Nollie's Sponsorship Page

Miss Nollie had her photo shoot and is ready to show the world what a beauty she is! She landed in the shelter with her two sisters, Betsie and Corrie, and all three girls look very different. Corrie was adopted, and her family did a DNA test that shows 46% Australian Cattle Dog and 39% Great Pyrenees, with several other breeds each coming in at amounts from 1 - 3%. Of course, we know that canine DNA is not an exact science, plus it's possible that Nollie and Corrie have different dads. But based on her behavior, we think Heeler/Pyr is a reasonable guess.

Nollie gets along well with all the dogs she has met, and she plays outside a LOT. In her visits to our vet, she has been curious about the clinic cats, but she hasn't shown any aggression or inclination to chase. So we think with the right introductions and careful supervision in the beginning of a new relationship, Nollie could probably live in peace with a cat. We have only taken her into our chicken yard once, and she did surprisingly well -- her Pyr side seeming stronger than her Heeler side. As with cats, she was mildly curious about the chickens, but even when the rooster flapped his wings and crowed loudly as he stood within her reach, Nollie didn't react at all. The same is true with her sister Betsie, so we think perhaps they were exposed to chickens when they were young puppies in their first home.

Nollie is getting better at walking on the leash but needs more practice, as she wants to wander left to right to investigate everything she sees and smells, so she can easily get her human tangled up in the leash. She seems to be house-trained, but she spends so much time outdoors that it's hard to say for sure. She doesn't potty in the 5' x 10' kennel where she eats and sleeps, so we think that once she moves to a home where perhaps she will spend more time inside, she will just need frequent opportunities to go outside to reinforce good habits.

Nollie is really a sweetheart but has TONS of energy that needs to get burned off. With the number of dogs and puppies we take care of daily, we don't have the time to take her on long walks or hikes in the woods. But we think Nollie would be a great buddy for someone who lives a very active life. Hiking. Camping. Going to the lake. Nollie LOVES playing in the kiddie pool in her play yard. She has never had the chance to visit a lake -- wouldn't you like to give her that chance? Submit an application for Nollie today!
