is a very peculiar dog. He seems to be somewhat of a diva. He cries if you leave him in the house, but he also cries if you take him in the car with you. He just doesn't know what he wants to do. He likes to play, but is no where near the high strung energetic Jack Russell type. He would much rather cuddle under blankets between your legs than play all day. He is very good about doing his business and doing tricks as well. He does like to jump up at visitors to climb in their laps after he has gotten a few barks in. He does shed if he gets nervous, but otherwise has a nice smooth coat that is not too bad to manage and does not require brushing. He does get jealous of the other dogs being brushed and thinks he needs to be made handsome too. He is a good little guy to have around especially for someone who may be older or lives by themselves. He doesn't adore kids but he would never hurt them. He is very gentle and sweet dog to have.
