Pet of the Week: Otis the Viszla

Nicholas and Otis

Our pet of the week, Otis, is owned by Hartz employee, Nicholas. Here’s what Nicholas has to say about his special pup:

“Otis is my one year-old Viszla who loves to howl. I can’t remember how or when we found out that Otis howls, but he will howl if I make a howling noise, a tornado siren goes off, or if another dog howls. My dad lives in a small town in Wisconsin and they have a daily noon siren test. When we’re visiting, Otis howls with my dad’s lab/husky mix, Chester. Otis also has a toy monkey that howls when tossed around. Most mornings, Otis can be heard throwing his monkey up in the air and pouncing on it to make it howl. After a few howls by the monkey, Otis typically joins in. Its very funny to see Otis and his monkey howling together!”
