Meet Nora

Pug Rescue of New England (PRoNE) is a non-profit 501(c)(3), all volunteer foster home based rescue organization.
Meet NORA!

The name Nora means shining light and we just know that this sweet senior gal will light up the home of anyone lucky to have her. She is a Pug mix (we think Puggle) and at17 years young, Ms. Nora had been in the same home her whole life and now just needs a patient family to let her live out her golden years surrounded by love.

Nora is spayed and UTD. She does have a skin tag on her back leg which has been examined and determined to be benign. She is also completing a round of antibiotics as she tested positive for Lyme when she came into PRoNE.

She is a friendly gal who shows the wisdom of her age by being potty trained, respectful of furniture and welcoming of other furry friends. Typical of any dog, she is super food motivated! She gets along great with the other senior dog in her Foster Home and enjoys chasing the resident cat but only if it runs and purely for fun. Due to her age, she would benefit from more frequent shorter walks. This gal still has plenty of pep left in her step. She will even howl to let you know she has to go out, what a smart lady! She is still a little skeptical of the car but with time feel she will get more comfortable. She loves to walk and will lead the way! Nora hasn't shown any interest in being on the couch or in a bed, she is perfectly content to curl up with tons of fluffy blankets in her crate.

PRoNE is supported by adoption fees, donations and funds raised through auctions and events. Adoption fees range from $200-$1,000 which is based on age of the dog.
