as of 02.09.2017
Located Warragul VIC 3820.
Not available for interstate adoption.
If listed here please be reassured Oreo is still available. After reading the profile below, if you would like to meet Oreo complete the Expression of Interest Form.
Oreo is a mix of playfulness, affection and 'goofy'. He has a beautiful coat and wonderful personality. Oh and he loves water too.
When walking on the lead Oreo is usually ok with gentle dogs but may get startled if an exuberant, out of control dog rushes into his space. Sometimes shying away or sometimes growling. He used to live well with his brother of the same age - playing fetch and tug of war together. But as they grew into adolescence they have developed dominance over food and toys that has lead to arguments.
Oreo loves to play but might accidentally knock a small child over. We routinely recommend any kids be primary school aged or older.
Medium – high. Oreo can get his exercise from active play, like frisby or fetch, but also loves going to the park. Once exercised he is happy.
How is this dog on a lead?
Like most dogs he is ok unless he sees something exciting. He has been trained but will benefit if this can be continued.
How is this dog off the lead?
Takes off and won't come back.
No however, we recommend all yards be secure.
Nuisance barker or destructive?
Oreo will alert you to something strange. He only digs if not exercised or left alone for long periods of time.
Tolerance to being alone.
Yes however, preference will be given to homes where he is not alone for extended periods of time - as we don’t want Oreo sleeping his life away.
FRISBY'S!! His absolute favourite toy!! He also likes to play fetch plus cuddles, pats and water. As he also loves his food you would need to monitor his intake.
Cats, other small animals or being ignored or excluded.
Oreo will thrive with an active family who can play with or exercise him daily.
He would love a family with kids and will be happiest with a medium to large secure yard to explore. For simplicity we recommend he be the only dog in the home although he will live well with the right dog and owner who is dog savvy.
He will not suit homes with very young, frail, elderly or time poor residents.
This ‘goofy’, affectionate and active boy will entertain and amuse you. He will sometimes sleep in odd positions and places.
Oreo loves water! He tries to bite water out of the hose and enjoys a splash in his shell pool during summer. He also yawns loudly which can be very amusing. Oreo has had basic obedience and behavioural training and understands commands "sit" "stay" "come" "drop"(lay down), "give"(give a toy), "pick it up"(pick up toy). Also responds to firm "Good Boy" meaning stay or wait.
Oreo is a mix of playfulness and affection. He has a beautiful coat and wonderful personality.
