OZZY – A COLLIE/AUSSIE MIX

Sex: Male
Color: Sable and White
Variety: N/A
Age: 3
Rescued: Las Cruces NM
Fostered: Rio Rancho NM
Coordinator: Arlene Starkey at arlenestarkey@q.com
Bio: This young man is a definite “keeper.” He is a Velcro dog, always checking to see where his humans are, but willing to go on his own while enjoying yard time. And he loves to play with other dogs. We have no idea what he thinks of cats.

He came to SWCR with little socialization or training, so he is a “work in progress,” but learns easily. His first foster mom taught him to come into the house, which at first he did not think was permitted. Now he has mastered Doggie Door 101, and happily returns on call. He is learning to walk nicely on a leash, and can be a bit of an escape artist at the front door, so some caution is needed. He is learning “stay”, particularly at doors. playing with toys (What’s a ball, tug toy or Frisbee and what do I do with them?), and loading/unloading from a vehicle. Once in a vehicle, he travels well. He is current on his shots and rabies inoculation, is neutered, and did well with the groomer. He works for treats and is a hearty eater. Ozzy would probably make a good therapy dog for he learned immediately how to deal with his foster mom’s electric cart as she negotiates around the house and yard.

He could just be the “man for all seasons” and a perfect complement for his forever adopter. For more information about Ozzy, please contact Arlene Starkey at arlenestarkey@q.com or 505-892-8538.

 
 
 
These dogs have been matched with a qualified adopter and wait only for the final details of adoption to take place.  THEY ARE CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE FOR A NEW ADOPTER TO CONSIDER.
