NOELLE adorable, young, smooth coat, high percentage border collie cross was surrendered to a shelter by her family. Her new foster mom at ARCBCR is bewildered as to why someone would give up such a lovely, happy and affectionate girl. But on the bright side...there is going to be one happy family out there who gets the privilege of adding her to their household.

Noelle appears to be around two years old. She is a small frame girl who weighed in at a skinny 25 pounds upon intake. She is now on a weight gaining diet with a target weight of around 30 pounds She is sure to put on those needed pounds in no time as she is very food motivated. Other then being a little on the skinny side, she appears in good health.

She is active and very playful; has a nice family friendly temperament...good with other dogs and looks to people for direction, affection and attention. Was giving kisses immediately. She is well behaved, has nice energy, and loves being with her people...when off leash she stays close by and recalls nicely.

Noelle is scheduled for vetting on September 5th. Her foster mom is taking applications in anticipation of a clean bill of health. She will be spayed, UTD on vaccinations, on heartworm and flea/tick prevention, dewormed and microchipped.

Noelle is being fostered in Apple Grove, VA., just west of Richmond. Questions about Noelle can be sent to
