OPAL is a 25 lb, 6 month old fox terrier mix with a silky spotted coat. She is a very happy, playful puppy and a lap dog when she wants to snuggle. She would make a great playmate with any dog. She sleeps in a crate at night and is doing great on her housebreaking. She was adopted but returned through no fault of her own! Can her next home truly be her forever home?
My name is Opal, and I'm a four month old, 21 pound, Jack Russell Terrier mix. I was found as a stray in Kentucky and brought to a local shelter, where HART found and rescued me! Now I'm living the life in my new foster home and have plenty of four legged doggies and kitties to play with, although I don't think they kitties are too fond of me. They bat me in the face with their paws while I stand there with my tongue hanging out. I don't know why they don't love my puppy kisses. I know my foster mommy does though, and I shower her with them at all times! I'm a fairly active little girl so a family with kids or other dogs that I can play with would be great. I'm working very hard on my house and crate training but since I'm a frisky little girl, and still a puppy, I sometimes forget that I need to go outside. I aim to please though so I'm sure I'll catch on with some more time and patience. I am one of the happiest puppies on the block so come meet me. I can always use more friends!
