Story
Gelato have been apart of our family since 2018. I picked him up from the local animal shelter for my boys, who are now adults. He’s about 7-8 years old, per the shelter. He have some shots. He’s a good dog, he’s friendly a little passive. He would be the perfect pet companion, while you watch tv , he would do well with people that are at home and has a backyard. He’s very loving and doesn’t bark at all. My reason for rehoming is I find myself extremely busy and I feel I can’t give him the time he deserves, I also moved to a condo and he doesn’t have the space he deserves. If you’re looking for a loving pet this is the dog for you. I just want him to be loved as this is a difficult decision.

Story
Hello, my name is Nani the chihuahua! I am 7 months old and was born on June 18, 2023. I am fully vaccinated and perfectly healthy. I am very playful with my dog friends and love to play outdoors. I am such a goof ball and love playing with toys. Totally love chasing tennis balls and stealing everyone’s socks but hate when I can’t have more treats. I have 3 dog friends that are medium size and would get along with any dog doesn’t matter the size. I still need a little bit of help telling you when I need to go potty outside, but I’ve been working on it daily. I could be the perfect couch companion after a long day and would give kisses when invited. I know how to stay in my crate at night or when I’m home alone, but not too long because I would need a potty break. The $200 fee will include my crate, papers from vaccines, vet visit, my favorite outfits, as well as food. I am a very loyal companion with a big dog attitude and will do anything as long as you have treats.

Story
Lia is ready to find her happy ever after! Lia came to us pregnant from a hoarding situation. She had lived her life in a barn and had raised who knows how many pups without much human interaction. She is approximately 3 years old, 15 lbs and we think possibly a chi/ min pin/ doxie mix. Lia delivered her pups in her foster home and has been the best mom to them! She does take a little bit to warm up to new people but once she trusts you she will be your best friend and wants nothing more than to be loved and share the couch and bed with you! Lia does well with the small dogs she knows in her foster home but can be fearful of large dogs. Lia does chase cats. She is an easy happy dog but will take time to decompress in her forever home. She is working on leash training and is almost completely house broken. She has been spayed, microchipped dewormed and is up to date on her vaccines including rabies. If you would like to meet our mama girl Lia please fill out an application at https://www.ozziespoundpuppies.org/index.php/applications/adoption-application/ Her adoption fee is $300

Story
Sweet Eddie is still looking for his happy ever after! Eddie came to us over a year ago from a sad hoarding situation. Eddie spent his whole life in a barn without much human contact or compassion. He has blossomed in his foster home and craves love and attention now. He is still timid and afraid of being picked up but absolutely loves to snuggle with his human on the couch and sleep under the covers of his foster mons bed at night. Eddie does not like loud noises or children. Eddies perfect home would be with an older retired couple or single person that likes to travel and would take Eddie wherever they go. He travels well in the car, but is still afraid of his leash. He has no trouble riding in a pet stroller though! Eddie is house trained but does have occasional accidents. He is neutered microchipped dewormed and up to date on his vaccines including rabies. He had his teeth cleaned and a few extractions when he first arrived. He is about 6 years old now and is ready to fill your heart and home with love! If you are interested in Eddie please fill out an application https://www.ozziespoundpuppies.org/index.php/applications/adoption-application/ Adoption fee is $300

Story
Corky is a feisty ten years young lady who enjoys sitting on the couch watching TV or in your home office while you are working. She walks well on a leash and looks forward to her daily morning walks and is very polite when meeting other dogs. Corky naps most of the day and after dinner she loves to play & run around. When it’s time for bed, she has her own dog bed but she would prefer to sleep in bed with you if allowed. Corky gets along with other dogs, cats & chickens, but she can become jealous when her person is giving them love & attention. While Corky loves her toys, she is too protective and does best without them. She knows how to do tricks for treats and has the cutest little dance! Corky needs an owner who will respect her space when she wants it and who will be assertive when she needs to be told “No”. Likely due to some past trauma, she can be a bit growly and she tends to handle life on her terms. Due to her sensitivities, she will need to be in a home where there are no children living or visiting. It may take time for Corky to feel secure in her new home but once she has decided you are her “person” and trust has been built, it will be golden. Corky is an independent doggy who has lots of love to give and she looks forward to meeting her new family.

Story
Simba is a fun boy to have around! While he's very active and loves to go for walks, he eventually settles down. He loves to be pet first thing in the morning. Actually, he likes to be pet all the time and to be right there on your lap! He's the ultimate snuggle bug! Simba is about 5 years young and is about 10 lbs. Simba is good with other dogs (though will warn others to not invade his personal space). He is house trained and knows how to use the doggie dog. He sleeps through the night with no problem. Simba is independent and decides between the living room, in his foster momma's bed or with sister Coco for his sleep each night. He enjoys playing with his toys.
