Learn the history of the Otus Fellowship

A proud history.

Established in 2007, the Otus Fellowship was named to honour one of our champion stud dogs, Otus, who is a living legend at Guide Dogs Victoria. Otus’ first litter produced six Guide Dogs and one Pets as Therapy dog.

Otus officially retired from the breeding program in 2004 at the age of 10 and a half years, He was honoured in November 2004—receiving a medallion from the Board of Directors—and is incredibly fondly remembered by a large number of Guide Dogs Victoria supporters.
