From the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center:
Noelle's story: Noelle would make a great addition to an active family. This girl is so smart she could become an agility star with the proper training. She's intelligent but has an independent streak, which is typical of her breed. With training that interests and challenges her, she will be a dream dog. She's friendly with every person she meets but can be picky about other dogs, so she would do best as an only dog or with a calm male dog who won't challenge her. She acts much differently outside her kennel than when she is in it, so come visit and ask to see her in one of the shelter's play yards. You'll soon realize what a sweet and loving girl she is.
