This one-of-a-kind gorgeous pup stayed in the Adoption Center at Lancaster - where only the "best" dogs go, and was quickly adopted out. But after 6 months he was returned due to one of the family members being allergic. He is a sweet gentle dog, young and ready to learn more and enjoy live! He needs some basic training, which will be easy because he loves treats. He is good with other dogs, well on the leash and a great playmate. Opie is ready and eager to go to his forever home!
If you are interested in meeting Opie, please download the Adoption Questionnaire, fill it out and fax it back to us at (310) 362-0321. You can also meet this and/or other available dogs at our Saturday Adoptions at Centinela Feed.
[Opie is 9-11 months old and currently 54 lbs.; he'll probably grow to 65 lbs.]

All potential adopters are carefully screened through our adoption process:
- If you're interested in an animal, we'll ask that you fill out a questionnaire, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are interested in adopting are a good match.
- You will be asked to submit to a "house-check" to determine the level of safety and adequacy of the area for the dog.
- An adoption fee is required and you must sign the adoption contract agreement, which ensures that if, for any reason, you are unable to keep the dog, he/she to be returned to Forte Animal Rescue only.
- Finally, we personally deliver your new family member to your home.
- Any additional donation would be greatly appreciated, and this portion will be tax-deductible. The donation goes to pay for all of the other animals in our care, many of which come to us with injuries or medical conditions that require treatment. Forte Animal Rescue survives solely on donations and it is for this reason that the adoption fee is nonnegotiable.
- Forte Animal Rescue reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if the home situation or adoptive family has been misrepresented, if certain information was withheld, or if the dog is determined to be a better match with another family.
