Pet of the Week: Opal and Pearl
Weighing in at around six pounds each, this week’s Red Hills Pet(s) of the week, are a pair of little gems. Meet Opal and Pearl, who are currently living the high life at Rest Easy my Friend Canine Rescue and Sanctuary.
This mother daughter pair are 11- and 9-years-old, respectively, and are a bonded pair, so they must be adopted together. Hearing where they came from will definitely explain why.
According to rescue owner Carolyn Sears, these girls were rescued from a hording situation in Colorado last October. Pearl and Opal were living with in a van with around 30 other dogs. These sweeties were among 20 of those dogs that were rescued and able to be brought back to tip top health. That’s when they came to Rest Easy, about a month ago.
As with most rescue pets, their breeding is a mystery. But, Carolyn believes the girls most likely have rat terrier and chihuahua in their lineage. Both Opal and Pearl have been spayed, are up to date on shots, and ready for their “fur-ever” home.
The girls are expert cuddlers, and not just with each other. Carolyn said Opal likes to sleep on her pillow, with daughter Pearl nearby on the other pillow. All the dogs at Rest Easy get the royal treatment.
Because of their thin fur coats, the girls love their sweaters. And mom Opal is always keen on finding the nearest heater vent.
Pearl and Opal get along with dogs of all sizes and even cats. Due to their tiny stature, small children are not recommended. Don’t let these photos fool you, these girls are just as playful as the are lovable.
