Norman was a stray dog walking on the streets in Houston, Texas, he was mangey, emaciated, and desperately looking for food. Adorable Mutts Rescue rescued him and took care of him for nearly two months because he was so skinny and had lost all his hair.
Luckyly for Norman, Rescue Bank decided to help him. They donated dog food to feed him, relieving the rescue from a costly part of his care.
As a result, the money they saved on food was put toward vetting and other medical needs.
Between the loving treatment he received from the rescue and a diet filled with nutrients; Norman’s coat began to grow back.
Several weeks after he was rescued; the former stray went from looking like a gray bag of bones to a healthy pup with a shiny tan-and-white coat!
He was very wary of humans, so Adorable Mutts put him into a class for socialization and basic command training. There, he made huge strides toward getting ready for adoption.
When his new mom took him home he was still quite skittish, and it took several days for him to warm up to her. But she refused to give up on the pooch, and she patiently waited for him to come around.
Gradually, she earned his trust, and now the two have an unbreakable bond.
While he’s still nervous around strangers, Norman couldn’t be happier to spend time with the ones he loves.
It was a long journey for this pup, but he’s now enjoying life in his forever home in Canada! We’re so glad that this sweetheart got the second chance that he deserved.
