Noelle
Noelle was an owner surrender to Maricopa with her two “siblings” – red heelers Reece and Horace. All three were “fear dogs” on the kill list and Noelle was defensive with humans more so than other dogs. She continues to correct all dogs and, like a true cattle dog, protects the master of the property by greeting visitors in an unfriendly way (Noelle is an ankle biter). She has been with us for one year and continues to have fear behaviors although they are much improved. Noelle keeps bad manners in check; letting the other dogs know when they are doing the wrong thing. We have taken a liking to Noelle and added her to our sanctuary.
