03/13/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Energetic and playful, Oregano wagged his tail and gave me a big smile, hoping he could entice me to take him out. It worked! Leashed easily, we head outside where he uses the ‘facilities’ immediately, indicating he’s probably housetrained. His eyes shine, his tail wags, and he enjoys some treats as we make friends. In playgroup sessions, Oregano greets and briefly plays with his peers before going off to explore the pen on his own. The spice Oregano has lots of health benefits (Google it), so our Oregano is well named. He’s active and fun, so a person or family who loves activity is the perfect home for him. Just think of the health benefits when taking Oregano out for long walks or a hike. He’s ready to become your exercise partner — come meet him today
Another volunteer writes: This is how I envision Oregano’s DogMatch.com ad would read: I’m single, handsome, playful, fun, and with the right person snuggly and affectionate. I love getting an under the chin scratch and will roll over for belly rubs when I’m in the mood. I can sometimes be a bit mouthy and jumpy when I get excited so need someone to help me with that but I love to learn new things so will happily learn everything you need me to learn using positive reinforcement training. I love toys so a full toy box is a plus! I love playing with other dogs and play hard so would love to meet the right doggie and his/her person for a lifetime of play and love. I’m ready to settle down and begin my happily ever after so let’s make a match!
