Noelle is an 8 year old, approx. 80 lb fluffy cuddle-bug. Her main goal in life is to lay around the house and be loved by her humans, she'll even give you the classic "pyr paw"! Noelle is an older girl, but every once in a while the puppy in her comes out: tossing her toys all about the house, chasing a dog friend around the yard, or running about with her humans - but only in short bursts of course, because playing is such hard work! We recently discovered that Noelle also loves the snow when her and our dog spent a day chasing each other around on the mountain. We didn't even know that she had that much energy in her!
Noelle loves going on shorter walks using her Gentle Leader, but is not a fan of dog parks as she gets overwhelmed with too many new dogs. She would do well in a house with a calmer dog to hang around and has lived successfully with both dogs and cats in the past, but would prefer to be fed separately. She would do best in a house with no small children as she tends to get impatient with their energy. She has most of the basic commands down, is house-trained, and rides very well in a car, but is not crate trained. She is currently being fostered in Tigard, OR.
All our dogs require secure VISIBLE fencing. Adoption fee $200
