Oreo is already America's favorite cookie, but he would be happy to become your favorite cookie too!

Oreo is a distinguished gentleman who likes a calm household. Before he came to us he had not met very many people in his life. He would greatly appreciate it if others could give him plenty of time to warm up to them. To be honest, he doesn't really like everyone he meets -- he's rather picky about humans and he is not tolerant of children. However, when he is around adults he likes then he becomes an adoring social butterfly. Just like his preference with people, Oreo also prefers only calm dogs. He would enjoy being your one and only dog, but could live with a well-matched dog friend (no cats, please!)

Oreo is opinionated and well read so he hopes you enjoy random chit chats here and there. He loves walks in the park but also appreciates time to cuddle on the couch. He is always available to sample tasty snacks and is happy just to be with his person. Though he tries to hold up the reputation of a steady and well balanced gentleman, he gets lonely should you leave him so he would appreciate it if you had a more flexible schedule so he doesn't have to be alone for too long.

Oreo promises to be a good co-worker and protector if you take him home. Does he sound like he has the potential to become your favorite cookie? Please inquire if you would like to join Oreo's friend circle!
