Meet Opal, a furry 8 years old Wheaten terrier mix.
Opal was given up, and for that reason, she may be a little shy around people and other dogs. I don’t think she is used to other dogs, so she may be best as an only dog at first.
Opal is actually a very polite dog- she knows when she’s supposed to go to the bathroom, walks very nicely on a leash (no pulling), and doesn’t jump on people. Sometimes she is polite to the point of being aloof, but I think she’s still figuring out things, and her current stance is “better to be safe than sorry.”
Once she gets to know you and understands that you are there for her, Opal changes to a very different dog. She becomes a little playful, appreciates you petting her and sits quietly while you scratch her ears or her butt.
She might even give you a big goofy smile.
She doesn’t sit for treats (yet) but she loves them and waits patiently for them.
Also? She’s really adorable. That fur! The paws!
Opal would be a great choice for folks who are looking for an introduction to calmer, more mature dogs.
