This is Oreo, she is a very smart girl! Her previous owners were not very nice to her so she can be a little shy at first but then she will love you forever. When she rolls over and allows you to rub her tummy you know you have won her trust. She looks at you like she has so many words to say, but she can't seem to get them out. Oreo is so grateful and loyal, actually hugging you when you return home. She is a gentle little thing, despite her being 50 lbs she is a lap dog at heart, she will, ever so slowly try to sneak onto your lap .She loves to go for walks, always looking back to make sure you are still there. She is great on a leash, she enjoys a leisurely walk or a run. She love loves loves to fetch! She would be a great bird dog for sure, she is very teachable and eager to please you. If I have her for much longer I was thinking of training her for search and rescue. She is really intelligent, but also very calm. This is a hard combination to find. In my opinion, Oreo would do best in a calm home, a family with older children or perhaps a retired couple, or single owner. The most important thing is for her to be around her family a lot. Also Oreo is a great guard dog, I always feel safe when I am home alone. She will always alert me when something is fishy. Oreo is a special girl, she seems to always steal a little piece of everyone's heart.
