Ozzie is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd mix. He weighs around 50lbs. Ozzie came to Lizzy's with his buddy, both were completely shut down – had to be carried and loaded into and out of the car. Considering Ozzie has had minimal socialization experiences in his life, he has come so far in the few months that we have had him and he will only continue to improve. Ozzie does well in the car and is learning to enjoy on-leash walks. He is NOT reactive to other dogs when he sees them on walks. Ozzie is house trained. He likes to be around people and get attention, but takes him a while to warm up to a person. He does great with other dogs and cats. He is becoming more confident and playful with the other dogs, also. Ozzie is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Ozzie’s biggest challenge right now is getting to know new people and being comfortable with them, but that will get easier for him with time. Ozzie takes his ques from other dogs, so a best home for Ozzie is one with another dog-buddy who is also youngish and more relaxed than high energy. Also, the family who adopts Ozzie will absolutely have to be patient with him and understand that he will take time to relax and acclimate to new surroundings. If you give Ozzie a chance, you will have a jewel of a dog. Ozzie is looking for a foster and a forever home. Email us with questions at lizzyshospice@gmail.com.
