  Meet Noelle!

Noelle is approximately 4 years old and was freed in a puppy mill raid in Denton County in December 2011. There were over 150 dogs rescued from horrendous outdoor living conditions. After she arrived at her foster mom’s, Noelle spent most of her first two weeks sleeping, with the time in between giving timid kisses. She was just so appreciative that she was indoors with a clean bed and food/water.

After two weeks, it was like she was finally rested up and felt safe. She started playing with toys, playing with the other dogs in the house, smothering the foster mom with kisses, and barking and running around the house like a silly monkey. Now she is the cutest, funniest, most loving dog. She is still shy around strangers but bonds very strongly to her people as she gets to know them.

Noelle is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative. She is still working on her leash training and potty training and will need a family willing to continue working with her in these areas. She really loves other dogs and will need a doggy playmate that she can wrestle with. She’s very puppy-like when she runs around the back yard and barks and plays. She is happiest when she’s sitting in your lap and wrestling with another dog…at the same time.

Noelle lived in horrible conditions before she was rescued, and now she deserves only the best and most loving home there is!! Will you open your heart and home to this special girl? The attention you give will come back to you in spades...and kisses.

Here's a cute video of Noelle. This girl likes to rumble!!!!!

Noelle is located in Dallas, TX.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Connie at conniel@andell.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
