Osbourne, aka Ozzie, is doing well in his foster home. His breed mix is anyone’s guess – possibly there’s lab or hound in there, but what we do know is that he is a great boy. Very underweight when he came to Peppertree from a local shelter, Ozzie is putting on weight (7 pounds so far!) and is very lovable and affectionate. He is a Velcro dog, wishing to be near his people. He loves to go for walks and is working on his leash manners, doing better with a harness. His foster mom thinks he would make a great hiking dog once he reaches a healthy weight. Being as he was so underweight when he arrived, he understandably wishes to munch on any food he can reach – even if it is on the counter or in your hands! On the plus side, Ozzie is completely housetrained and is very good with kids.  He is around horses and chickens and doesn’t seem to mind them. He is mostly good with other dogs, but does seem to prefer canine companions larger than he is. We think it would help him settle in to a new home if there is a resident dog with a similar temperament. We don’t know how Ozzie is with cats.
