My story

Meet Ozzy!

Ozzy is CUUUUTE & he KNOWS it!
Let's get right into it! This guy's ideal home is somewhere with no kids & no other dogs. I know that's a bummer -- but don't let it sway you from this awesome guy!

He is so smart!! Learns quickly & aims to please.

He's nonreactive to other animals. What does this mean? It means when you're out walking him or hiking or whatever -- he's not going to be lunging & going nuts when he sees another dog. He has played well with some dogs but can also be selective with others so he is best as your sole companion. He definitely wouldn't be a dog you could take to the dog park.

He thrives with exercise, training & structure! He is great in a crate, knows the doggie door, great on a leash. LOVES to play & just an all around awesome dude. He would do so well with someone that was active, played ball & games with him every day and worked with him daily! He's a WORKING DOG. Aussies were bred to herd cattle. He'd be amazing with a job like that! Since a lot of us don't have cattle -- we have to get creative to keep him stimulated and his little mind working :) There are SO many fun ways to work him and make sure he gets the exercise he needs -- no cattle required!

His adoption fee is waived to the right home! Sorry -- but we are pretty adamant that he needs a house with a yard -- not an apartment! He is neutered, vaccinated & microchipped.

**Ozzy is currently living with a dog trainer. Anyone interested in adopting will have the opportunity to meet with his trainer- see what he's learned. You must be willing to continue with his training so Ozzy can continue to be the well rounded dog he is! Ozzy may look cute & like a cuddle but if you only plan to cuddle & coddle him he is not the dog for you! Again, he is a working dog! If you're not willing to commit to training-- move along! Ozzy will not be the dog for you!**

You can email his dog trainer at pawcreektraining@gmail.com.

Thanks! :)

More about this rescue

The Pet Knot was forged to combine efforts of like-minded rescues and volunteers humbly striving to make a dent in the urgent pet over-population crisis. Our talents and strategies promote animal adoptions through online, in-store, and boutique-like options for adopters. All animals receive the highest level of medical care and grooming. Animals also receive appropriate adjustment time and basic social skills in foster homes in preparation for a new home environment. We help all animals including seniors, special needs, and those seemingly unadoptable cases and work diligently to place each in the most appropriate permanent home possible no matter how long it takes. We call ourselves The Pet Knot because not only do we connect people with pets, we keep people with pets. The Pet Knot consists of The Pet Knot and Paw Promise animal rescue working together.
