Noyo (Dog)

Noyo is about 5 years old. We rescued him, so his exact age is not known. Noyo is some kind of heeler. My daughter and I were a couple of hours north on a weekend getaway. We had talked about rescuing a dog from a shelter, and were ready to do so.

We visited the shelter, and found our dog. We named him Noyo because that is the name of the river he was found by. He was dumped, along with his sister out on the streets when he was quite young. They were pretty much wild dogs, eating trash,and living a hard life.

A man after some trying managed to handle and transport the two dogs to the local no kill shelter. The dogs spent about 6 months in the shelter, becoming accustomed to people. The sister was already adopted out, when we toured the shelter. We saw this adorable shy guy, and had to give him a good home.

He is now, 4 years later, the happiest, most social dog in the world. No fear, just love. He has a great life, and gets to walk in the woods daily. We couldn't live without our Noyo.

You did a great thing by adopting Noyo! He is a great looking dog and I bet he could break a thing or 2 with his happy tail.

Your beautiful boy really does look like he has quite a bit of full-breed brindle Dutch Shepherd in him, though his body build is a little slimmer. Thumbs up for him and you on his adoption!
