Valinda Cortez came across a dog in poor condition while she was on her way to a store in North Carolina. This abandoned dog’s face was filled with despair and surrender to life, and she was drenched in the rain.
Valinda realized that she had to help the dog immediately.
“My heart sank as I stepped out of the car,” she said.
This poor dog spent a considerable amount of time outside in the rain and cold. She was very comfortable. I can tell that this dog has been abandoned.
She had absolutely no one who cared about her. She was wandering the streets, trying to find any hiding spot where she could keep warm.
The dog’s name became known as Noel. And Guido, as she’s done so many times before, started the hard work of earning the dog’s trust so she could be saved.
At first, the dog did not allow anyone to approach him. He growls and threatens every time someone wants to get close. But with her love, she got his affection.
She approached the dog, wrapped her in a blanket to keep her warm, and stayed with the dog for more than an hour to earn her trust.
The Rescue Shelter thought Noel would be perfect for a family who had initially inquired about a different dog – and when Noel met the family’s toddler, they became inseparable. His little owner’s name is Oliver. When Noel met Oliver, the Blochs’ toddler, it was clear that she’d found her soulmate.
“She loves to just stare at him,” Bloch said. “She also likes to stare people down when they’re on the phone.” (Noel was looking straight at him during his phone call )
