Ozzie's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Ozzie's Story...
This precious, itty-bitty baby boy is likely only going to be a medium-sized boy a year from now (he currently weighs 12 pounds at 4 months old). This fuzzy white ball of fur was literally found IN the highway in late September by a Good Samaritan. Thankfully, he was rescued before he could become a speed bump or before any other harm came to him.


Upon his arrival at Tassie's Hope, Ozzie headed straight to the vet to be dewormed, checked out from nose to tail and begin his puppy boosters. After performing several tests, our veterinarian has determined that Ozzie is likely partially or entirely deaf. Don't let this fool you - it doesn't slow Ozzie down one bit! He's picking up quickly on hand signals and other cues, and will continue to thrive with further obedience training.

. Since Ozzie's initial vet visit, he has received one more round of puppy boosters and a second deworming. Our adoption fee of $200 covers the cost of the care Ozzie has already received along with one more round of boosters, micro-chipping and Ozzie's neuter. Per our vet, Ozzie was most likely born in mid-July.


Ozzie will need a forever home where there is room for him to "stretch his legs". He would acclimate well to a variety of home environments. If there are children and/or other dogs to play with, the more the merrier! Ozzie would also do well as an only dog in an active home.


**Applicants for Ozzie must have a verifiable history with a vet.** If you would like to bring this ball of happy cuteness to your home, please complete our online adoption application:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ozzie, a Carrollton Australian Shepherd puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd for sale in Carrollton, or seeking a Australian Shepherd puppy from a breeder in Carrollton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Carrollton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Carrollton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Carrollton paves the way for another one to be saved.
