We are thrilled to share that Noah is ready to find the perfect forever home! Noah has come a long way since he was first rescued off the streets of Istanbul, Turkey. He has blossomed into a loving, silly boy who is looking for a home where he will be showered with love and attention all day long.
Noah’s foster family describes him as a generally happy little guy. He loves to cuddle, go for walks, and take lots of naps. He enjoys playing and is still learning all about dog toys. He can be a bit mouthy when he plays, so his new family will need to teach him how to be more gentle. Noah is a submissive dog and gets along with most other dogs that he meets. Noah is still getting the hang of house training. He does best when kept on a schedule and his new family will need to continue this training as well.
The perfect home for Noah will be in an urban area because he needs to be near a 24 hour emergency pet hospital due to his medical issues. He also needs to be a regular patient with a neurologist. Noah’s new family should have a securely fenced yard so they can continue his potty training. Noah will do best with someone who is home all day to continue his training and keep up with his medication schedule. Since Noah does not like to be left alone, it would be wonderful if Noah’s new family had another dog that he can play with. He is friendly with other dogs he meets and after a short warm up period, he normally loves to play. Noah can live with older children, age 13 and over. Noah is happiest when he is with his favorite person and would love to accompany them to to the office.
Noah has shown zero signs of aggression, but would benefit from obedience training with his new family. He is still learning indoor dog rules after being a street dog for much of his life. Due to his medications, Noah is hungry all the time. If there are other dogs in the home during feeding times he needs to be monitored or he will try to sneak over and eat the other dog’s food.
Noah’s foster family has this to share about him, “Noah is an amazing dog, and everything about him is impressive – his life story, his life-altering move from another continent, his personality, his love, his appetite, his snoring, and, unfortunately, his epilepsy. However, thanks to the medications, diet, and supplements, we believe Noah’s epilepsy is under control and are looking forward to a seizure-free life ahead of him. The new medication regimen seems to agree with him. Noah is on Keppra, Phenobarbital, and several supplements that, if proven effective, may help decrease medication over time. In addition, Noah is moving to a new raw diet; he is getting MCT and CBD oils and enjoying every second of the extra attention he gets because of the illness.
Noah’s puppyhood must have been tough. He really wants to be accepted and loved. He was timid at first but, with time, blossomed into the sweetest little gremlin. He comes with quirks. Some are more adorable than others. But these quirks make him distinguished and special. He has interesting playing and bathroom habits that are being worked on. His special needs status does not stop him from enjoying his daily activities, but it does make him a complicated dog. You know what is not complicated? How much love you will receive in return! Noah is sweet, loving, and grateful for every touch. He is your playmate, your best friend, your shadow. Are you his hero, his savior, his happily ever after?
If you would like to adopt Noah, gas up the car and be prepared to travel. Noah is being fostered in the Northern NJ area and will not be shipped. FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people’s private homes. For the foster families’ safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don’t set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
