Those sad, pleading eyes belong to Noodles, a 9 year old Shar Pei boy who is at Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool and needs to find a home where he won’t need to be left alone.
Noodles was originally at Freshfields in 2012 because his owner was moving house and couldn’t take him. He found a great home, but poor Noodles loved his new owners so much that he was panic stricken when they left him to go to work. He thought he had been abandoned once again. He was so upset that he became destructive, and he couldn’t cope with being contained and was injuring himself, so he sadly had to be returned to Freshfields.
Other than the separation anxiety, Noodles is a perfect gentleman at home. He is a spotlessly clean, well-behaved boy and is fine with visitors provided they are introduced to him. He is great on walks and will go for miles, and he is fine with most dogs while he is on the lead. He enjoyed many days out and he never put a foot wrong; the only time he reacted to other dogs was if they were black Labradors or very over-excited. Noodles needs to be the only pet in his new home though as he merely tolerates other dogs rather than enjoying their company.
Noodles needs a home with someone around all of the time to keep him company and very gradually build up the time he is left alone. Noodles will make a fantastic, loyal companion. He just needs time to know he can trust you and then will show what a sweet boy he is. He would benefit from a home with previous experience of Shar Peis, or of nervous dogs, and he needs a home where there are no young children.
Noodles is still able to go ‘home’ at weekends with his previous adopters, and you can read their account of living with the lovely Noodles on the Freshfields website here, but it isn’t the same as having a proper, permanent home, and that is what Noodles is waiting for.
If you think you could be Noodles’ forever people and can offer him a home where someone is around virtually all the time, please contact Freshfields Animal Rescue as follows:
