Meet precious little Opal! Opal is a yorkie and her age is estimated at 7 years old and weighs about 11 lbs. Opal was rescued from a backyard breeder and is very shy around new people. Opal took about 3 weeks in foster care to learn to trust and accept love from her foster mom. She likes to find cozy spots in the corner of the room to relax and feel safe- she will carry her bed around to find her perfect spot. She is very quiet and would do well in apartment or condo setting. She likes to sit next to you on the couch and get lots of pets and gentle scratches. Opal is blind in one eye, so her depth perception is off and does not do well with stairs. Opal is potty trained and gets along with other dogs, but is not very playful. Opal would do best in a quiet adult only home as an only pet or with another quiet, low energy dog. Opal is spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccines. She also had a dental cleaning with multiple extractions.
All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, and as such these individuals are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog.
We do not have a central shelter or kennel locations - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience. To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED adoption application on file before we release their contact information.
All of our dogs are fixed (spayed/neutered) and up to date on shots. We have a 2 week foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.
Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.
Thank you for visiting our dogs located at www.SecondChanceDogRescue.org
