Noelle, a tiny puppy, was born with only two legs. This little miracle baby faced many challenges from the moment she entered the world. Her mother had stopped nursing her, and a loving foster family took her in. They had no idea she was only two weeks old when they picked her up the day before Christmas Eve. It was this festive timing that inspired her name, Noelle.
From the moment Noelle was brought home, her new family began bottle-feeding her around the clock. Their main goal was to keep her fed and warm, as they knew she would need all the strength she could muster to face the challenges ahead. In the beginning, Noelle pushed herself around with her back feet, inching her way through her new environment. Although she wasn’t immobile, she hadn’t quite mastered the art of moving just yet.
As time went on, Noelle’s family began to question if she was a teacup breed due to her small size. They also experienced a brief period where she wasn’t doing well, requiring the use of a nebulizer to help her breathe. Thankfully, this was only a temporary setback, and Noelle continued to grow stronger.
From day one, Noelle’s foster family knew she would need wheels to help her move around more efficiently. They believed that the earlier she was introduced to them, the better, as it would become a natural process for her. The first time Noelle was placed in her wheels, she was unsure what to do and just sat down. However, with time and patience, she began to learn how to use them and now runs outside with joy and ease.
One of the significant milestones in Noelle’s journey was learning to eat from an elevated food dish. This demonstrated her growth in confidence and ability. When she first arrived, Noelle was timid and unsure of herself, but now she has blossomed into a confident, happy puppy.
Noelle’s favorite pastime is hopping around on the bed, going back and forth with excitement. She loves being around people and has stolen the hearts of her foster family and everyone she meets. With rescue animals, it can be challenging to let your guard down and open your heart, but Noelle’s foster family couldn’t resist her charm and determination.
In the end, Noelle’s foster family decided to keep her, knowing she had become an integral part of their lives. Every day is a new adventure for Noelle, who is full of life despite her challenges. Her ‘never-give-up’ attitude is a testament to her resilience and the love and support of her family.
