Noel is a fantastic medium-sized dog with the uncanny ability to bring a smile to your face and a laugh to your day! In few words, she is everything most people want in a dog - silly, playful, and plain awesome. Not a boring day will pass with this girl in your life!

Noel greets people in her signature wiggly fashion. Although she needs a little work on her greeting manners (she does jump up at first), she's quick to show off her skills - she simply loves bouncing everywhere, including on top of the tire in our play yard. And what about petting and cuddling? Not a problem with Noel, who loves all the attention she can get. She plays excellently with Nathan, a shelter resident, so she may do well with other dogs about her size and energy level. Noel has shown us she simply does not prefer the company of children, so a home with only adults will be best.

Looking for a fun dog to spend your days with? Consider Noel!



Meow of the Month:


Hi, my name is Ariel. You may see me cuddling up in my blankets while I look at you - I like to do that a lot. (I guess first impressions aren't my thing.) As you may tell, I am a little new to the shelter and still getting used to my surroundings. Even though I'm a bit shy, I still would love to find my new home as soon as possible. Will you give me a chance to be yours?

Meet me at Loving Heart Animal Shelter in Lafayette!

I have been spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $60.
