SAFER: AVERAGE HOME
Opal came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. Upon intake Opal was sociable, and on her relief walk she was reported to walk well on the leash. During SAFER Opal was friendly and social towards the assessor, for the handling she was a bit nervous but as the assessment progressed she became relaxed. Food, toy and rawhide item she showed no interest. The behavior department feels Opal can be suitable for an average adopter.
