Oreo had a terrible beginning to his life. He lived in a very unsanitary environment and was chained with no cover. He was given, if any, rotten food and dirty water with mold growing. The rescuer did not even want to recall those scenes when they first met any further. It was truly horrible.
The day Oreo was rescued, he was covered in injuries. His neighbors told the rescuers that Oreo was constantly being beaten and abused by his owners since he was a puppy. The owner used to beat Oreo whenever the owner was in a bad mood. Even worse, the owner had invited friends to come and abuse Oreo together!!!!!!!
Because of the level of the abuse, we were able to get the police involved and were able to get the owner to surrender Oreo to us. From that moment on, we made a promise to Oreo that we will treat his wounds, get him to be healthy and find him a forever loving home. Oreo was only 6 months old when he was rescued. After 5 months of rehabilitation and care, he transformed from a dog that was terrified of people to a pup that loves to go for walks with his foster family every day. Although Oreo still gets nervous around strangers, he is very food motivated. Thus, he warms up to people pretty soon.
Oreo loves to play with other dogs and we think having another dog will be good for him. However, due to his sad history, he can be a bit protective of food and would grow if anyone gets close to his food bowl (he has never attacked though). He would need dogs or humans to respect his needs for space when feeding. We recommend some training to help him cope with his insecurity with food. It takes some time but it’s a correctable issue with many rescue dogs.
Oreo has never been around cats so we do not know how he would react to cats. He is a bit scared of kids and he would bark (out of fear and anxiety) or hide. For rescues like Oreo, patience, love and respect for his needs for personal space would be key to help him adjust to his new environment. If you are interested in Oreo, please contact us and we would be happy to share any details you want to know about Oreo. We want him to find a home that would give him the love and care he truly deserves.
Oreo is house trained and would only do his business outside. Would you like to give our loving boy Oreo a forever home? If you’re interested in adopting Oreo, please fill out an adoption application!
