My name is Opal (#3573).  I am a Black Labrador Retriever from South Korea. I am youthful and strong for my age (8 years), and am, at times, a high energy dog.  I enjoy fetch, long walks and playing with toys, but I also take my nap time seriously. I do well in the house and am crate-trained.

I love people, but I may do best as an only dog. I like the company of other dogs, but I prefer to have a say in selecting my friends, and I need time to feel comfortable with them.

I may be too much dog for some, but I am smart, and am making great progress in learning to curb my enthusiasm. I am well on my way to learning “leave it” which is an achievement for a highly food-motivated dog like me. I should continue my lessons in positive ways of self-control and arousal management.

Outlets for mental stimulation and exercise are important for me. I love using puzzle toys for my meals. I enjoy opportunities to spend time with people outside such as gardening or hiking. I would do well at nose work.

My foster family believes that with love and consistent, patient training, I will be a polished gem. Maybe yours?
