Great dogs need loving, active homes

Published 2:45pm Monday, March 4, 2013


Sometimes a really great dog is just a little misunderstood. Meet Otis and Demi from Shelby Humane Society. These two good-looking black lab mixes are sweet, smart and waiting for a family to be loyal to.

They could easily be considered misfits for their previous behaviors — digging, chewing and jumping. But their actions are their words; they are trying to tell us they need something more.


Otis and Demi are looking for homes that welcome them inside to be near their people but they will need regular exercise by either playing games in the backyard, going for a walk, taking a hike or even a run. Otis is 2 years old and about 51 pounds and Demi is one year old, coming in at 60 pounds. Otis and Demi will be at their best with some basic obedience training, where they are able to show off how smart they are and how much they want to please you!
