A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Noella is a most charming middle aged lady ! I love her genuine smile , her naughty eyes and her obvious joy to be with a friend. She is also quite pretty and truly poses for pictures in the most candid and natural way like a girly girl. Noella is at her door, waiting for her stroll to the park or around the block. She is a serious walker, likely house trained, civil with all dogs neared(even little barking ones), glad to see the many kids coming out of a nearby school and sitting patiently as I give directions to a person who lost his way. She enjoys her free time in the yard, bounces and jumps on her hinds like a rabbit for treats and sits perfectly on command. She is so sociable, happy, her tail wags non stop! Noella is with us as her ailing owner could not care for a pet anymore. She lived with countless children of all ages, a little dog and comes with outstanding credentials. She has a sunny personality and a “joie de vivre” she so would love to share with a new owner or family ! Noella is a great gal ! Come, meet her at the Manhattan Care Center and take her home as your new four legged best friend.

For a New Family to Know : Noela was kept as a mostly indoors dog. She follows her owner around the house. She loves playing tug with balls. She sleeps in her own room. She eats both wet and dry food twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. She goes out to the yard to use the bathroom. She goes potty on grass. She is well behaved when she’s left alone. She does well in a crate for about 5 hours. She knows the cue for “sit.” For exercise, she is used to running around the yard. She pulls very hard on a leash.
Behavior Notes: Upon intake, Noela ran in to the lobby and approached me with a loose body and a wagging tail. I asked her owner if she could hold on to her, and put a leash on her. Noela did not allow me to collar her because she kept on turning her head to lick my hands. She sat for a photo, but ran up to me with a wagging tail every time I bent down to take the photo. She walked in to her kennel on her own.
