Noah — Emerging Hero

Charity Partner: Pilots N Paws
Location: Mineral Point, Wisconsin

What would you do if you were a pup that was born without eyes and used a wheelchair because of handicapped back legs? You become the world’s most beloved anti-bullying dog, and Ambassador for Blind and Handicapped Animals!
This is Noah, a pup that travels to schools with lessons of tolerance, acceptance, and disabilities. He is an outstanding visual for kids to see that it’s ok to be different, just like himself! Known as “the anti-bullying dog,” Noah sends a strong message that it is never ok to pick on other people who are handicapped, disabled, or “different.”
Rescued by Saving K9 Lives, given a Muffin’s Halo, and a donated wheel chair by Mango on a Mission, Noah has proven to the world that he can do anything a “normal” pup can do.
When he’s not in the classroom, you can find Noah at nursing homes, freely giving his love to Seniors. His innate ability to love, makes him a favorite guest. He also enjoys skiing on the slopes of WI with custom-made skis to fit his wheelchair!
Noah was a semi-finalist in the Hero Dog Awards in 2016. He’s been in People Magazine, and was recognized as Wisconsin’s Dog Hero in 2017 for the work he has already accomplished in his young life.
To those who said he should be euthanized for the enormity of his handicaps, Noah can show you a thousand reasons why he was spared from certain death. Noah is a champion for the under dog, as he, himself, is an underdog.
Roll on, little hero. Roll on in your wheelchair, that is!

Voting is now closed. Meet the 2018 finalists on July 25 at 12PM Pacific Time!
