Meet Mr Noel. He is a 5 years young Beagle/American Staffordshire Terrier/Chow Chow/Golden Retriever mix whose interests include walking, hiking, going for a drive and collecting treasures. This boy is house trained, is leashed trained, has a few basic commands down, he gets along with adults he has learned to trust. He likes to sleep with his human or near them.
Noel likes to be left alone when he's eating, he guards his treasures in his room and he does NOT like to picked up. X-rays show his body being battered starting as early as 5-10 months old (broken bones). He does not like eye contact with people he does not trust.
Due to this he will need a family who knows how to build trust with an abused dog. Willing to give him the time he needs to develop trust. He will trust again; it takes time and patience. He loves to cuddle with me in bed as long as he feels safe and I am not too grabby.
Noel will be happiest when he can be a part of his person's daily activities. His family will need to be sure that Noel feels like he is part of a close knit group. He is neutered, micro chipped, vaccinated, licensed and has a complete health workup. Due to Noels lifetime of abuse he has fear aggression triggers; so him being an only pet and with a family without children would be best. He will go home with his new family with all his medical records and DNA test results.
Are you looking to add a shy, willing to learn to trust, handsome, smart boy to your family? What about a social companion ready for any adventure with you? Come see Mr Noel! He is available for adoption through the Miss Gabriel Foundation.
