Norah came to us with what we are guessing is her biological family member, Margo in mid-2018 from what was initially described to us as a hoarding case in Twiggs County. As we learned more about their origination, our hearts broke for these poor mama dogs. Because when they came to us, they did indeed have three puppies between them, all three of which were approximately 6 weeks old. Norah and Margo have been through a personal purgatory that if a person had gone through, they would be hailed as superheroes. They and 36 other dogs of similar breed and ages were on a property under what from all reports has been described as a den of horrors. None of them had any sort of medical care, all were living in pens outside with little to no shelter. Many had teeth rotten from a steady diet of white bread. Little to no human contact was given to any of them.

Despite all of this, they were the best moms to their puppies. The puppies grew up and have since found forever homes of their own where they are loved and cared for. Norah and Margo both have spent extra time with us learning about people, socializing with other dogs, and getting plenty of medical care and a steady diet of good food. They have both been so appreciative. It’s truly been a wonder to see their personalities blossom!

Norah is a flirt. She likes to give you a big puppy smile and dance away from you just out of reach when you go to tickle that little pointy face of hers. Her zoomies are the best; she’s like a blonde tornado of glee. She likes treats and to dance with Margo. She’s a rough and tumble tomboy that likes laid-back personalities in her canine companions. She gets along great with our small dogs and plays in the yard with them every day. She does fine with other big dogs as long as they aren’t overly dominant. Despite her horrific past, she has no problems with things like food or resource guarding. She’s a soft, gentle, big bottomed girl that is still learning about how nice it is to be part of a pack that includes people. She is not a fan of the camera shutter sound and pretends to be a walrus with big eyes when it’s around.

Norah is still learning the ropes of walking on a leash completely comfortably, and she is making good progress. Her ideal family would include someone that appreciates her courage and is willing to give her the patience and love she needs to bridge that last gap of going from rescue dog to full fledged, comfortable member of a family. It may take her a couple of meetings with her potential family to really get a good sense of her goofy personality; this will be determined by our manager on a case-by-case basis. Norah tips the scales at approximately 60 pounds.
