Who is the cutest pup in all the land? Well, if you’ve seen his photo- it’s clearly Ozzy!
Aside from being absolutely adorable, Ozzy also has a stellar personality that is always energised and full of pep. He is the perfect compact size, but don’t let that fool you. He is a big dog at heart!
Ozzy would be thrilled to find a home that is familiar with the demands of his breed, and can keep up with his “always on the go” attitude. Intelligent is an understatement, this boy has a wicked smart brain. He picks up on new tricks and cues like it’s nothing, and enjoys every minute of learning. Agile and attentive, Ozzy would excel at agility and other engaging dog games. He responds greatly to all forms of praise; such as food, toys, and attention.
While one of Ozzy’s all time favorite things (next to tug of war and treats) is his people, he likes to take a cautious approach in getting to meet new friends. Not to fret, he is easily won over with quick bonding exercises and a couple cookies. Even so, Ozzy will benefit from continued positive outings to help him see the world in a fresh and non-scary light. He is stellar on leash, and as previously mentioned, a quick study. Patience and praise go a long way for our precious friend.
So really, what’s not to love? You’re guaranteed to fall head over tails when meeting this guy, and there will be no looking back. Ozzy may be familiar with all species, including cats, dogs, and kids; but we feel he would do best with older children that can understand his excitable and often jumpy ways.
This puzzle-master is a must meet, so hit that link below and see if you’re a match for Ozzy!
