I am already spayed, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
I am Nora! I am an adorable, fun-loving, very smart puppy. I am a shepherd mix, approximately 7-8 (10/13) months old now and I am completely blind (what does that mean anyway?). Well...because of this is was deemed "un-adoptable" by a shelter in Louisiana and I guess they were not going to let me live. I needed a home...fast. A really nice family in Mississippi learned of me and they took me in. Within a day of staying with them I had memorized their backyard and could find my way around so easily that they couldn't believe I couldn't "see" (what does that mean anyway?). I loved their 5 year old son and we would run and play together. He would hide and I would find him, and we both got so excited when I did!. I really like their other dog too but he hasn't been very nice to me, he is just a grumpy old dog and refuses to play with me. I know how to sit, stay, and come and I am still working on walking with a harness and leash. My foster family really loves me, but they have a small house, and two young kids and a grumpy dog and cat so I can't live indoors. And my folks want the best for me so they think it's time for me to bless a new family of my own. My foster mom says I would be so easy to crate-train, or to use a bell on a specific door that I could ring when I need to go outside. She says I am THAT smart. My family has spent a lot of money on me with going to the doctor and I can't have babies and I had all my shots. I have had all my heart worm prevention too! Dr. Mitchell, my doctor has said that I could possibly gain partial or full sight in my right eye with a surgical procedure, so if you would be interested in doing that, I can give you his information. In a word I am AWESOME!
I am now in a wonderful foster home in Massachusetts. Animal Rescue Front is getting me an appointment with an eye doctor to see if my eyes might get better. My foster home here thinks I am really smart because I learned their home in a few hours. They say I am loving too, but of course I am! I'm a dog! If you would like to adopt me and you live in New England you will be able to meet me.
