Noble – ADOPTED!!

Posted Jul 6, 2014 at 4:32 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!!   Noble was about to make his way to the adoption floor in a NC shelter, but his heart worm test came back positive. So there he patiently waited, only available for a rescue group to pull him. The email pleas were sent out. Luckily a foster home nearby was open and Rat Terrier ResQ swooped in and pulled him out of the shelter two days before he was to be euthanized. His story is a mystery. Brought in as a stray, no one claimed him at the shelter while he was there for almost 3 months. Our guess is that he was originally from a breeder because his tail is docked and he is a full blooded Rat Terrier. Noble is true to his name. He sits very handsome, proud and tall with his front paws crossed. He is grateful to be in a loving foster home while he is going through heart worm treatment. Noble will be available for adoption when he is fully recovered and his blood work comes back heart worm negative sometime near mid August.  Noble gets along well with children and the other dogs in the house. He likes everyone he meets, first greeting you with a bark and then an excited wiggly wag. Noble is house trained and loves to play with his squeaky toys. He is estimated to be 3 to 4 years old and weights approximately 11 lbs. He is great walking on a leash and enjoys his outdoor time. He is crated at night, but would prefer to sleep in a human bed. Noble is a great lap dog and likes to cuddle up on the sofa and watch TV with his foster family. He is easy going and would do great in just about any home as long as the children in the house are 5 years or older. For more photos of Noble in his foster home, check his album:

    Noble looks great. We have one tri-color rat 7 years and one toy poodle. Our pug of 14 years recently passed and we are looking to add a new friend to our family.

    Is Noble still available?

    Hooray for Noble! I’m so happy to see that he’s been adopted. NC has a real problem when it comes to keeping up with the numbers of dogs turned into shelters and dumped on the street. I’m so grateful to you for helping dogs from our state!

    I am a retired teacher who fosters dog in our area for the local shelters. I just got an 8 mo old male Rat Terrier from a private home. An 80 yr old man got talked into getting a young puppy and not surprisingly it hasn’t worked out. The man had mobility problems so the dog didn’t get let out regularly and only got walked on a leash a few times a week. He came into my house and my dogs had to teach him to greet (sniff), and he didn’t know what to do when turned out in the fenced yard. He learned quickly and is now settled at my feet. He needs to be socialized but he is sweet and learns quickly. I gave him his general vaccine today but otherwise he has not had vet care. In spite of that he is in good weight and has plenty of energy. I think he will come around quickly in a home that meets his needs. I live in Mountain Home and am willing to continue to foster him, but need help seeking a new owner. Is there a way your group can help me re-home this beautiful boy to a family situation that will be more appropriate to his needs?
