Oreo was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 15 November 2016 and she weighs around 23 pounds. Oreo is listed has been listed as a Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler Mix. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is.
Oreo is a happy go lucky girl, her tail is always wagging although she can initially be shy, that doesn't last long when she knows she can get her ears scratched and belly rubbed. She enjoys playing with toys and chewing on cow hooves.
She is located in the kennels building and uses the dog door in her kennel to get out to the run to do her business. She has not had any accidents or been destructive whist in the kennel. She shares a kennel with Tigger and they are always playing and wrestling and having fun. She is great with all dogs of all sizes at playtime and loves to run around and chase and be chased. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how she would be around, or near them.
Oreo is a young girl with a lot of energy, we do not have time to work on training at the rescue, but she is responsive. She needs a family that understands she will need training and guidance. An active family who can give her the lifestyle that she needs. Playing ball in the back-yard is fun, but she would benefit from so much more, she is going to need a lot of physical and mental exercise. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting her explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to hers and your benefit.
It is important that her family understands the importance of basic and advanced training. We advise that families work on their own basic training so that boundaries and expectations can be set and personalities and body language learnt in the process, which will help form a much stronger bond.
Oreo will make a great family addition to an experienced family. She is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call her own.

This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.
