OREO – 12125
Safe - 11-19-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Oreo. My animal id is #12125. I am a male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 8 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 08-Nov-2017.
Oreo is at risk for medical reasons. He was diagnosed yesterday with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Oreo requires placement in a dog experienced home, as although friendly he can be excitable and mouthy in play.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Puppy, puppy, puppy!! Oreo is all about being a puppy — playful, fun, affectionate, tail wagging, and ready to make friends with both people and other dogs. I met Oreo in the morning being walked by another volunteer who said Oreo had carried a toy in his mouth all the way to the park; so cute! He was so happy to show me his prize, tail wagging, butt in the air as he bowed to me, or maybe to it. I couldn’t wait to spend time with this fun pup as it was clear he was ready for some fun. Oreo is as sweet as the cookie after which he was named, lively and having so much fun with toys, and so happy to share them with me for a good game of tug, or simply lie in my lap giving a toy a good chomp. Oreo kisses are the best, and sometimes a little puppy nibbly. He’s a smarty pants too, sitting for a treat when asked, and taking it gently. Oreo may never have had a coat on before, but acclimated perfectly and pranced around strutting his good looks. Of course, when he slipped while jumping up on the bench with me, we pretended not to notice so he wouldn’t be embarrassed. We won’t tell, Oreo. Oreo has enjoyed rough play with both males and females in group, and rocked his behavior assessment with perfect scores. Rock star puppy! Oreo does think his leash is a toy and likes to bite up on it, not ready to relinquish it unless a trade up is offered. A harness will help, along with an experienced adopter to help him learn that a leash is not a toy. If you love puppies and are ready to help them become rock star adults with positive reinforcement training (meaning lots of treats), then Puppy Oreo hopes you stop by to meet him today.
My medical notes are…
