Meet Otis, who’s all ears

Rappahannock News - - RAWL • ANTIQUES -

Hi, all. I’m a Tree­ing Walker Coon­hound. Name’s Otis, I’m 1 year old, cur­rently weigh 60 pounds, and have spindly legs and not a lot of co­or­di­na­tion yet. But when I’m an adult — we’re fully ma­ture at around 18 months of age — I will have grown into my legs and then be more co­or­di­nated. Walk­ers, as we’re called, hunt rac­coons pri­mar­ily. But we also make won­der­ful pets. We are lov­ing in­tel­li­gent, and en­joy in­ter­act­ing with hu­mans, in­clud­ing kids. With some train­ing we can even co­ex­ist with cats. What’s not to like?

One RAWL dog was adopted this week. The Rap­pa­han­nock An­i­mal Wel­fare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Rd., Amissville, is open 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Closed Wed­nes­day and Sun­day. Call 540-937-3283 or visit rawl­dogs.org.
