American Bulldog
Pit Bull Terrier, Mix

An adotable dog in Philadelphia, PA

  • Young
  • Small
  • Male

Hey! I’m Otis (A19098431)! My Pen Pal’s think I am a pint sized Pit Mix (maybe some boxer?) but who knows! All I know is, I am full of love for a lucky someone to take me in. People usually over look me in the shelter because of how well behaved I am or because I’m curled up in my blankets. I love going for walks on the leash. I don’t like to pull on the leash because I would rather be next to someone (hopefully you!) and bonding with my people friends. I am already a professional at sitting and am currently learning new things to get treats! I’m a pretty mellow guy and would love an active lifestyle and maybe a play buddy! I am tolerant of some the more pushy dogs but I would rather hang with the mellower crowd.

I’m a member of the Penpal program at ACCT, and right now I have two friends that volunteer to keep me happy and stress free while I’m living at the shelter. They do things like take me to adoption events, parks, continue my training, and do whatever they can to find the best fit family to live the rest of my years out with. If you’re interested in meeting me or finding out any additional information about me please stop by the shelter at 111 W. Hunting Park Ave, Phila. or email my foster parent at:

Are you interested in one of the dogs at ACCT? If so…
Great! First, decide if you are interested in fostering or adopting!

To determine whether you should apply to foster versus adopt, please consider the following information:

-To adopt a dog means to commit to being the primary caregiver for the dog and keep it in your possession, for yourself for the rest of its life. Adult dogs are $75 to adopt, puppies (under 6 months old) are $125- that donation covers the vaccines, microchip, surgery, etc that the dog has received.

- To foster a dog means to commit to temporarily caring for the dog/cat while also working to find the dog/cat a “forever home”/adopter. While fostering the dog/cat remains ACCT's property, but the foster parent takes responsibility for marketing the dog/cat, and doing a preliminary screening of any potential adopters. When an adopter is found, the foster parent must coordinate with the ACCT Life Saving office to approve the adopter and finalize the adoption. If the foster parent decides after time that they would like to keep the dog/cat, they must complete the adoption process and pay the adoption fee. ** Fostering is not a trial adoption.**

More about fostering:

Although previous fostering experience is not required, ideal foster care provider will have basic knowledge of animal care and training and be committed to finding their foster animal a safe and loving “forever home”. As a foster care provider, you will provide the animals with care including, food, water, shelter, training, grooming and medical treatment when necessary. ACCT will provide clinic and vet care, behavior and training resources, and adoption counseling. We rely on the foster parent to find an adoptive home for the dog/cat, but we can help! We provide adoption events for you attend, can post your foster dog/cat on Petfinder for you, etc. We cannot guarantee how long a foster dog/cat will be in your care, since you keep the dog/cat until an adoptive home is found, which can be anywhere from 2 weeks to a few months depending on the dog/cat, and how heavily you market it.
