Adopt Me: Beautiful Norma is quiet and well-behaved (adopted)

She is good with children, cats, and babies. . . babies are her favourite!

Hi my name is Norma! My foster mom says it’s a mystery where I came from. I was afraid of the hardwood floors and the stairs and even the television at first, but I got over that pretty quickly. 

My foster mom says I am the best dog ever, and she can’t imagine why I wasn’t claimed from the pound. She says I’m so good she should adopt me all to herself! 

When people come to visit they leave thinking about me too, apparently I leave quite the impression, mommy says it’s my ‘soulful’ eyes. My foster mom says I am good with children, cats, and babies. . . babies are my favourite! I haven’t been around a lot of dogs. I like some, but a couple I met weren't a good fit for me.

I don’t really bark much at all, not even when people come to the door, I’m so quiet in the house and on my walks. I just like to lay about at your feet, or quietly on the carpet. 

I love walks, and my foster mom says I walk nicely on a leash and don’t pull, whatever that means . . . all I know is when I start to get enticed by a smell or something distracting my foster mom just tells me not to, and then I trot along beside her and forget all about it. If I was let off leash I would run, so foster momma says a home with a fenced yard is best.

Mostly I just like my toys to chew, it’s hard sometimes to know which toys are mine and which ones are the kids but I am learning, mommy says I learn super quick, but don’t leave out ziploc bags, I love those!

I am a happy dog, I just love everyone I meet, and I like to just be part of the family, and I like napping and walking. I eat like the dainty lady dog that I am, and take treats gently even from children’s hands. 

Mommy says that I will get scooped up pretty quick because I’m such a perfect dog, I hope so, I can’t wait to settle into my forever home, will it be yours?”

Norma is spayed, vaccines are up-to-date, and she is ready for her forever home. If you can be that perfect home, please apply at
