August 6, 2017:

Noa was adopted by a wonderful family that can give her the security she needs. Greeting her new family with ‘open paws’, it was love at first sight.

Noa’s Rescue Journey:   Noa (means freedom in Hawaiian) came to us from the Apple Valley shelter where she was surrendered by her family who was moving to a place that didn’t have a yard. She was likely kept mostly outdoors as she wouldn’t go outside to at night for fear that she would be left there overnight. We also discovered that she was afraid of some of the student athletes that lived with her foster dad. She can be a bit wary of people she doesn’t know. She has not been socialized with other dogs so we looked for a family without other dogs, but who was willing to patiently socialize her.
