Sometimes a dog comes to us with a name that really suits him/her, and that’s the case with Noble.  He approaches a new person or dog with a calm dignity and likes to be close to his foster parents but doesn’t demand attention.

He seemed a bit unsure, at first, about accepting a loving touch and would move away after a few seconds.  Now, however, he really enjoys giving and receiving affection and likes to be nearby, whatever is going on.  He especially enjoys being brushed out, and his long coat is absolutely gorgeous.   Noble loves going for walks and doesn’t pull, but he does try to walk ahead a little bit; he goes for walks in a park and in a neighborhood.  He also rides well in the car and will lie down, quietly, and look out the window.  In his first foster home, Noble lived with cats and didn’t pay them any attention.

We don’t know why Noble lost his original home, but he was taken in by a Good Samaritan who was contacted because she used to have a rescue organization.  She had closed that rescue in 2009, but she felt that Noble was being passed around and took him in to keep him safe while she looked for an active rescue group who would find him the right adopter.  We quickly saw that this boy has a good heart and just needed the right home to help him rebuild his confidence, get rid of whipworm, treatment for testing Lyme positive and neutering.

After 5 weeks in foster care, Noble is in good health and ready to find his forever home.  He  barks when someone comes to the door, and then he’ll peek around a corner while the person enters.  He’ll go to a female visitor more quickly than to a male, but he quickly settles in just a few minutes and goes about his own affairs.  He does let visitors know that he loves ear rubs and treats.  His foster parents both work full time, and they feel that Noble would be happier with less time by himself during the day.  He has a lot of love to give and is just waiting for the right adopters to find him.
