Meet Noah, a mini-Golden Retriever mix available for adoption.

Here is what his friends at Worthy Dog Rescue have to say about him:

Meet Noah. This mini-Golden Retriever mix spent his entire life tied to a tree with an overturned plastic trash can as his only source of shelter. He was fed every other day and was lucky to get fresh water. This was a terribly lonely and neglectful life for Noah, but he has made an amazingly quick transition to home life, and is now soaking up lots of love and attention from his foster family.

Noah has had such a transformational past few weeks – he’s been groomed, spent time in doggy daycare, and received an A++ report card for how he interacted with the other dogs. He has taken on a love for toys and appreciates a comfy couch. He now gets daily walks, and gets very excited when it’s walk time, cherishing the opportunity to explore the outside world. He still pulls a little on leash, but this is all new to him and he’s learning.

He’s currently being fostered with another pup, Gracee, and does well sharing his toys, the couch, and his foster mom’s affection. He follows Gracee’s lead and has learned from her, and would do great with another dog buddy in his home. Noah has been around young kids and is very friendly, giving them a gentle sniff and allowing them to pet and love him. The neighbors have remarked at how sweet he is, and by nature Noah a very friendly dog. Some male strangers have given him pause, causing him to bark, but his friendship can be purchased with a few treats.

Noah’s foster mom describes him as curious, and says he doesn’t seem to have any fear when it comes to going to new places or doing new things. At home, he’s super snuggly and just loves to be acknowledged. When she tells him “enough” he will go lay down. He’s housetrained, and will wander into his crate to sleep during the day, but is not very fond of the door being closed, scratching to get out. That’s still a work in progress, but he learned “sit” in just a few days and is very smart and eager to please.

This gorgeous pup deserves a great life, and Worthy Dog Rescue is happy to help him find his way home. He has been fully vetted, treated for heartworm, and will be coming to N. VA on 9/9, so apply today!
