Norman - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Bella Vista Animal Shelter, Bella Vista, AR.


I was looking for a dog to replace our yard dog who had recently passed away. I had been looking online for possibilities before going to the shelters. None of the dogs seem to fit, when I saw Norman. He was limping around the shelter with a bad leg after coming from a hoarders home. We already had four Chihuahuas in our household and really didn't need another one, but something about him would not let me forget Norman. I went back a few days later and Norman came home with us. He has since had hip surgery and gets along great with the others. No we have not replaced our outdoor dog but Norman filled an empty spot we didn't know was there.
