Meet Olaf - Big sweet goofball

Olaf is a big, sweet boy with a sensitive soul. Before coming to us, he had been left behind by owners who moved. Caring neighbors watched out for him and kept him fed after being told the local shelter was too full to take him.
When we first picked Olaf up, it was obvious he was very cautious and nervous about who we might be--he ran and hid. Even though Olaf has a bit of stranger-danger mentality, he does not exhibit any aggression whatsoever. He simply needs a bit of time to trust you. (We earned some of his trust during the car ride from pick up to his first safe landing place)

As his foster mom says, once he can trust you, he is the most lovable goof ball you will have the pleasure of having in your home. It will take Olaf some time to adjust to new people and new surroundings, but the payoff will be so worth it! His foster mom has been doing an amazing job with him—such as taking him to Lowe’s and car rides. He did great at the vet office, too. Olaf will also let you give him a bath!

Olaf is a young boy, estimated to be two years old at the most. He is dog friendly, cat friendly, and has even been doing very well around the horses and chickens in his foster home—although, they do feel he might chase the chickens if given the chance. He really enjoys the Labrador dogs in his foster home, and we all agree that Olaf should live with another dog of similar size and age.

Olaf craves positive, caring, and loving human interaction and thrives being part of the family. His breed (Great Pyrenees) may be known as a guard dog, but what he really wants is to be with you and be a part of the family in your home. Hands down, Olaf will be happiest living with another big dog that will play. His play can be rough and clumsy, so best to not live with small or older dogs.

At feeding time, Olaf likes to put his mouth on his foster mom’s hand or arm and lead her to the kitchen where the food is! (It is a leading action not a biting action). Olaf will need a yard with a secure fence, preferably 4-5 feet tall. He needs to be leashed when not in his yard. Olaf was underweight when we first took him in, but weighed in at 88 pounds in January!

Olaf is a special boy who will easily win your heart!
