Norah

Personality Color: green

Green dogs are a bit more shy and sensitive, maybe a little anxious, but are sweet and they try hard. These dogs will flourish with patient adopters providing gentle guidance and confidence building. They are likely too timid for active homes with children, and would do best in a calm, quiet home getting the TLC they deserve.

Norah spent some time in foster. Here’s what the humans had to say about her:

Norah’s very social and craves companionship, both human and canine. She’s super good-natured, sweet and friendly. Although she hasn’t yet mastered the art of polite introduction, she’s made impressive progress in a month’s time. She will let you know how she feels most times, whether she’s excited, happy, annoyed, or frustrated. She communicates by barking, extending her paw, dropping in front of you, and parking her butt on your foot. Norah loves being around others and having things to do.

People – Norah loves people; her favorite activity (after chewing bully sticks) is saying hello to anybody that is in her vicinity. She’s always happy and joyful, just super excited. She’s learned to calm down the jumping up to say hello during the past month. She’s never met a person that she hasn’t liked. LOL

Dogs – Norah also loves dogs, in fact, we’d love to see her get adopted into a household that already has a dog or two. She seems to play well with most dogs, although she can be a bit too energetic and physically rough with the smaller dogs. Whenever there have been any complaints from dogs, she’s heeded their warnings and has always given the other dogs space until they’re ready to play again. She can get a tad jealous with her person though and has gotten a little snappy when other dogs come in for a pet or treat.

Needs lots of mental activation – whether it’s training lessons or ball puzzles or snuffle mats or kongs with peanut butter or sniffing games or going to the dog park … Bottom line is that Norah needs to be engaged at a high-level to dissipate that high-alertness and prey drive that’s always coursing through her veins. If she doesn’t get mentally engaged alongside her exercise, then she’ll get bored and exhibit chewing and digging behaviors.

Other Norah facts:

  • Huge fan of squeaky plush animal toys (both with and without stuffing)
  • Likes lots of enthusiastic praise after a game of tug or fetch, which she needs to do at least 2x daily with her stuffies lol
  • Very agile – likes jumping and hopping – would probably love obstacle courses
  • She’s very interested in any body of water. It’s cute when they’re puddles or the shower, but keep a hold of that leash by a lake or pond.
  • She was cool with getting a bath in the shower stall
  • Likes getting groomed – getting brushed, rubbing cream on her paws, massaging her head, getting chest scritches
  • Loves to half lay on sofa with hind legs on the floor to get luxurious head and chest pets
  • She’s a huge chewer – loves bully sticks, beef bones with marrow, and any kind of big, durable, rubbery toy.
