Oslo was rescued from a canyon hillside where he had been living alone on a tattered mattress for 1 year, surviving by scavenging food. He has been in a foster home with 4 foster brothers and sisters who have brought him much comfort and increased confidence, and continue to help him through his journey from street/feral scared dog to a domesticated in home pet. His huge progress is a testament to his resilience and ability to acclimate to a world where he can feel safe. Today Oslo loves going on walks, is a fantastic hiking partner (can go up to 5 miles), and has learned that car rides are actually ok (after all it means he is going on a walk or a hike!!!). He has gotten over many fears, with some remaining fear of some loud noises (thunder and fireworks), and though he has gotten accustomed to meeting people, he may be shy and skittish with new people and can be especially hesitant with the male gender. His best fit home is one with people experienced with dogs with a shy/feral/street life past who have gone through the emotional trauma and healing, so that he can continue having that savvy support needed. Another dog, or a couple of dogs, those that are well tempered and confident, is a must to help him continue having that confident furry support system. Oslo would do best with a private and very secure yard for his potty breaks and outdoor enjoyment when not going on a walk or hike - though he is house trained, he does need access to a safe outdoor area when he needs to take his potty break. A quiet calm home, with lots of love and consistent structure and routine would be ideal for this boy - if he knows what to expect every day, he will feel more safe knowing his world is as predictable as possible. Oslo has come so far, and is ready to continue this journey into the big world with the right understanding person or family and furry siblings, and will be ever so loyal to them and give back more than one can imagine. Recommend children in home over 16 yrs of age.
