My Story

Date into Rescue: 2/9/2022

Reason for being in rescue: Opal was running loose when one of our caregivers stopped and opened her car door - Opaline said heck yea, I want a ride!  We tried and tried to find where she belonged but no one claimed the happy go lucky little dog.  Someone loved her once for sure.  But what happened to them is anyone's guess.

Special Needs: Opal is up to date on vaccinations, spayed, heart worm negative. She is a fence climber and will climb a fence if it means getting back to her person.  With you she stays right by your side.  Opaline had an inguinal hernia which we have had repaired. 

What kind of home would be best for me: Opal is able to go over a fence when it means getting to a person. Since she stays nearby to her people she has a lot of off leash potential if she were trained. She has a slight prey drive toward cats and can not be placed with them in the home. 

What is my personality like: Opal is sweet, easygoing, and calm. All she wants in life is to be loved and held by her humans. She actively seeks her people out even if that means going over a fence. She enjoys taking walks, going on hikes, and exploring all that life has to offer. She would do great in an environment that can satisfy her curios mind. She does have a bit of anxiety about being alone and often times does not want to eat without the presence of her person. 

Opal is getting better about being on her own as our caregivers work with her everyday to settle her into a good routine that fits her needs. She is not a fan of crates but is becoming more and more comfortable with them as she learns her routine. 

How do I act when I first meet new people: Opal is sweet and can often be affectionate. 

Tips and Tidbits: 2/9/2018 is her estimated birthday. She can not be placed with cats in the home. 

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
