Whether you’re looking to mix it up with friends at the dog park, boost the flavor of playtime with some toy tossing or just ‘veg out’ on the couch, Oregeno is the perfect accompaniment! Hunky, handsome and just as delicious as the goes-with-everything herb for which he’s named, Reggie (as I like to call him) is a big boy with a big heart and all the playful energy you’d expect from a 2-year-old youngster but he couldn’t be more friendly with dogs and people alike. While he starts out strong and a bit hyperactive on our walk to the park, after a photo session, gentle treat-taking, play time and the short return journey, he’s adorably tuckered out and ready to rest quietly in his den once more. Reggie’s a star in doggie playgroup too, enthusiastic yet polite and always thrilled to find some new four-legged friends to play with. He seems house trained, doesn’t guard his things, listens well to commands (though he’s yet to master them) and is smart and eager to follow where his person leads. In experienced hands Reggie will be a magnificent pet, a boy to make you stand up proud as you walk down the street, and with an active family by his side and plenty of canine socializing he’s going to be one very happy chappie himself. Looking to spice up your life? Then look no further, Oregeno is the very ingredient you’ve been missing and the only thing left to say is…bon appetit!
Another volunteer writes: Love the big blockheads? Love that ear to ear pittie smile? Love the playful, tail wagging, fun loving dogs? Then you must come meet Oregano and spice up your life (pun intended!). Housetrained, pretty good on leash, playful, fun, loves toys, and equally friendly to people and other dogs he is guaranteed to put a smile on your face every moment of every day!
Oregeno pulls hard on the leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. He was overexcited during handling, jumping up, and mouthy (light) and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. Oregeno was excitable but playful while playing tag (jumpy, mouthy light and grabbing at the leash but was not difficult to distract). Oregeno took the toy away but had soft body language.
Oregeno is an active dog he need a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that he can go to an experience home. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction.
Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand, with loose body and open mouth, mouths the hand, but does not apply pressure. Or, dog licks hands while lips are long. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, jumpy, grabs at the leash but was not difficult to distract. Squeeze 1/2: 2. Dog gently places his open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure. Toy: 1. Dog settles close,keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy.
