Breed/Type: Chocolate Lab.

Location: Des Moines, IA

Needs foster care by: October 5, 2022
Needs foster care Until: January 23, 2024

Meet Oreo, a typical happy-go-lucky Lab who will gladly greet strangers like they are his lifelong best friends. His owner is soon to be deployed in the Army, and will temporarily be unable to care for Oreo. We are seeking a foster home to care for him from Now through Jan. 23, 2024, in the Des Moines IA area.

Oreo is described by his owner as a goofy dog who adores playing with people and other dogs. He loves going on his daily walks after which he is content to just chill and snuggle. Since Oreo is a big dog who doesn’t always remember his size, he will do better in a foster home that does not have very small children. Oreo also has a mischievous streak – his favorite thing to play with are socks; if he gets the chance to grab a sock he will gleefully play fetch with it by himself. Even when getting into trouble, he acts so happy and proud it is impossible not to laugh at Oreo’s antics.

Oreo has a seizure disorder and needs medication, he also has a skin condition that is being treated, but may need further treatment to determine the cause. Possibly allergies.  The owner pays all expenses.

Oreo is hyper-high energy and needs a foster family that can care for his medical, emotional, and physical energetic needs.
