Hi, I am Oriole (#3530). My vet told me I am about three or four-year old. I am a girl dog and weigh 52 pounds, slightly underweight but very active and healthy. Oh, did I tell you I have a cast-iron stomach? I am new to this country and curious about everything. I love to play and chase squirrels, crows, cats, and dogs. So far, I only get to chase my foster sister. I get along with almost all dogs I meet, and I am not shy at all. I am a very confident and my foster mom tells me super sweet dog.
I love to jump up to people and give them a hug. Mom tells me not to jump up, but I have been doing it for all my life. I understand it but very difficult not to. When I see people, I get excited, and my body just jumps up. It’s my automatic response. I am working on it so please be patient with me. Mom taught me some basic commands (in English) like sit, down, stay, come and I think I am about 50 to 60% reliable. I am very smart and highly food motivated so if you are consistent, I will learn quickly. I am crate trained and am not interested in jumping up on the furniture.
Mom calls me a surfer. Oh, mom said that I should say a counter surfer. Also, when I am excited, I get mouthy. So, I may not be a perfect match for a family with kids under 15.
I will make a great hiking or running companion. Or maybe agility dog. I will be a perfect sweet family dog, I promise.
