Are you looking for a sweet, well-behaved dog to add to your family? Meet Ozzie! This middle-aged Bichon mix is available for adoption through No Dog Left Behind.
My name is Ozzie. I’m a Bichon mix about 8 years old. My foster mom calls me “little dude”. She loves that I’m 100% house trained and don’t chew on anything other than my toys. I also like playing tug with the fleece rope. Last year, the vet said I had diabetes. I get insulin shots twice a day, but they don’t even bother me.
I know my name very well. My foster family enjoys being able to walk me without a leash. If I get side tracked smelling something good, they just call my name and I come running. In the evenings, we all have a treat while relaxing on the couch and watching TV. I really like this snuggle time.
I’m pretty easy to take care of. I LOVE being around people. If I could sit on a lap all day, I would! Did I forget to mention how much I like car rides? Riding with the wind in my hair feels amazing. Don’t let the fact that I have diabetes scare you. Insulin only costs $28 a bottle, and a bottle lasts 3 to 4 months. That’s less than 50 cents a day! My original owner passed away and my foster mom has been great, but I sure would like a permanent home.
Ozzie is available for adoption through No Dog Left Behind in Brooklyn Center, MN. If you’re interested in adopting him, visit the website and fill out an adoption application.
