When Oreo was adopted from us eight years ago, she never dreamed that she would be back, and looking for a good home to call her own. Oreo had a home but when her family was struck with a financial hardship, they could no longer afford to care for her. This gentle and lovely lady is about 10 years old and is a pit bull terrier mix. If you are looking for a kind and loving companion to snuggle with on the couch, take leisurely strolls with, and be there for you through good times and bad, you have found your girl. Oreo asks for nothing more than a good home with a caring family that will give her all the love that she is so willing to give. Oreo is gentle, well behaved, and housebroken too. She doesn't seem to mind other pets and loves people of all ages. Don't let Oreo's age fool you.....she has lots of spunk and still loves to play and exercise. She may have a little cloudiness to her eyes, and a bit of gray on her muzzle, but she still loves to check out the world around her and flash her big, bright smile. Please consider opening your heart to our beautiful Oreo and give her the forever home that she's dreaming of. 1/12/13 File#22218
