My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

This big playful boy came to us by way of Lee County Domestic Animal Services, as they were running out of space. We often pull dogs from other shelters that don’t have the luxury of time that we do at ARC.

Ozzie is affectionate, playful and very energetic. It would be best if he went to a home that had adequate time to train him and had experience in handling large breed dogs. Our staff has slowly been socializing him with other dogs, but it’s still a work in progress. At this point, we are recommending that he does not go to a home with small children. Ozzie would also not do well in a home with cats. But… if you’re an active and energetic home with older children and the time to provide Ozzie the play and exercise he needs, you might just be a great home for him!

Why not make an appointment to visit this handsome fellow today?!

My ideal home:
I need a young and active home to keep me moving!
I'm good with:
Some Other Dogs Older Children Men Women
I'm not good with:
Cats Young Children

More about this rescue

The Animal Refuge Center (ARC) of Fort Myers is a not for profit animal welfare society dedicated to stopping the escalating cost to impound, care for, kill and dispose of dogs and cats dying for no reason other than having been born. ARC is helping to cut the large numbers of homeless animals which eventually cuts the costs to taxpayers, which to date has reached over half a million dollars a year.

ARC is a non-euthanasia organization. Once we accept an animal for adoption, IT WILL NOT BE DESTROYED TO MAKE ROOM FOR ANOTHER. We are here to help the unwanted and neglected animals who now face certain death.
