Otis got loose from a screen porch on Friday evening in Sinton, Texas, during Hurricane Harvey, Chron.com reported.
Salvador Segovia, who reportedly was looking after the dog on behalf of his 5-year-old grandson, spoke to the outlet.
“I kept yelling his name and yelling his name and he wasn’t around,” the 65-year-old grandfather said.
Otis was found by Segovia before his grandchild came back, according to the report.
“Otis can go to Dairy Queen and he can get a hamburger. He’s the only dog allowed to lie down in front of the county court house,” Segovia told the website. “He also goes to (the grocery store) H‑E‑B. He’s not a stray. He’s a good dog.”
