Oreo is a beautiful little girl who is nearly two years of age and has been living with her mum Bella and their lovely family until they have had to make the heartbreaking decision to find them both new homes due to a change in post Covid working arrangements.
It has been decided to rehome Oreo and Bella separately because on times Bella finds her daughter too much for her and is getting less tolerant of Oreo when she is too bouncy wanting to play and she gets over excited as youngsters tend to, this way they can both live happily and independently with their new families.
Oreo is living with young children and a teenager who she adores, she can be very boisterous and a little clumsy when playing, but is very cuddly and loving to them, often curling up and falling asleep with them. However after not having any visitors during Covid lockdown, when visitors now arrive she can jump up and bark until she’s comfortable with them.
Oreo doesn’t see many dogs or people when out walking because she is walked early in the morning and late in the evening to a nearby field, when she does see strangers, especially men she can give a bark. Her family has predominantly female members except for her dad which might be the reason for this. Desensitisation to new people and places could help build her confidence with visitors and strangers, we are seeing this behaviour in many youngsters born during the lockdown period, because they have sadly missed out on puppy classes and the socialisation that they would normally have at this age.
Oreo has a strong prey drive so careful introduction to livestock, sheep etc will be needed with future ongoing training. She has chased a cat that came into her garden out over their wall, so a secure garden will be needed for this lovely young lady.
Oreo is currently walked on a long line because her recall isn’t reliable and needs ongoing training. She once bolted out of the front door when a little one left it open and that time her recall was nonexistent.
Oreo is very slight at 19.5kg at the moment, her family believe it’s due to her lack of exercise, when she’s having regular exercise she tends to eat more and gain weight. With little ones toddling around she is happy to follow them around and clean up any dropped food, she will also counter surf if food is left unattended.
Oreo isn’t afraid of loud noises like the washing machine or vacuum cleaner, her mum says there’s not much that she is afraid of that she has been frequently introduced to.
She hasn’t needed to travel in a vehicle, so her reactions are unknown, but her mum believes that as soon as she learns that good things happen at the end of a journey, she will soon be happy to jump into a car.
Oreo can be left for up to two hours in her crate, she does try to get out of her crate initially, before she then settles down and sleeps. If left for too long she will relieve herself and on times needs to get up in the night to relieve herself.
If you feel that you could offer this cuddly, loving youngster the ongoing training and exercise that she enjoys please contact us.
Oreo is currently in the North Berwick area in Scotland and will be rehomed with her 5 week free Agria insurance and our Adoption Contract.
