First three words: cuddly, calm, and loves humans
Ozzy is a very sweet and cuddly boy who loves to snuggle with blankets and pillows. He has very good hearing, eyesight, and sense of smell and he does tend to get some goop in his eyes. He’s happy to have a human wipe that away. Ozzy limps on his back- left leg from an injury, but we are having this looked at by the vet today (June 20). He can sometimes be a bit mouthy but responds well when you say “uh uh” or “no” firmly. He loves to receive affection and treats! He’s also a very quick learner – my old roommate taught him to lie down in about 10 minutes using treats and simple commands! With that said, he WILL try to steal your food if it’s left out, even if it’s high up on a counter. Again, he will back off when told to, but needs to be watched if human food is around. Similarly, he is still learning the difference between his own toys and furniture/shoes/slippers. He is a lot better about not chewing on things that aren’t his toys even compared to a week ago when we got him but just needs to be told what he’s allowed to play with. He’s becoming less and less destructive, but still needs a bit of time to learn. Ozzy’s learning to sit at the top of stairs before going down them and at crosswalks before crossing a street. He enjoys lots of naps! He doesn’t always eat his food and will sometimes sniff at his own poop as if he’s about to eat it – this seems like a survival thing, maybe, and I’m pretty sure he can be trained out of it fairly quickly. Above all else, Ozzy well and truly seems to understand vibes, emotions, energies, and body language. He really seems to be a human in a dog’s body looking for love and playful fun from a kind family!
