Noelia was found on the border of Texas and Mexico in September 2019 in a cemetery where she had been dumped with her 4 nursing babies 🙁 When she was first rescued, Noelia had a spinal injury that left her paralyzed in her hind end. She had no use of her hind legs. Sadly, she was not producing milk and her babies did not make it. SNARR put her on transport to NY and one week later she had surgery by a top orthopedic surgeon to fix her spine. Within a week of her surgery, she was standing with assistance and by week 2, she started hydro and physical therapy. By week 5, this amazingly resilient girl was RUNNING!
Noelia is a sweet, gentle soul. She didn't know how to be a dog when she was first rescued. Beds, toys and treats were like wonders to her. She used to ask permission to take a toy, but now she just goes for it. Watching her blossom has been incredible! It does take her a minute to warm up to new people and surroundings, but once she knows she's safe she is a happy, loving little girl! She will come to you for affection and loves her head scratched. She is learning how to play and is quite the goof when she is in the mood! She loves toys, and loves to be outside exploring more than anything else. She likes other dogs, especially those who will play with her. She's not shy about food at all! At mealtime, she bolts to her specific spot in the kitchen, sits and wait her turn. No one taught her this -- she just watched what the other dogs did and is a quick study! She is super smart, gentle, and would be great with a patient family who understands she is a bit shy and needs help to bring her out of her shell.
Noelia's ideal home: Noelia will need a family who knows she is still becoming the dog she was meant to be; one that will continue to keep her active to maintain the physical progress she's made, and also who will help her continue to heal emotionally from her past life on the streets. No small children, please. We feel they are too wild for her comfort. She will never bite or snap, ever, but we know she'd do best in a calmer environment. Noelia must have a home with another friendly, female, confident pup and a fenced in yard. She is a remarkable girl with a remarkable story of recovery.
To apply to adopt Noelia, fill out an application at www.snarrnortheast.org/applications.
**Meet and greets will not be scheduled without an approved application.**
*Health: up to date on required vaccines, spayed, microchipped. Noelia was hind-end paralyzed when she was first rescued in 2019, but spinal surgery helped her regain feeling in her hind legs and she is completely mobile now! However she does need her bladder expressed daily as a result of her original spinal injury. Her foster mom will happily show any adopter how to do this, as it's pretty simple!
FAQs -- PLEASE READ ALL BEFORE EMAILING
**Please note that SNARR NE is a volunteer-based organization. While our volunteers will try to respond to you as quickly as possible, it is helpful if you review the following information about our adoption process before emailing:**
- LISTED BREED(S) & AGE: We are taking our best guess on age, breed, and size when fully grown, based on the puppy's/dog's physical appearance and what we might have learned about one or both parents depending on the situation. *NOTE* We rarely know a dog's exact age, nor are we able to tell the true or full breed mix of dogs as our information is limited most of the time. Because we often do not have access to medical records at the time that we are posting dogs to Petfinder, there are sometimes discrepancies between what is posted on Petfinder and what might be listed on a dog's medical records.
- SNARR'S ADOPTION PROCESS: The first step in adopting or meeting a SNARR dog/puppy is to fill out an application at www.snarrnortheast.org/applications. Once we receive your application, one of our adoption application processors will contact you, review our adoption process with you, and answer any additional questions you may have. **We do not go on a first-come-first-serve basis for adoptions, but on best fit for a family and most importantly the puppy or dog.**
- MEETING ADOPTABLE DOGS: Meet and greets will not be scheduled until after your adoption application has been fully processed by one of our adoption processors.
- APPLYING ONLINE: If you fill out an online application, please do so from a computer (not a mobile device), make sure you answer ALL the questions in as much detail as possible, and that you receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive a confirmation email, that means we did NOT receive your application.
- PUPPIES: We do suggest listing a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice on your application if applying for a puppy with several litter mates.
- ADOPTION FEES: $495 for puppies / $375 for adults. Adoption Fees for Seniors, Special Needs and Bonded Pairs vary
