Hi there! My name is Opal. I was orginally a stray in Alabama and very fearful and under-socialized when I was brought to the local animal shelter. In August of 2016, I was transferred to the ASPCA's Behavioral Rehabilitation Center at St. Hubert's, where I began to learn that unfamiliar people, objects, sounds, and real-life situations aren't as scary as I thought. I graduated from the Rehab Center program in April 2017 and am looking forward to having a family of my own. I am shy at first, but once I get to know you, I am a very smart, busy, girl that LOVES to play with other dogs! I am looking for an experienced adopter with a quiet household and fenced in yard, who can continue to guide me through life's scary moments. I MUST go home with someone who already has at least one friendly, confident dog, who can show me the ropes and help me be comfortable in my surroundings. Ideal placement would be in a home without young children (13 and up okay).

Opal is currently in foster, please email Judy.Kao@ASPCA.org if you're interested in meeting her.
