RESIDENT CALM DOG OR AS AN ONLY DOG
OWNERS EXPERIENCED IN EITHER MALTESE OR SHITZU BREEDS, OR SMALL BREED TERRIERS WOULD BE BENEFICIAL.
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN WHO WONT TREAT HER AS A TOY
Oreo is a 4 year old Maltese cross Shitzu. She is a loving little dog, with bags of personality. Oreo loves to get a cuddle and a fuss, and her whole-body wiggles when you stroke her. Oreo loves human company and will make a great companion dog as she’s never far away from wherever you are.
Oreo is a fit and active little dog who loves going on adventures but is also equally happy under a blanket in the warm. Oreo loves being stroked and fussed- although sometimes she can be a little reserved, she is soon waggling her whole body when she meets new people and loves getting cuddles.
Oreo is great being groomed and will need owners willing to commit to regular coat maintenance grooms to prevent matting as Oreo has a very long thick coat when not clipped short. When Oreo came into rescue she needed to have her coat all clipped off due to matting so she will need frequent brushing to prevent this happening again.
Oreo is a tiny dog who can be a little unsure of children initially, but with older children she is fine. Oreo could live with dog savvy children who will handle her gently and understand that even though she is tiny she is not a toy.
Oreo currently lives with other dogs in her foster home and is learning how to interact with them well. She will over groom other dogs and can occasionally get over excited around them. She could live with calmer older dogs or as an only dog as long as her human is home most of the time and she has doggy friends.
Oreo will chase cats so would be best without any small animals in the home
Oreo is such an easy little foster; she is non-destructive and a very quiet house guest. She is a terrier so does have an excitable side when she is playing or doing zoomies around the garden. She will use a crate and although she barks for a few minutes initially, she does settle down after that.
Oreo loves toys and running around, she pounces on toys like a cat. She isn’t food aggressive but will tell other dog’s off if they go near her dinner as she is quite a slow eater so this will need managing in a home with other dog’s
Oreo walks well on a lead; she will pull initially but soon settles. She loves sniffing and exploring, she is a tiny little dog that sometimes gets a bit distracted by adventuring so is currently kept on a long line for walks rather than off lead, new owners would need to work on her recall before letting her off lead in any new home
Oreo needs a home with people home the majority of the day, a home that has older children or adults only and a home that has either a calm older dog, or no pets. She needs pawrents that will commit to grooming her and taking her to regular grooming appointments to prevent her coat from matting. Although in the homing photos she has short hair, naturally she has a very long coat which will need managing. Owners experienced in either Maltese or Shitzu breeds, or small breed terriers would be beneficial.
Oreo is a loving little dog who so deserves to be a companion for someone and to experience life as a totally loved pet- whoever adopts her will be getting a funny, energetic, loving and cuddly little dog
