This very handsome lad is Chris, the only boy in the Noel Litter!
He's currently right in the middle weight-wise of his two sisters, and he'll probably be a big boy when he's full grown! He appears to be a Blue Heeler/Black Labrador Retriever mix about 5 months old. He's all black just like his sister Noel, such a dude - and full of that wonderful puppy energy so many of us humans would love to have! He gets along well with his two siblings and the other resident dogs, and has yet to meet any kitties or children. Chris ' momma is a very sociable lady and so are her puppies! Chris is a sweet, affectionate, loving pup who LOVES to play! Being a puppy he has so much to learn! He'll need house training, crate training and will need to learn to walk on a leash (something he's not too crazy about right now). We strongly recommend that all our dogs - and especially puppies - attend obedience classes because you get to learn commands together, and it offers an opportunity for confidence building and socialization for the dog, and it also helps to strengthen that ever-important bond between the dog and his human family. It’s lots of fun, too! A well-mannered, obedient dog will be welcomed most anywhere you take him. Though a fenced yard is an ideal place for your puppy to romp and play safely, if that’s not an option then lots of daily leash walks and opportunities to play off-leash in a dog park is the next best thing. A tired dog is a good dog! Dogs of all ages also benefit from mental stimulation – think puzzle toys and games.
Puppies are a lot of work and require a strong commitment to teaching them obedience, socializing them with other dogs and people, playing with them and loving them to pieces. It takes a lot of time, energy and patience to bring up a puppy - and it’s totally worth it! If you're ready to make that awesome commitment to Chris Noel, then fill out an application today! Sweet puppy kisses and warm furry snuggles may soon come your way!
Medical Note: This dog was treated for demodectic mange while in the SOS program. The dog has responded well to this treatment. Please note that demodex can flare up in any dog in times of stress (eg, transport, transition to a new home, change in food, etc). As such, the adopter is advised to discuss this condition and best next steps with their veterinarian. SOS recommends that dogs with a history of demodectic mange be kept on regular NexGard or Bravecto for flea/tick prevention for at least 3 months or until 18 months of age. Please see here for more information on demodectic mange: http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/mange-demodectic-in-dogs/741 . Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor.Adoption Fee: $550
