Oreo does not like to be left alone in the yard and will keep barking but is mellow if someone is with him. Owner has never tried to crate train him so she is unsure how he would act. For exercise, Oreo would go on slow walks on the leash or play in the yard. When he is on the leash, he usually pulls lightly. Owner has never tried to take him off leash as he would run away. Owner stated her favorite thing about Oreo is how affectionate he is. He will jump on the owner for attention or sit next to her on the couch. Oreo is a very picky eater. Owner stated she tried various brands like Beneful & Cesars & he would not eat. He would eat cold cuts, & eggs in the home. Owner feels like a mellow home w/o kids would be best for Oreo.
