Opal & Jade
6 & 8 lbs
Adoption Fee: Donation (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)
Opal and Jade were found on the streets of Oakland with 3 other dogs. In the shelter it was obvious to staff that they were bonded. Both dogs did very well with shelter staff, but they reached out to Nobody's Perfekt Dogs to take them, knowing that we keep bonded pairs together. Although Opal was excellent with the volunteers that worked with her, that ended up not to be the case with people she didn't know (vet technicians, directors of rescue groups, etc.) Settled into her foster home, her foster mom and the mom's roommate had no issues with Opal. She bonded with them right away and from their perspective, Opal is a friendly, loving little dog that allows all kinds of handling. However, she was very aggressive with strangers. We have done a lot of work with Opal to socialize her, and she has made a lot of progress. She can interact with strangers in a well supervised setting with someone who knows how to handle her special needs.
Jade, on the other hand, is very sweet and loves everyone. She allows all kinds of handling by just about anybody. We believe that Jade and Opal are not only very bonded, but they are probably related. Luckily, only one of them got the "mean little Chi" gene.
Because of Opal's past, she will need an experienced adopter who knows how to supervise her around people she doesn't know. We don't anticipate she will have any issues with a new owner, but she does tend to do better with women, than with men. Both dogs do well with other smaller, friendly dogs.
