All about Ozzie

This sweet boy arrived in our care on October 24 and is settling in nicely. He is playful, full of puppy energy, and made fast friends with the resident Newf at his foster home.  Ozzie could happily join a family with another very well socialized adult dog and will benefit from having a four-footed playmate.

This young fella has not received much in the way of training so we are starting with the basics with him-- housebreaking, crate training, and basic commands. His perfect forever family will have the time and energy to do all of the training that a young pup needs, but with a 10-month-old bouncing ball of energy. 

Ozzie has not had many opportunities for socialization so it will be essential that his adopters have the time to get out and explore with Ozzie to help him learn all about how to be a well-mannered dog. 

Ozzie lived with 2 cats previously and his owners report that he chased them. He would be best in a home without cats. 

More information will be posted about Ozzie as we get to know him better.

To be considered for adopting a dog through Newf Friends please submit a completed application, which can be found on the CONTACT US/FORMS page. Before completing an application or emailing us with questions, please review our FAQ page.  As outlined on our FAQ page, applicants who do not meet our adoption requirements (ie. no fenced play area, living in an apartment building, having young children, etc.) will not be considered -- please do not email us asking us to make an exception.
