Wednesdays are special on Fun 107 because they are dedicated to animals in need on the SouthCoast.

Hundreds of animals need a place to call home, and we do our best to make that happen. We have teamed up with some local shelters to shine a spotlight on one lucky animal each week in hopes of finding their forever home, and this week, we hope to find this sweet dog a family.

Meet Otto. Otto is a super sweet six-year-old boxer currently living at Forever Paws Animal Shelter in Fall River. He had a home, but he was sadly surrendered to the shelter after a scary allergic reaction. The reaction was so severe that the family had no choice but to bring him to the shelter.

They were heartbroken, and hope to see Otto in a new home as soon as possible. Otto is the perfect companion.

He’s good with other animals and has experience with kids. He’s even crate trained. He is a great listener and his goal in life is to be by your side, giving you love and affection.

Forever Paws recommends that his new family will have older kids and the time and space for a larger dog. Otto will need some space to release his energy. He will be perfectly happy as the only dog or with another easy-going and friendly dog.

Does Otto sound like a good fit for your family? Interested applicants can send a completed application to asilva@foreverpaws.com.
