Noah at the shelter. His way of getting what he wants (even if he doesn’t know what he wants) is to back in to a corner, bite, pancake to the ground, and bite some more.

At home, tucked in for the night. Noah is sick, he needs time to rest and decompress.

Noah, day one.
Noah needs a tissue. He’s wheezy, coughs, and is snot-nosed. He is on antibiotics, probiotics and has a veterinary appointment this week. For those wondering: Noah bites. He is double collared for safety purposes — have you ever had a rescue dog slip his/her collar? No fun. Noah will receive the rest, decompression time, socialization, and training he needs to be a well balanced adoptable boy.

Noah doesn’t feel well, I call this his “bad wolf” stance.
Noah, day 3.
Noah, day 3. On days one and two, I had to lasso Noah to pull him out of his kennel, then slowly and carefully clip the leash to his collar. Today, day 3, he comes out of the kennel on his own, lets me clip on his leash and we walk together. He’s also shown me that he knows how to sit and he takes treats gently.
Noah, day 4.

Noah, learning to trust. He’ll learn about appropriate behavior and how to be a “good wolf”.
Day 4, a visit with the vet. He’s estimated to be two years old. He has kennel cough and giardia, he will get well. He weighed 57 pounds Monday when he was picked up at the shelter, and 63 pounds Friday at the vet. The core of Little Heart K9’s beliefs is to be: firm, fair and consistent. With these things, Noah will be a happy, healthy, adoptable dog.
