Health: Nora has been spayed and microchipped. She is current on her DHPP, Bordetella, and Rabies. She has been wormed and flea treated, and tested negative for heartworm.
History: Nora comes from an overcrowded shelter in California. PUP was asked to help and we are so glad we did. All dogs PUP pulls from California come with health certificates, as required by Washington state.
Notes from Nora's Foster Home: Nora is a sweet, friendly girl with a lot of personality. She has many wonderful qualities that make her a delight to be around - she gets along well with people and other dogs, she is playful, generally very quiet, and completely house trained. Nora is energetic and loves to go for walks - she has great leash manners - and delights in chasing balls and toys that are thrown for her, as well as romping with other dogs. However, she also enjoys relaxing on a soft pillow and having her belly rubbed. She goes into her crate if you say “crate” and is quiet once in (unless there is a party going on outside her crate and she thinks she’s missing out on all the fun). She can get “mouthy” if overly excited or unhappy about something her foster is doing (e.g., wiping her paws after being outside in the rain) – a firm “No!” stops the behavior for the moment, but repeated training and correction will be necessary. Nora can be protective of food and treats around other dogs (but not people), so feeding her in her crate if in a home with other dogs is recommended. Although Nora is a personable, intelligent dog that is eager to please, she is not the right dog for a first-time dog owner. She needs an experienced, strong leader willing to provide her with the consistency and training necessary to enable her to be a wonderful and faithful companion.
Note: The above description reflects the behavior we have observed in the dog's foster home. Although PUP provides adopters up to the minute information on our dogs, we cannot guarantee they will behave in the same manner in a different environment with new owners.
