Hey there, potential forever family! My name is Opal, and I’m on the lookout for my perfect match. Let me tell you a little about myself and what I’m looking for in my forever home.

First things first, I’m what you might call a medium-high energy pup. That means I’m always up for an adventure, whether it’s a long walk, a game of fetch, or exploring new trails. My foster family makes sure I get plenty of exercise – at least 1 to 1.5 hours of walks every day! Plus, they keep me entertained with enrichment activities like chewing bones and interactive toys. Trust me, a tired Opal is a happy Opal!

I’m a social butterfly who loves being around people. I don’t usually get scared when handled, and I’m always up for some cuddles and belly rubs. However, I can be a bit nervous around older men, so a patient and understanding family would be paw-some.

When it comes to other furry friends, I’m pretty chill. I get along great with my foster brother, and I’m always interested in meeting new doggy pals. With proper introductions, I’m sure I’ll make friends in no time! But small animals might not be the best fit for me – I’ve got a bit of a prey drive.

Now, let’s talk about manners. I’m still learning the ropes, so I might need a little help with house training. I don’t always give signals when I need to go out, but I’m getting better with practice! And while I’m crate trained and don’t mind spending some time in there, I’d much rather be hanging out with my humans.

I’ll admit, I can be a bit of a goofball sometimes. I love attention, and I’m not afraid to ask for it! But I’m also a quick learner, especially when treats are involved. So far, I’ve mastered sit, leave it, lay down, and more!

Overall, I’m a sweet and cuddly girl who’s ready to be your loyal companion. If you’re an active family who loves spending time outdoors and has lots of love to give, I think we could be the perfect match! Let’s go on adventures together and make some pawsitive memories. Are you ready to make me a part of your pack?

With love and wagging tails, Opal

Opal came to hart in an emaciated state. She visited a vet right away to ensure there were no health issues related. With deliberate and slow feeding of high-quality nutritious food, Opal gained weight. She had a previously broken tooth, so when she was strong enough she had dental surgery and ended up with 2 extractions. Along the way we found that Opal experienced some itchiness and in conjunction with her vet we tried a few things and changed from a poultry protein based food to pork which seems to have worked well for her. Opal is up to date on DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is spayed and microchipped.


Opal has shown signs of prey drive (small dogs).
