Facts about Opal

  • Breed: Great Pyrenees
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Opal is a special girl with special medical needs. First, the special girl part: she is a 7 month old Great Pyrenees who, like her breed tends to be, is calm, easygoing, and a giant lap dog. She is good with little puppies and grouchy old dogs. She is amazing with small kids. She is mild mannered and has easily adapted to inside living. She would fit well in a variety of homes.

Now, for the special needs part. Her ligament has not formed correctly and is not properly attached to the bone in her back leg. She will likely need surgery on her ligament in the future, but the vet advised that because her leg does not bother her, she will only need monthly injections of adequan, which can be done in home by the adopter, to keep her from overcompensating her good leg. Surgery could be years away. Because of this, Opal needs a family that understands that she will not be a working dog, a jogging companion, and despite being amazing with toddlers, she would do better with older kids who clearly understand her limitations. Everyone who meets Opal finds her loving, endearing, and such a sweet furball with the softest, most petable fur. If you know you are up to the task of a dog that needs a special home, please contact the rescue.

About Legacy of Hope Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

This is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the improvement of the lives of our best friends.

Currently millions of pets are euthanized every year due to over population. In fact, each person in the U.S would have to take 8-9 dogs or cats per person for all of the homeless pets to be adopted. To decrease the number of pets euthanized each year it is important to educate people about the importance of spaying and neutering our pets. Also, with the help of volunteers and donations, we can help to arrange low cost spay and neuter programs, thus providing these services to those who could not otherwise afford them. Through education and spay/neuter programs we can help to combat the problem of over population. It is the national goal within animal rescue organizations that this will be a no kill nation. We will strive to do our part with your help.

For those dogs already in distress, our goal is to rescue homeless and surrendered dogs. With the support of donations and the hard work of volunteers, we can rescue and rehabilitate dogs in need. We will provide shelter, veterinary care, love, toys, food, and training for those who are in need. In addition, we work to find forever homes for each dog and, once adopted, we support the adoptive owners so the adjustment process is successful and the new family member is a permanent member.

Finally, pitbull breeds are in grave distress: of all dogs in shelters, 70-75% are pit bulls or pit bull mixes. Only 1 in 600 dogs of this breed will find a home and the remainder are euthanized. Due to the pervasive negative publicity surrounding this breed, there is a reluctance to allow one to become a family member. Yet in the past, this breed was the most popular in the country; the immortalized as the marine mascot; and was affectionately known as "the nanny dog". Through the work of dedicated animal groups such as Bestfriends Animal Society, BAD RAP and many others, this amazing breed is being given a chance to correct the negative reputation they have been unjustly branded with. Remember: a dog's behavior is a reflection of the personality traits of his or her owner and not the reverse.
