Prince Oreo Cookie

Mario and Prince Oreo Cookie were adopted by Bob & Sharel Cyphers.

Original Story

My name is PRINCE OREO COOKIE.  I suppose I got this name because I am a prince of a boy, because I am sweet inside, and because everyone loves me just like everyone loves Oreos.

This is my second time looking for a home through PROS.  I was adopted 2 years ago by a family who has now lost their home; and they have to move to a place that doesnt allow dogs.

As you can see, I am quite the handsome PRINCE.  I’m up to date on shots, neutered, house-broken, and I have a SPECTACULAR PERSONALITY.  I actually have a sense of humor, and love to act silly.  I am very affectionate, and get along with everyone – dogs, kids, strangers… you name it.  I’m 9 years old.

Currently I am doing fine, but I have been diagnosed with spinal nerve degeneration.  This has caused my back legs to wobble and my back feet to sometimes drag.  I cant walk on rough surfaces without wearing socks on my back feet or they get torn up.  The condition is progressive, and a specialist says there is no real treatment.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I should say I’m one of those pugs who snorts, snuffles, and snores.  I hate to admit it, but I am a little pudgy, and a low-cal diet would probably help both my leg problems and my snoring.  The vet said I’d better not have dental work done due to my respiratory issues.  I get over-heated easily, so should not be outside for any length of time on hot days.

If you are looking for a great companion with a huge personality, and are willing to deal with my limitations – I promise to be your very best friend!
