(MASSACHUSETTS) The Scituate Animal Shelter of Massachusetts is in search of a new family for Oreo, a three-year-old curly-haired pup with a troubled past! According to the shelter, Oreo needs a home with someone who understands insecure dogs and can provide her with the stability she needs.

The adorable Oreo is a calm and quiet dog, but she is also very wary of new people and takes time to warm up to them. The shelter recommends that her new home be a quiet one without frequent visitors to help her feel comfortable. If strangers do come over, proper introductions will need to take place outside.

Oreo is likely to bond quickly with one person and may prefer to be the only dog in the household. However, she may be okay living with another dog with proper introductions. Her new family must understand that she is protective of her food and needs adults who will leave her alone while she is eating. Therefore, the shelter is seeking an adult-only home with no children.

Despite her complexities, Oreo is a loving dog who enjoys spending time outside and walking on a leash. However, due to her nervousness, she may sometimes submissive pee if she finds herself unsure of a situation. Her new family must be patient, kind, and understanding as Oreo works to build trust.

The Scituate Animal Shelter notes that Oreo is not for everyone, but they know her perfect match is out there. If you believe you could provide Oreo with the stable, loving home she needs, please consider adopting her today.
