Say hello to Noodle! We call him "Noodle Doodle Bug" because he is an adorable little bug of a dog! He is a Boxer-mix that has reached his full size, despite those very cute, very large white paws. We post pics and videos of him on Instagram, so check out @dvadelicious to see Noodle in action at home, at the dog park and on trail walks. He is a super sweet, sassy little boy who is full of playful energy.
More about Noodle:
- He LOVES people! Whether on his daily neighborhood walk or at the park, he loves to say hello to people and have his ears scratched
- He is GOOD with kids of all ages, but can become overly excited when playing (jumps & nips hands)
- He is AWESOME with other dogs and especially enjoys playing with puppies at the dog park
- He is GOOD with cats and does not chase them
- He LOVES to be outside, access to a yard would be perfect
- He is LEARNING basic commands (sit, off, wait, come and kiss)
- He LOVES to go on walks or for a run and does not pull on the leash
- He is GOOD in the car
- He is VERY AFFECTIONATE, loves to cuddle, is a little shy about giving kisses, but must lay in your lap when he's tired
- He LOVES to PLAY all the time! Throw a ball, a Kong or play tug of war with him and he will be very happy!
- He IS neutered, up to date on all shots and microchipped
- He is NOT QUITE housebroken. He IS paper trained and will have his accidents on the potty pads we leave near the door he uses to go outside. If no one is home or it is the middle of the night, he will use the paper
- He is NOT QUITE crate trained. If given a really long-lasting treat (stuffed Kong or bully stick), Noodle will go in the crate and relax after a while, but he would rather be in the same room as his family and foster brothers. We do not enforce using the crate when we are not home, but make sure he is gated off to two rooms with limited access to stuff puppies get into and tear up (toilet tissue, paper, empty water bottles)
Noodle is a bright boy and very inquisitive. He is still learning his manners and is still very "mouthy" and tries to nip hands. A forever family with older children is highly recommended. He will stop nipping when requested to "No bite", but he is still learning to control his impulses. It is important to be patient and consistent with Noodle -- he is eager to please and will do anything for a treat.
He is very energetic at times and gets "Super Zoomies"! It is hilarious to watch him run up and down the hallway or in big circles outside, growling and barking in happiness. His foster brothers are older and do not always want to play as often as Noodle does, so we take him to the dog park regularly. He is very good at the park, comes when we call him and plays very well with other dogs there. He really likes to chase his doggy friends and sniff all the great smells.
Noodle has quite a personality and will even "talk" to us when he wants attention or we tell him to leave the toilet tissue roll alone! He is so sassy! Don't miss out on your chance to meet him at one of our upcoming adoption events - check the calendar on the website. I am happy to answer any questions you have about Noodle at email@example.com.
Applicants that are willing to enroll their puppy in obedience classes will receive preference.
Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all dogs/cats before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog's/cat’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the dog/cat is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Dogs and cats MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our dogs and cats back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted dog or cat.
The petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs and cats. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
