Ozzie is a 2 1/2 year old French Bulldog rescued from a puppy mill. Ozzie was diagnosed with GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) and came to us from ARF (Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons). His bio from the shelter states he does not get along with other dogs and will need to be the only animal in the house. In the week his foster home has had him, he has not met a dog he doesn’t like and has gotten on great with their resident French Bulldog, Oliver. They spend their days playing and sleeping.
He is taking only two meds a day for his reflux and just needs to be held upright for 10 minutes after he eats. He automatically comes up to you after eating to be held now.
He loves his humans but hates his crate at the moment. Right now, he goes in the crate to eat and drink with no problem as long as you don’t try closing the door. Sleeping wise, he has to be close to his humans. When put in a play pen in the bedroom, he moved it across the room until it was by the bed and then used it to climb onto the bed. Once on the bed, he lay straight down and slept quietly, except for the snoring.
This week’s vet check up showed him in good health apart from the reflux and his elongated palate. His heart and lungs are all clear as well as his joints.
He loves to go on car rides and settles down straight away. He learned the use of the dog door the first day and has had a very few accidents in the house.
