Oreo is a 2 1/2 year old male basset/beagle mix which is also referred to as a bagel. He arrived from Kentucky on 2/1/20. Oreo is good with dogs. Oreo is not a fan of little children. He gets very nervous around them. Oreo would do well as an only dog as he craves attention. We are uncertain how he is with cats. Oreo prefers to be in a physically fenced in yard as he enjoys being outside to play. Oreo is fostered in Victor, NY.
I have lived with my foster brother and sister for 1 month now. In that time, I have shown my foster family that I am great with asking to go outside when I have to go potty. I will walk over to my foster parents, bark, then run to the porch door. I have also shown how quick I am to learn. I have already discovered recall training on the farm ( I always come when I am called!). I love to follow horses while my foster mom is riding them and I help her feed the horses, making sure everyone comes down for a meal. Sometimes I like to bark at the horses, but quickly quiet down when I am asked to. My favorite hobbies are to go everywhere with my foster family, play with my foster siblings, and snuggle/ sleep on the couch. Oh! If you think you can get by without petting me, then you are surely mistaken! I love to be pet. I am also crate trained and will easily run into my crate for a treat (though I cant have too many since I am trying to cut down on my weight). As far as food, I am on a weight loss diet but actually moderate my own food.
Whenever my foster parents get home I just get so excited! I wag my tail and run to them as soon as the crate is open. I am so excited that I have to grab a toy and carry it around while I say hello. The only thing I am not a fan of are small children. I don’t do anything bad if they are at a distance, but I am a sensitive man and if they grab me or pet me too hard I can get scared and yip or protect myself. I have recently met a 1.5 year old boy and 5 year old girl that I loved getting gentle pettings from, as long as the small humans are closely supervised. I think that is all for now, off to take a nap on the couch, but if I think of anything else I will be sure to let you know.
All basset hound/dogs are up to date on vaccinations, altered, and placed on heart worm preventative prior to being adopted.
