Posted Breed: Chow Chow / Mixed (medium coat). Ozzie is a sweet, senior chow mix who found himself on death row at a local county shelter. Frisco Humane Society stepped in and gave this boy a second chance. Now that he has been treated for his heartworm and ear infection, he is ready for his new human best friend. Ozzie is a calm, quiet and sweet boy who once he has bonded with you he will quietly follow you room to room and lay down where ever you are. He will not disturb or bother anything in your home, so his foster mom does not crate him. He did spend the majority of his years unaltered, so his foster mom keeps a belly band on him in the house just incase he has a lapse of judgement. He is doing much better on his house training, and corrects very easily. Ozzie is friendly with dogs and cats, but would do better in a cat only home. We think maybe at some point in his life he went without food, and can be testy about food with other dogs around. However, he will happily share with the cat...go figure. Many would overlook and older dog like Ozzie, that carry's a bit of baggage from his neglectful past. So before you move on to the next profile, let us show you our favorite quote! "Shelter dogs aren’t broken. They’ve simply experienced more life. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell, stories to write. The ones dealt a bad hand, and who responded with courage. Do not pity a shelter dog. Adopt one." ~Pedigree Ozzie is not perfect, but if you give him a chance, he promises to love you unconditionally for the rest of his life.(: For further information please email the address in the box to the right. Anyone interested in our dogs/cats will be required to fill out an adoption application. We do not adopt to anyone living out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. All our dogs/cats will be spayed/neutered, heart worm tested (dogs), FeLV/FIV tested (cats), microchipped; and current on vaccinations. We do not adopt on a first-come first-served basis. We review all applications received to ensure that the animal and the applicant are a good match based on our personal experiences with the animal. These animals live in our homes with us so we are familiar with their habits and behaviors. To fill out an application online or to find out more information about our adoption process, just go to www.friscohumanesociety.com and click on the 'Adoption Application' link.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
