found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Norman is an adorable Cairn Terrier mix rescued from the mean streets of Houston. He is about 3 years old and weight 12 lbs. He’s looking for a loving and understanding family to help him adjust from being an unwanted and neglected street pup to a life as a loved companion, allowed to live inside the home.
Norman is living in a foster home and learning to be an inside dog for the first time. He already has learned to go potty outside. His foster mom said: He is a very smart boy! In a matter of a day he would go to the door and scratch once to go outside. He stays in my office since the first day and has never had an accident in there or anywhere in the house.
He is good with small dogs but really wants to play with his big furry foster sibling, but he is not interested at all. Norman is non-reactive to cats so far but will need to be properly introduced if his forever family has cats. Norman has not been around kids, but walks up to strangers with his head up and tail wagging. He is very receptive to petting.
Now that he doesn’t have to live on the streets anymore his favorite thing to do is play with toys, snuggle up to his human on the couch and ask for belly rubs. It took a couple of days for Norman to feel secure before he would play, or roll over for belly rubs. He loves to play fetch but we are still working on the return part. He really wants to keep the ball for himself! He never had a toy before so we are not mad at him at all. One of the cutes things he does is the way he struts around and just exudes happiness! This little dog is so happy to be in a home.
There is nothing that Norman doesn’t like about his new life. He takes it all in and is getting more confident each day. In the beginning he had problems with quick movements towards him. He would stiffen up and look ready to defend himself. He now knows there is no need to defend himself anymore…he is safe. He also would drop any hand given treat to the floor and examine it before eating. He obviously has not been given many hand fed treats before. Now he will take them gently out of your hand and joyfully eat them right away. He has learned so much in such short period of time. He is well behaved when left alone, walks very nicely on the leash– or I should say prances very nicely. He will come if you call him and we are working on basic commands.
We think Norman will adjust to any family. He is very adaptable and either a busy or quiet household will work for him. However, there is one request Norman has for his new forever family. Please be willing to give him some time to adjust and don’t forget where he comes from. He may take a little while to get used to you and his new environment. His foster mom said when he first arrived, he howled softly and mournfully the first 4 nights. Once he trusts you, which will not take very long, he has lots of love to give and will happily accompany you to wherever you take him.
**This dog is with Corridor Rescue in Houston, Texas but is available for transport to most major US and Canadian cities via United Airlines PetSafe for an additional $275. A customs fee may apply at Canadian airports. Ground transportation to Colorado is available for $75, and several locations in the northeastern US for $175.
We are a street dog rescue in Houston, Texas seeking to place rescued dogs in loving homes across the US and Canada. Our region has more homeless animals than homes, so we look outside of our area for adopters.
Norman’s adoption fee of $200 covers neuter, microchip and current vaccines.
