Great Pyrenees Rescue Oscar

Great Pyrenees Rescue Oscar

Meet the lovely Oscar. He is a 1-2 year old all white neutered male found as a stray. He is not a barker, and is loved by his new caretakers. As you can see, Oscar is absolutely gorgeous.

He is still very puppylike. He is playful but needs basic obedience training. Because of this he is probably not well matched with small children. This is not because he is aggressive at all - he is at the stage where he does not realize how big he is, so he might slam into a wall walking by, turn, ask "is that my rear end? It is so big!" And then rediscover his tail and merrily chase.

Oscar would be a wonderful dog for children over 10 who are not going to be bowled over by him, for a couple, or lone person. Time will need to be devoted to training and long walks will keep his puppy energy in check.

Are you able to give this loving, lovely boy the fur-ever home that he has never had?
