    SAY HELLO TO OREO! Oreo is a delightful 2 year old Shih Tzu boy and a foster favorite. Weighing in at 16 pounds, he has a peculiar history of biting that we believe originated from his being teased and somewhat spoiled. Oreo takes a little time to develop trust with some people.

He can jump up very high, but if you let him know it's not acceptable he will respect you. He is good with strangers, but careful introduction is needed. Due to his tendency to take advantage of some people, we would ... (Read More)like Oreo to be in a home with a patient but firm owner, but one who is not too domineering or smothering. Oreo will be your most loyal friend and entertain you as well. He needs frequent leash walks to remind him who really holds the end of the leash! He is going to be the greatest companion when he meets his match! Oreo is good with kids, however due to his bite history with adults, it is not recommended and only an adult family or adults with older highschool teens will be considered. Oreo is mostly housetrained, however like all rescues, he will need gentle guidance and patience from his new family as he gets to know the routine of his new home. Oreo is a brindle and white longer coated breed that will require regular weekly brushing as well as a professional grooming every 4 to 8 weeks. Oreo's adoption fee is $450.00. This fee includes his Veterinarian visits, neuter, all vaccinations including rabies and bordatella, de-worming, microchip and professional groom. (Less)
