Hi, my name is Oreo and my foster mom says I’m as sweet as my name implies. I love going for walks and have quite the pep in my step for an old girl of 13. In fact I do a little dance whenever I’m excited or just feeling happy. I also enjoy car rides so maybe I could keep you company while you are running your errands sometimes. I struggle with separation anxiety and tend to cry when you leave me behind so I would do best with a stay at home mom/dad. Although I can do a crate I would prefer not to be put in one as it makes me sad and then I cry the whole time.
I tend to choose one person to be my main person and then look out because then you will be stuck like glue to me, don’t fight it it’s inevitable I’m just that irresistible. I do not have to be on your lap or paid attention to on a constant basis but I do need to be right beside you most of the time, you know like a shadow.
I do stairs extremely well but struggle to jump up to sit by you, but not to worry as I do my best to vocally let you know you need to lift me up. I’m not sure if it’s that I can’t jump up or if I’m just a little bit of a Diva and just prefer to be lifted.
I have a few favorite toys but have very brief moments of playfulness but I do enjoy my snuffle mat. My favorite pastime is sleeping and of course my walks. I am fully housetrained and have a bladder made of steel seriously it is unbelievable.
I enjoy people but would prefer older (+12) children as I don’t really enjoy how unpredictable the young ones are. I also think this would apply to other dogs as well. I love my comfy dog bed but just so you know it is for daytime sleeping only. I prefer to sleep with my human. I like my own spot on the bed but need to be close just in case you need me in the middle of the night.
If you think I would be a great catch then you should reach out here and we could set up a meet and greet.
