When you're this good looking, it's not surprising that everyone thinks you have a future as a supermodel! In addition to his dashing good looks, Ozark has all the qualities of a sophisticated and distinguished gentleman. Not only is he gorgeous, he is also a friendly, curious, and resilient boy and ready to start the next chapter of his life in his forever home.

Ozark can be a little shy meeting new people, and prefers that his new friends take things slowly, but earning his trust is worth the effort! He is sweet, loyal, and happy to see his regular volunteer and staff friends during his daily outings at APA!. If you're looking for a walking companion, Ozark would be the perfect buddy - he loves getting outside, taking easy-paced strolls with plenty of stops to sniff all the things. He's not in a rush, and just wants to enjoy the moment and explore his surroundings.

On a recent sleepover with a staff member, Ozark was noted to be a quiet, well-mannered house guest and enjoyed looking out the window and watching all the activity going on outside. He also likes riding in the car playing with toys! He's really just a sweet senior guy that is hoping to find a low-key home with a nice adult or two to enjoy his golden years. If you're looking for a companion who is both ready for adventures and for relaxing at home, ask about Ozark today!
