In March, the animal rescuers at Speranza realized that the Bloch family, who had come and inquired about a different dog, would be the perfect family for Noel, who was turning out to be such a softie.
"We actually talked to Speranza about a different dog before, but then they brought up Noel," Eric Bloch told The Dodo. 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 to The Dodo.)
