Ozzy is an 8 yo neutered male. He was a beloved family pet, well cared-for and received all routine veterinary care. His owner had some serious medical issues that required an extended hospital stay and rehab. She was unable to find anyone to care for him, and since her health was uncertain, she reluctantly surrendered him to a shelter in Indiana. Ozzy is a friendly, active boy. He was rather calm at the shelter when he first arrived, but without regular exercise, he became stressed in the kennel environment. Shelter life is especially upsetting for dogs that have always been household pets and a member of the family. He is good with other dogs. He interacts well with his foster family’s female and two males. The shelter said he was good with children, but his foster home does not have young children, so we would recommend his adoptive home have older children, perhaps over 12, since we are uncertain about the age range he was accustomed to. This great guy would be a wonderful walking or running partner for an active family. He enjoys exercise, like all GSPs, and he’s really at the perfect age for a GSP. He’s still very active, but a bit calmer in the house since he is more mature than a young dog. Ozzy would do well with a doggy companion, but would probably also be quite content as an only dog. He’ll just need regular exercise with his people. He is now in a loving foster home in the Indianapolis area. Transport can be arranged for adoption.
