Fall River Forever Paws Pets of the Week were found abandoned and are now looking for forever home



These two cute little dogs were found abandoned. They, and Fall River’s Forever Paws, are hoping you will give them their forever home.

Remember those two shih tzus that were found on the side of the road in New Bedford? Look at these pretty girls now!

Opal (the one with more white) is a shy, nervous girl that needs some help building her confidence. She really enjoys the company of other dogs, so a confident canine housemate would be perfect for her! It may take multiple meets for this girl to warm up to you but, given what she’s been through, she’s forgiven. She’s easily distracted by any “interesting” noises and likes to investigate new people once she’s comfortable around them.

Topaz (the one with more black) is more outgoing than her sister but also has an intense protective streak. She needs someone that won’t coddle or baby her too much so that behavior won’t escalate. Once she gets to know you, she’s a sweet, lovable, curious girl that loves to be snuggled in your lap.

Both girls are around 2-3 years old, are good with other dogs, good with cats, and both love plush toys! Both need to be homed with children 12+ as FP doesn’t know their history.

These girls DO NOT need to go to their new home together. In fact…Forever Paws would prefer that they didn’t. Topaz can be aggressively possessive of her sister so unless their new owner is someone that has a great deal of experience with that sort of behavior, they would advise against adopting them together.

If you’re interested in either of these sweet girls, visit and click adopt to download the application. Once complete, you can email it to us at or fax it to us at 508-677-9175.
