Otto: The brightest, softest, squidgiest puppy

Posted by Brendan Cooper

Otto most definitely has that ‘spark’ we look for in our hearing dog puppies. You can see it in his eyes: they sparkle and twinkle because he’s a happy, clever puppy…

Yes, Otto is our ‘bright little boy’, as his volunteer puppy socialisers call him. He’s already shown that he can learn very, very quickly. His trainer ticked off several exercises on his very first puppy class!

And he’s so very handsome too. He’s always getting comments on his amazing looks – sturdy, strong, but supple too. This is perhaps because he enjoys bouncing around so much! He’s all rubber and springs, a bouncy little boy as well as bright!

So, he has the looks and temperament of a real superstar. But really, he’s still a lovely little puppy, who adores sniffing out his toys, playing with friends, and having snuggles. Again, his volunteer puppy socialisers say it best: “He’s the brightest, softest, squidgiest pup you could ever imagine!”

This is Otto as a very small puppy indeed. We're not sure exactly which one he is in the photo below. Why not comment and let us know which one you think is Otto?

From day one, he’s been an amazing learner. He’s already mastered the basics – sit, down, coming back when called – and it’s all looking very promising for this bright boy. Still, he manages to steal a little kiss in every now and then.

He’s an alert, intelligent character, eager to take it all in because the world is a wonderful place when you’re a hearing dog sponsor puppy!

Here are some more photos showing Otto's exceptional ability to look super-cute simply by tilting his head... 


... not to mention stunning against white:

We love Otto. He's so bright and, well... squidgy! We hope you're going to love following his training journey too. From all of us at Hearing Dogs - thank you for sponsoring Otto!

Hi, I'm Brendan. I write all your sponsor pup updates, printed and online. It's a hard life, writing about cute puppies who, with your support, will grow up to help deaf people leave loneliness behind. I am partially deaf myself, so I have some insights into the challenges deafness can bring. However, I don't have a dog of my own: I have two Maine Coon cats who are quite dog-like and take up most of my time!
