Otis found his way home again.

Which is especially good news, considering how important he is to a young boy.

According to the grandfather, Otis has helped comfort five-year-old Carter, who has had numerous hospital visits for seizures and asthma. He is also well-known in town.
‘Otis can go to Dairy Queen and he can get a hamburger,’

Even before he went viral, he was something of a local celebrity:

‘He’s the only dog allowed to lie down in front of the county court house. He also goes to H.E.B. He’s not a stray. He’s a good dog.’

No kidding!

He’s got a true Texan independent streak.
