Otis the Handsome Hound: A Laboratory Dog Rescue Story – Dogster

A dedicated yoga practitioner, photographer Robert Sturman is known for his portraits of this ancient practice – whether it’s yogis perched on rocks surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, African orphans in Kenya, San Quentin Prison inmates, U.S. veterans or breast cancer survivors. His beautiful work tells human stories that bridge different people from all walks of life.

But after he adopted his dog, Otis, he added a new subject to his work and humanitarian efforts: laboratory dog rescue.

The Beagle Freedom Project rescues dogs from animal testing

Otis was rescued by Beagle Freedom Project, the world’s leading organization for rescuing and rehoming animals used in experimental research. Although Otis looks like a Beagle, he’s not – he’s an English American Coonhound.
