Adobe Photoshop question

I have an image of a dog, and I want to use it on a web page. I only want the picture in a white oval, but when I go to save it as a .jpeg, the transparent layer in the .psd version is filled with white - so the whole canvas is a square white background around the dog's pix. How can I trim the picture to just an oval image? Please help. Thanks in advance.

With the already trimmed (to oval) image, export as GIF or PNG so as to retain transparency in a Web browser.
