Orzo‘s Story

❤️Orzo is Available❤️

Please READ the bio and adoption requirements first to make sure you are a perfect fit BEFORE APPLYING.

My name is Orzo and I am part of the pasta pups! I am a 5-year-old Poodle Mix and I'm a big boy coming in around 50lbs.

You can typically find me napping on the couch, as I am a very relaxed dog. I have some interest in toys, and am learning from my foster sister how to fetch. I mainly love just cuddling with my humans and allow them to pet me and love on me. I also love to give hugs to my humans which everyone finds pretty funny and adorable.

I am a simple dog with simple pleasures! I like to wake up around 8am to be let out to check to see if the squirrels are in the yard and do a quick lap around to stretch my legs. After that, I like to make sure there is food in my bowl for later on in the day. From there, it is time to RELAX! I help my foster mom work by supervising from my napping post on the couch. I could stay there ALL DAY LONG. At night, I like to spend some time outside playing alongside my foster sister and running after toys, but I always make sure my human knows that I'll be there to cuddle at a moment's notice. After all of that activity, it's time for my pre-sleep nap on the couch where I cool off and watch some TV.

I'm a pretty good dog overall, however I do sometimes find myself getting into a little bit of trouble. I am working on learning that the counters are for humans and not for me to explore as well as that the trash should be left alone. I am pretty smart, and learned how to operate the closed trashcan at my foster home, so keeping trash locked or behind a door is a safe bet. I am good on a leash and I love to go in the car, but I am still working on some basic commands.

- Children, ok with proper introduction
- Fenced in yard
- Patience for continued training
