Ozzy is a 7 year old 13 pound male chiweenie

He is a sweet sweet boy, and earned his name as his transporter was listening to some classic rock on the way to Miami, Ozzy was singing along, and his transporter decided he was "barking at the moon" and thus he had his new name!

Ozzy was brought to a local shelter back at the beginning of July, his owners brought him there to be euthanized because he was paralyzed in his hind end. The shelter asked for help and here he is! Ozzy gets around great with and without his amazing cart and does need to be expressed, but that’s super easy to learn.

Because of his injury, Ozzy does need to be expressed to go potty.  He doesn't want to let this scare you off - It is SUPER easy to learn which means he goes potty on your schedule- no sniffing around or waiting! Check out our very own Dr. Wong at Southeast Veterinary Neurology, who examined me, teach you how to express a dog!

From Ozzy:


I am Sir Speedy, and I’ve got a great set of wheels! My foster mom will tell you that I’m always on the go and up for a run around the yard, a romp with my dog friends (my current companions are cart drivers just like me) or a nice, long stroll around the neighborhood. Once I get to know you, I will shower you with kisses. I do like to use my voice, so expect to hear me announce visitors and bark when meeting new friends—be they human or canine. Best feature? Well, just look at my photo. As my foster mom says, “One look at those perky ears, and you can’t help but fall in love!”
