Christmas is a time of love and family, so why not spread the goodness that little bit further and welcome a new member into the family fold?
Meet Otter, number 9 in the 12 Dogs of Christmas series.
A long term resident of the Wingecarribee Animal Shelter, Otter the greyhound is raring to make the move into a more permanent home.
Gentle and easy going, he walks well on a lead and would make a good companion for someone looking for a gentle walking buddy.
If you are interested in meeting Otter contact the Wingecarribee Animal Shelter (located at 177 Berrima Road, Moss Vale) on 02 4868 1520.
But remember, if you are considering buying an animal as a Christmas present, have long hard think.
Every day there will be another addition to the 12 Dogs of Christmas.
