Ozzie is a 8.5 yr old English Mastiff who came into resuce in mid November. He came into rescue very emaciated, weak legs & back, and two very ugly skin tumors hanging from the middle of his belly. Oz immediately spent two weeks at Dr Rob's ( Mountain Ridge Animal Hospital) for a severe ear infection that resulted in two necessary ear surgeries. We all felt so horrible when Dr Rob informed us that Ozzie had one of the worst ears he had ever seen, and that this old man was in a lot of pain.
Ozzie is back to is foster home, and has really come out of his shell. He is very devoted to both of his people and is 100% underfoot, 100% of the time, which is OK since he is so sweet.
His legs aren't great, his back is even worse, and his ears will be a constant problem, but he is a darling old man.
He just recently discovered the benefits of the couch, with the help of his humans, and is seen in this picture watching Monday night football with his foster day, Brian.
