We're picking up our new boy today! He's a Lurcher called Ozzy; we met him at Battersea Dog & Cat Rescue in London yesterday and absolutely fell in love! So we're going back today with our current dog, Percy, to let them meet and to take Ozzy home with us.
I want this thread to be a little progress report for Ozzy. My fiancé is planning to post a lot of pictures of him on Instagram and I'll definitely share as many as I can here too! If you want to ask any questions about Ozzy or want more pictures of him and Percy please feel free to ask!
Some information about Ozzy off the top of my head:
Breed: Lurcher, Greyhound Cross. We're not really sure what he's crossed with, but he has slightly longer fur than a purebred greyhound, and is a little shorter to the shoulder than your typical greyhound.
Age: 1 year 2 months! He's about a month younger than Percy. We don't know his exact birthday so we're going to celebrate his "Gotcha!" Day instead. :)
Fur: Tricolour. He's mostly brown on the top and white on the bottom with some black spotted around. He has some very charming white gloves and socks.
We don't know much about his history since he was passed to Battersea from another shelter who picked him up as a stray. We think he was someone's pet before though since he's absolutely fine on leash and with screens etc. He's been really struggling in kennels so we're super excited to give him a loving home and I'm personally looking so much forward to seeing him come out of his shell with us!!
Incidentally, if you're in the UK and looking to adopt, I can 100% recommend Battersea. They're genuinely helpful and understanding, and their matchmaking system is superb.
I just need to double check Robin's Instagram handle so you can follow him for regular Ozzypics, and I'll post some of my favourites here as and when. I hope you love him as much as us!!
