More detail:2024-01-15: Hi, I'm Noel Joy (Noel for short) and I'm a 7 year old lab mix (with pointer) and weigh 45 pounds. I was rescued by SCLRR from a shelter. The shelter said I'm a stray, but my foster moms think I had a home once because I know sit, stay, shake, and lay down. I'm also housebroken - but love it when you say 'go potty' because I know that means I get to go outside and sniff all the smells. I don't really like playing fetch, but I do like to explore the yard, do my business, and then come back inside to get more snuggles and cuddles. But I'll never say no to a walk! I'm learning to walk better on a leash, just a little patience and time, and I'll be a perfect angel.
I'm a sweet, calm, affectionate girl and love to curl up in ball and be near my humans - and my brother St. Chris. We're a bonded pair. I'm not really sure if he's my actual brother, but I love him just the same. I'm a little calmer than my brother except when it comes to breakfast and dinner. See, I'm a little underweight so I love having regular meals now and looking forward to fattening up. Extra treats are appreciated - I'll take them gently and enjoy! And just like my brother, I don't counter surf, and I'm really respectful in the house - no chewing or destroying things.
While I was at the shelter and was seen by the vet, they discovered some growths on my skin. It was cancer - hemangiosarcoma - but they removed them. Because my skin is so pink, I should wear baby sunscreen when I go adventure in the sun for a longer exposure.
St. Chris and I are a bonded pair and must be adopted together - which means twice the love and affection from both of us!
