Owner Surrender Profile
Oreo Shake “Oreo” is an unaltered 4 year old Shih Tzu/Terrier mix. The owner got Oreo from her previous owner three years ago. She is being surrendered because she is moving to a home that does not allow pets.
Social Life and Personality:
Oreo has been around children aged from infants and older. She is relaxed and gentle during play with the children. Oreo has not been around cats or other dogs to know her behavior. She is trained to use the bathroom on training pads and she does not accidents off the training pads. She has been kept mostly indoors but does receive daily walks.
Oreo was tense throughout the intake and would bark and snap when approached. She would not allow handling for collaring.
Behavior: New Hope Only
Oreo Shake’s previous owner states she has been around children of all ages, and was reported to be relaxed and gentle during play. The owner also states Oreo Shake is trained to use the bathroom on training pads and he does not accidents inside the home.
Oreo was reported to be tense throughout the intake and would bark and snap when approached. She was also reported to be intolerant of handling during her medical exam and snapped at a technician. During SAFER Oreo Shake was a bit nervous upon entry to the assessment room, but she was sociable and allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items without issue. During the tag interaction, Oreo Shake became stiff and uncomfortable, but did not escalate. She was not interested in the toys or rawhide items, but she did show some concerns during the food item; bit the assess-a-hand when pushed out of the food bowl. Due to this behavior New Hope placement is recommended, and the department feels Oreo Shake may require positive reinforcement behavior modification to address this food guarding behavior, before placement into a permanent home.
