Opal's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Opal's Story...
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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Opal, a Broken Arrow Great Pyrenees dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees for sale in Broken Arrow, or seeking a Great Pyrenees dog from a breeder in Broken Arrow.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Broken Arrow already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Broken Arrow breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Pyrenees breeders who help with Great Pyrenees rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Broken Arrow paves the way for another one to be saved.
