Noel [ADOPTED JULY 22] was surrendered to rescue by her breeder. She was the only surviving puppy out of a litter of 5. For some reason the puppies from another litter constantly attacked her. For this reason the breeder felt that she would do better in a different environment. She is an active puppy but is extremely shy when you first meet her. After she warms up to you she won't leave you alone especially if you have food in your hand. At 7 months she has the activity level of a normal puppy and does well with other dogs. She likes to play with balls and loves the outdoors. Noel is not a puppy who likes to snuggle but I think that will change when she gets a home of her own. She is crate trained and is working on housetraining. She is field coated and does have a full tail. She will require only minimal grooming. She will probably do best in a quiet home. She would not be a dog for someone who has never raised a puppy. She is now at the stage where she is chewing and will require a person with a lot of patience.
