Good with Women: Yes. He struggles to listen to me sometimes and I need to use a louder, more confident, stern voice.
Good with Dogs: Not anymore; he growls and snaps at other dogs
Good with Cats: Ok. We aren’t majorly concerned about our cats but he’s recently went from tolerating them completely to
randomly growling and snapping at them.
Children: Not anymore. He growls and has snapped at our baby.
House Trained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes
Heartworm test: UTD
Characteristics: Ozark is a sweet, friendly, loyal boy. Spends most of his time laying around the house but loves being outside just enjoying the sunshine. Can be stubborn but listens well to alpha. Knows sit, stay, lay down, come, no, no kitchen (we don’t allow him in kitchen when we are cooking). Also does not go on furniture but loves to lay below you at all times. Loves playing fetch with a ball (but in moderation as his acl leg gets sore), being outside & mostly just being around his favorite people. Recently not a fan of having his personal space encroached by our cats but does not get physically aggressive towards them. Loved toys and bones which we allow outside so there is no potential conflict with the cats (and now a crawling baby). He would want you to throw the ball to him for hours but the leg he had acl surgery on gets sore- you have to make the call to take a break because he will want to keep playing. He loves his fenced in yard and just hangs out watching life go by. No issues with our free roaming chickens.
Only until recently we would suggest he is an only dog, no cats, older or no children home. Recently has
become verbally aggressive towards our cats and now towards our baby. No issues with adults. He used
to love playing with other dogs, but he was attacked by another dog while we were out on a leashed walk a few years ago and now is weary of other dogs. We are concerned that his warnings
will turn to physical aggression with our 9mo baby and cannot risk it.
