Relatively local applicants only please.
If you would like to meet Ozzie you must complete the Expression of Interest Form.
Ozzie has never lived with kids and does not like rough play or loud environments. Any kids will need to be teenagers or older and only if gentle and calm.
Ozzie has low to medium exercise requirements – he loves running around the park. He needs daily exercise but might forgive you if you miss the odd day as long as he gets an extra cuddle.
How is this dog on a lead?
How is this dog off the lead?
Ozzie is sometimes good and sometimes bad – we think he pretends not to hear his name being called on occasion.
Nuisance barker or destructive?
Ozzie is not a nuisance barker but will alert you to something strange – and does have a loud bark. He will let you know when the postman arrives.
Tolerance to being alone.
Yes. However, preference will be given to homes where he is not spending extended periods of time alone – we don’t want him sleeping his life away.
Ozzie is a loyal, loving and devoted companion to his owner. He loves affection and spending time with his favourite humans. He will happily shadow his owner around the garden and sit by your side while watching TV. Ozzie is not a needy dog but does love company. He really loves going to the park and other outdoor adventures. He will sit close by all day if you are patting him. You will need to watch the treats though – Ozzie loves food.
Ozzie does not like storms - he is not fond of thunder and lightning. He doesn’t like sirens either.
Ozzie will appeal to many families but ideally, he will be best suited to older folks actively looking for a loyal companion. Ozzie is an active dog so he won’t suit residents who are frail or immobile. He also needs a medium to large secure yard to explore and sun bake in. He would prefer to be an only dog so he can have all your attention but it might work with another friendly dog. His new owner will need to be actively looking for a companion to share the good times and bad.
He will not suit homes where residents are frail, elderly, immobile, very young or time poor.
Ozzie will melt your heart. He is a loyal, friendly dog who will treat you like royalty. His devotion will extend to the park where if he notices another dog coming up to you, Ozzie will return to check the situation out. Ozzie is a smart dog and rather obedient. He is social with other dogs but does not appreciate large dogs or loud rough kids rushing into his space unexpectedly and will stand his ground.
His most recent vet visit was late September 2017 for a routine check up and vaccination - he was given a clean bill of health according to his mum.
Ozzie has spent most of his life with an older couple who looked after him very well – which is probably why he is in such good condition according to his mum. After the death of his dad 3 years ago Ozzie became his mum’s loyal companion. Unfortunately, in early October 2017 she is going into a retirement facility and they won’t take dogs.
