Ozzy's story:

Ozzy was dumped in my neighborhood and almost hit by cars several times. He had been wandering in our neighborhood for days. I was able to get a trap and get him off the streets. When found, he had a collar with no tags and a piece of frayed rope most likely used to chain him up. He was NOT chipped and we took him to the shelter in San Jose, Ca (off of Monterey Road) to see if anyone would claim him. Unfortunately, no one claimed after the 5 day hold period. The shelter then decided that they wanted him to be put down.

I of course would not let that happen. So, once they neutered him and gave him all his shots, I picked him up. It was clear that Ozzy had no human attention and most likely had been tied up his whole life and was always by himself. I immediately took him to a professional trainer and paid for his intensive training out of my own pocket. Brent Cooper personally did the training at Cooperhaus K9. After 2 months he is a totally changed dog. He is able to sit, stay, down stay and heal on walks beautifully. He was also able trained on obstacle courses and does exceptionally well. He wants to be with you and just wants to be loved.

I would love to keep him but I have 5 pets and I just cannot take another. I hope to find him the right home with a place where he can be free to run and have a human that loves him. He will need continued training and I can help the new owner and pay for training with Brent.
