My story

NoelBreed: American Pit Bull Terrier, Boxer mixHouse trained: PartiallyGood with other dogs: NoGood with cats: NoGood with kids: NoPreferred home environment: Securely fenced-in yard (six feet high or taller) required Intake date/origin: December 2017, found strayVetting: Already spayed, microchipped, and UTD on vaccines including rabiesAdoption fee: $150Meet Noel. This girl has been with us ever since December 2017, when one of our staff members found her hiding under a dumpster. Noel is a medium-sized, active girl looking for just the right person.We're going to be honest up front - Noel has her issues. Before we go on to discuss those in detail, we want to share some positives about Noel. Noel has blossomed into a sweet, loving, playful, and happy girl. She has the knack of making her caregivers smile at her silly antics. She loves to spend time outside, whether that's running around, watching the world around her, or simply being by one of her caregiver's sides.Now to Noel's special needs. Since Noel has been in the shelter system since December 2017, she has developed some behavioral issues. She will need the right person to work with her to overcome these issues, and she may never be a "perfect" dog, but we are holding onto hope that there is someone out there who will help her become the best dog that she can be. Even if you are not the person who is able to provide for Noel's needs, please share her information far and wide in hopes that somebody else will step up and give her a chance.Noel's problem areas are the following: 1) Noel cannot live with other animals - at least, not for the time being. She has shown aggression toward other female dogs. She has had a male dog playmate in the past, but she does need to be the only pet unless otherwise determined. 2) Noel likes to jump high and climb. She will need a securely fenced-in yard, and the fence must be a minimum of six feet tall to prevent her from scaling it. 3) Noel is people selective. We don't know if her behavior has changed since living in the stressful shelter environment or if she was never properly socialized as a puppy. However, anyone interested in fostering or adopting Noel must meet her several times. Any home where Noel might be placed must have no visitors.The longer Noel remains in the shelter environment, the harder we know it will be for her to find a home. She will require much patience, time, and training to help her overcome her issues, or at least make them manageable. Perhaps, even with something as simple as a shift from living in a shelter environment to living in a home, some of her behaviors might improve.Will you help us help Noel? If you are interested in fostering or adopting her, please fill out the correct application on the corresponding page on our website.
