SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY – OREO NEEDS AN ADULT ONLY HOME
This little Beagle mix is Oreo He is a neutered male approximately 1 1/2 – 2 years old. Oreo was turned into the shelter with his friend. Oreo’s friend was adopted and Oreo was left behind, scared and alone. Luckily a very nice lady informed Bean’s Beagles Dog Rescue that Oreo needed help. Oreo is now safe with us.
Due to the recent high volume of inquiries about this little guy, we would like to kindly explain his history and needs.
Oreo is scared of everything new, especially new people. He is not a fear biter, nor has he ever shown any signs of aggression. He is just scared. When new people try to meet him, he freezes up. He has been at YDT almost a year, Bean’s Beagles works with him on a daily basis. He is feeling comfortable enough to make friends with Jeff our …dog trainer and now with a Coastal German Shepherd Rescue volunteer and her husband as well as slowly making friends with Lorraine of CGSR.
Oreo has escaped from two foster homes. One was out of human error. We found him 36 hours later. The second time, he escaped from what appeared to be a secure yard and home. How he got out, we will never know. We found him within 45 minutes.
On Facebook we have posted pictures of him walking happily with other dogs and hanging with other dogs; however, this has taken an enormous amount of time to get him there.
In a new envrionment he may shut down and will need to start over again, or maybe not. We don’t know. It’s going to be up to Oreo.
Oreo feels at home and is happy at YDT kennel. He even likes to sit on his igloo and supervise the workers and say hi to the familiar people he knows. But as wonderful as the staff is to him, this should not be how and where he lives out his life. He deserves a loving patient home of his own.
Potential adopters must understand it is very important to keep Oreo on a leash inside and outside for at least a couple of weeks.
By not doing this, Oreo will choose to try to escape if given the chance because he has not bonded with his person.
If you do not feel you can commit to follow this plan, then Oreo is not a dog for you.
If you feel you have the time, an enormous of patience and will follow the leash rule to help this little guy, please contact us at (714) 397-0705.
