Facts about Oreo

  • Breed: Shih Tzu Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Oreo's past has been far from easy and now he needs a gentle soul to help him forget it ...

***Please make sure to read this in its entirety as Oreo needs a very specific foster/forever home!*** he has come A LONG WAY with his EXPERIENCED foster , Judi Rattien and NEEDS someone to CONTINUE his training .

Oreo was rescued from a high kill shelter a few months back. Unfortunately, he was not placed in the right home as he does have some behavioral issues and there were three children in the house. The family relinquished him to Road to Home Rescue in hopes of them finding him a forever home that was appropriate for him .

On top of all of this, the trainer that Oreo worked with prior to him being relinquished did not guide this family in the right direction at all!! We believe that it is only made things more difficult for this poor dog and this poor family. He encouraged the family ( including the 6 year old daughter) to put the dog in a head lock and to bang pots and pants on the crate when the dog becomes aggressive or barks in the crate. ( PLEASE DO NOT FOCUS ON WHO THIS TRAINER IS - IT WILL BE ADDRESSED).

He needs an experienced owner who will work with a trainer that will recondition him the appropriate way and someone who will honor their commitment to him .We do not know his past, but do know that he is very uncomfortable in his own skin because of it . He needs a QUIET, LOW TRAFFIC HOME where he is the ONLY pet .

About Road to Home Rescue Support - Long Island, NY

About Our Rescue Group...

Road to Home was started to be able to focus on animals in need and to provide support to local rescues. After years of working in shelters and with rescues, we decided starting our own rescue was the best way to do what we do best! We are a 100 percent non-profit and 100 percent of the money we raise goes towards animals in need. Our 5013c is pending. Here’s what we will focus on:

-Providing guidance and support for re-homing an animal.
-Providing medical attention, training, spay/neuter, and food/supplies to a homeless animal.
-Pulling an animal from a euthanasia list or from an unsafe situation and placing them in a foster or permanent home.
-Working with rescues and shelters to facilitate adoptions by doing home checks, adoption applications, and networking to find foster or permanent homes for animals in need.
-Working with rescues and shelters to coordinate adoption events, food drives, and fundraisers.
-Raising money through a Chip-In to help specific dogs with training, medical needs, and adoption.
-Raising funds that can be allocated to specific needs of other rescues and shelters (including medical expenses, training expenses, food, and transport) as well as pledging money to animals in jeopardy of euthanasia.
