About Me

The beautiful Ozzy is a large and some what boisterous 11 month old lurcher lad. We can see collie, Bedlington and greyhound in his mix and maybe a bit of deerhound too!

This lad does not have a mean bone in his body and truth be told can be a bit of a wuss HOWEVER he is VERY over zealous and seriously lacks manners and at his size it can get him into trouble. Ozzy came into our care sadly as his family had to make an extremely tough decision to part with him. He was way to rough with the children in the home and had actually nipped the 2 year old in excitement.

Ozzy needs an experienced home preferably as an only dog with someone around all or most of the time in the beginning. He needs a home with the time to dedicate to help him learn manners and impulse control and to encourage him to socialise in a less boisterous manner which currently means no filter and jump up and head butt! We have allowed him to run with Lass who is very very good at teaching manners and in the main he listens and backs off and if she really tells him does run the other way but he will body slam even her when he forgets himself. He would most definitely benefit from socialisation classes and probably the kennel club good citizens classes and I can not emphasize this enough. Please do not look at that fuzzy face and think butter would not melt. As stated he is not mean but does get extremely carried away.
Ozzy can NOT be rehomed with cats and will not be rehomed with children 13 years and under and those children even then need to have had experience of living with a big boisterous breed in the past.

Ozzy is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, will be neutered before rehoming and is de flead, wormed and microchipped.

Anyone wishing to offer Ozzy a home needs to complete the pre adoption questionnaire below and must be willing to travel to Stoke on Trent to meet him.
