Welcome Opal! This doxie x corgi x adorableness mix is 5 years old. Opal currently weighs 22 pounds, and is working on losing some of that weight to become a healthier version of herself!
Opal is house broken! She knows that outside is where she does her business, and that indoors are for lounging and watching Netflix. Opal is not the biggest fan of her crate, so she gets the run of the house when Foster Mom is gone. So far this has been fine for Opal, and this trust between her and her Foster Mom has allowed Opal to show off her wonderful house manners.
Opal lives with many other dogs, and is fine with them! She is more of a relaxed dog, enjoying watching others play rather than partake in the playing herself. Due to her shy demeanor, we haven’t had her around kids yet – we think that small kids might overwhelm her. Opal told us that she believes in true, solid friendships, so be prepared to give your newfound friendship with her some time. But, if you give Opal a few butt rubs then that speeds up the friendship process. 😂 Once you become her friend she becomes very affectionate towards you! Foster Mom reports that Opal loves getting pets and sleeping beside her. If Opal wants more attention, she’ll nuzzle your hand to get you to keep petting her.😊
Overall, Opal is a pretty laid-back gal. Foster Mom currently takes her on a few short walks a day, mainly to get her down to a healthier weight. Through these walks, Opal has been able to learn that new experiences aren’t as scary, and is slowly learning to break out of her shell. If short walks aren’t your thing, then Opal is happy with a few short play sessions. She particularly likes attacking the balls that Foster Mom has out for her to play with! That being said, Opal truly is happiest when she is able to just relax on the couch with her person.
