OREO NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!!
Name: Oreo Best Guess for Breed: shepherd/husky mix
Best Guess for Age: 3 years SEX: female
Approximate Weight: 33 lbs
Gets Along With: O ther dogs and kids! Oreo cannot live with cats.
Currently Living at: DC area foster home
Special adoption considerations: Oreo is heartworm positive. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative. Heartworm dogs can resume full active and normal lives, but need to be kept calm for 4-6 weeks after treatment. Oreo is scheduled to have treatment as soon as possible so the recovery process can begin. We are happy to talk more in depth about heartworm disease and treatment during the screening process.
Oreo is Looking For: A family to provide long walks and frequent trips to the dog park - while she undergoes treatment she'd love to cuddle up with you on the couch and eventually go to obedience school to make new friends and learn her best manners!
What My Foster Says About Me: Oreo has been a very quiet and easy going girl! She is very happy to cuddle up with her foster and has lived with kids as young as two! She looks for a comfortable lap to climb on and likes to be near her person. She is curious about everything and loves to give kisses. Lots and lots of kisses. She is a hunter and loves to chase down the squirrels and rabbits in the neighborhood! She is also very loyal and is motivated by attention. In just a few days has picked up some commands. She has done very well with the 2 year old in the home.
