To apply to rehome Opal, please click the ' Rehoming me starts here' button below. Applications will close when a suitable match has been found. Sweet old Opal is a gorgeous golden oldie who is seeking the perfect place to spend her twilight years. Having arrived with us through no fault of her own, Opal is a little bewildered by kennel life and is hopeful that she will soon find a loving new family. Opal has become a real fuss-monkey during her stay with us, and really human interaction. She is a very bright button who already knows 'sit', 'paw' and 'down' which she will readily show-off for a delicious reward. Opal will be a loyal companion once settled into her new home with lots of lovely home comforts and affection.
Type of home needed
Opal is seeking a lower level of physical exercise, and is a fairly low-maintenance girl who doesn't demand much at all. She is a dream to walk on the lead and settles nicely when back on her comfy bed. Opal's family should have some breed knowledge, or be willing to learn all about sharpeis prior to adopting her. She has lived in a home before and has remained fully housetrained during her stay with us. Travelling in the car is no problem for Opal, and she could live in an urban or a rural area. Due to her age, Opal is seeking a home where all of her things could be all on one floor where she will not have to use stairs on a frequent basis for toilet breaks or nap times.
More about me
Opal is seeking an adult-only home due to being precious over her resources, and will also need to be the only pet in the home for the same reason. Visitors to the home will need to be introduced in a careful way as Opal can be a bit aloof and worried by new people. She can be left on her own for an hour or so at a time to begin with, which could be extended as she settles in. A good understanding of the medical issues associated to Opal's breed will be important for anyone looking to adopt her.
