Needs ‰'Û¢ Adult Home ‰'Û¢ Physically Fenced Yard. Noah is a handsome coppery-colored 18-month-old 45 lb Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever/ Shepherd mix with a gentle soul and the most beautiful amber eyes. When he first arrived he was very withdrawn, but his personality is emerging in his loving and patient foster home, and he is becoming playful, more relaxed and is truly connecting with his foster family. Bright and eager to learn (especially when there is food involved!) Noah has recently discovered a love for toys! Fetch is his new favorite thing, and he happily delivers his toy squirrel to his fosters to request some playtime. With the classic white chest markings of the Toller and the Shepherd's upright ears, Noah has a charmingly coy expression with one ear up and one down. Noah gains confidence from his humans, and is enjoying his park walks. He can get overwhelmed if the trails are very crowded with people, and is easily startled by loud noises and unpredictable movements so is not suited to city living. Noah loves sniffing and exploring outside, so will benefit from a physically fenced yard. This gorgeous boy has already come so far, and will continue to blossom in a home who will give him the love and time needs as he finds his joy and devotes himself to his forever people. Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a dog from A New Chance Animal Rescue (https://anewchancear.org). We are a 501c3, tax deductible organization. ANCAR is a foster-based rescue, and we adopt within a 90 mile radius of Bedford Hills, NY. You will find the adoption application here: (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-application/). All fields on the application must be completed. Please read about the adoption process (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-process/) so you'll know what to expect when you submit. Our dogs are in foster care and we do NOT have a shelter or boarding facility. AN APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED IN FULL AND APPROVED BEFORE A DOG CAN BE MET. This is a firm policy. Our busy volunteers are not able to respond to questions about the dog or dog meeting requests in the absence of an application. We know these dogs very well because they are in foster care. Please read the profiles of the dog(s) you are interested in prior to submitting an application. If there are specific requirements stated (ie: Fenced Yard or Canine Friend Required) these are included because they are vital to the happiness, health, safety and adoption success of that dog. We are only able to save as many dogs as we have foster homes (https://anewchancear.org/foster/faqs/) and resources for. We provide medical care including vaccinations, testing, deworming, spaying/neutering and microchipping before transporting our dogs. We provide all supplies, preventatives and any follow up vet care necessary while they are in foster care. These costs are high and the number of lives we can save is entirely dependent upon donations from people like you. We do not receive funding from private foundations or government sources. If you can find room in your heart to help us, with any amount, we are truly grateful (https://anewchancear.org/help/donate/). We are a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax-deductible. It is only through the kindness of supporters like you that we are 'changing lives...one tail at a time' by providing our dogs with 'A New Chance.' (https://anewchancear.org) Thanks so much.
