Pet of the Week 

Meet Oscar. He is an Egyptian Baladi breed.  Oscar is about nine month of age and did come to us all the way from Egypt. Also known as street dogs, Baladi dogs are often dismissed as difficult to train. However, learning to adapt to living on the streets has made them very instinctive and intelligent. As a result of their experiences on Egypt’s streets, they are often shy of people and therefore require extra love and gentleness when first dealing with them. In the end, kindness will make them love you and be loyal to you like no other dog would be. Read more about him here.
