Meet Opal

This young girl is now named Opal. She was part of a surrender that included several dogs. She has had little to no socialization but is curious and will come up to sniff you when you are in the kennel with her. She isn't sure yet about being handled but is definitely curious. There is NO aggression whatsoever. She just has never had anyone actually try to pay attention to her. She lived in horid conditions. Had never seen a vet, had never had a shot. Obviously she isn't housebroken. She won't yet make contact with us but we are working with her and have paired her up with one of our more social dogs so she gets the idea that human attention is a good thing.

She will take some time, patience and lots of love. She is young - between 9 months and a year old. She looks like she inherited more of the "lab" look from her heritage. We are told that the older female on the property (which was a Heeler) was the mom to all. The two older intact males - one was a lab/terrier mix and the other one was probably a lab/flat coat retriever mix.

She is being spayed on Tuesday 5/18/21. We did give her shots as we unloaded the van and she will get her Rabies vaccine and a heartworm check on the 18th.

The road to recover for this baby is going to require work and lots of patience and love. Once she realizes humans are good to her we believe she will make quick progress.

She will be available on a foster to adopt program. We will not adopt her out directly - we want to make sure she is making progress in a new environment.
