Noelle is one of the sweetest dogs her foster mom has had the pleasure of getting to know. She wants so badly to have a person to love. Noelle loves toys, whether it’s a good bone or stuffed animal. She also loves cuddling up on a soft bed. She is leash trained, potty trained, knows basic commands, and is crate trained, though she is fine to have full run of the house as well. Noelle loves to be around people and is the perfect work from home buddy as she will just curl up next to you and not bark or whine. She is fantastic with other dogs (smaller and larger than her), men, and women. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body.
Noelle joined F.U.R. from Putnam County, FL. She was one of three dogs who were abandoned when someone moved out and left them behind. To add to this terrible story around the holidays, she was hit by a car and had both of her back legs broken, and she had a dislocated hip. She was discovered lying in a ditch, unable to drag herself out for help. The staff at Putnam County Animal Services rescued her and immediately took her to the University of Florida, where she had surgery under their shelter outreach program.
We've had many major medical cases and orthopedic repairs, but this is our first situation where the dog had surgery on two broken legs at the same time. Noelle had surgery on both legs, and last month she had another surgery to remove some of her implants. She is now healthy, happy and ready to find her furever home!

How You Can Help
