Pet of the Week: Pearl and Opal
This week’s Pet(s) of the Week are back for a repeat performance because, after six months, Pearl and Opal are still looking for their “fur-ever” home.
Opal and Pearl, a mother/daughter pair, 11- and 9-years-old respectively, came to Rest Easy My Friend Canine Rescue and Sanctuary at the end of 2018. Before coming to Wyoming, the pair was rescued from a hoarding situation in Colorado, where they lived with around 20 other dogs in a van.
Therefore it’s safe to say, these girls’ living situation improved dramatically with the move.
Opal and Pearl have been together since Pearl was born, so they must be adopted together. Rescue Owner Carolyn Sears said, although not positive, the girls are most likely have a mix of terrier and chihuahua in their heritage.
They’re tiny, around six pounds each, have both been spayed, and are in excellent health.
The girls get along well with the other dogs at the rescue, which vary wildly in both size and breeding. They also get along with cats and older children. Due to their pint-size stature, it’s a good idea for the girls to be supervised with small children.
According to Carolyn, both Opal and Pearl love to snuggle and are pretty laid back and mellow. When they do occasionally play, it’s just the two of them.
Daughter Pearl is a little more independent than her mom.
Carolyn said due to their previous life in a van with so many other dogs, the girls would benefit from crate training during the day.
“This pair would be great lap warmers and do fantastic with someone who is home a lot,” Carolyn added.
To meet this sweet pair, or any of the other dogs at Rest Easy, shoot Carolyn a message on Facebook.
