Hi, my name is Ozark! I’m a Shepsky (shepherd/husky mix) and all I want to be is the goodest boy I can! I am very sweet, loving, goofy and will always be by your side. I love kisses and hugs and would love a family of humans that doesn’t believe in personal space. This means I need a spot on the couch right next to you!

I’m very true to my breeds and have a lot of energy; I love being outside and doing all the things! Running, walking, chasing balls or squirrels, and boy I love playing in the snow. It is important that my forever family have time to exercise me daily so I can use up some energy.

I’m very smart and learn quickly, it would be best for me to be with humans who can help me learn things and keep my brain stimulated. I used to counter surf, but my foster family has taught me that it isn’t the most appreciated habit. Sometimes, when no one’s watching, my temptation still gets the best of me! But I promise to offer up the cutest puppy dog eyes, since I know you’ll understand that I’m just a good boy who loves food. I’m very food motivated, in fact I benefit from having a slow feeder because I get a little too excited at mealtime. I love my stuffies and toys, but more than anything I just want to be by your side and giving you affection!

I’m fully potty trained, but I get a little too excited while out on leash walks if I have a lot of energy.  Foster mom is teaching me so many things - and being a good boy on leash and not pulling is one of them. I'd love a fenced in yard so I can patrol the yard and get my zoomies out there, but if you can keep teaching me leash training etiquette, I'd love to be your walking or running buddy. Let's hit some trails and check out this world!   I have been known to be fearful of men at first, but with some time we can work on that together. If there is a cat in my forever home – watch out! I have high prey drive so it wouldn’t be a good fit.

Are you looking for a smart, cuddly guy who would love to do fun activities with you and always be by your side? If yes, I can’t wait to meet you!

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
