On #BellLetsTalk day, The Peterborough Humane Society did their part to help reduce the stigma of discussing mental health by doing a Facebook post about a special 4-year-old Pointer/Retriever.
His name is Oreo, and he is gorgeous.
Like an Oreo cookie...
But as the Humane Society says, "Although you can't tell from his picture, he is currently very nervous and timid. He has been unsettled by the recent changes in his life. This adorable guy has not been with us long and is still adjusting to the busy environment."
The Humane Society says he will flourish in a forever home willing to help him build his confidence—he will help his owner's mental health, and that owner will in turn help Oreo with its mental health. The Humane Society are recommending a quieter home with no children.
Oreo is not yet up for adoption—"He will hopefully be up for adoption by the end of the week; he had surgery yesterday and needs a bit of time to recover," the Humane Society's Susan Dunkley tells PTBOCanada—but whoever gets him will get one special dog in need of lots of love.
