Meet Nora! Nora is looking for a new home because she was picked up as a stray. She is the sweetest little girl with THE BEST snaggletooth smile you’ve ever seen! She has really blossomed in foster care. She was not sure why people were snuggling on her at first but she quickly grew to like it and now she showers her foster parents with kisses. She likes to get kisses too and is learning to cuddle! No one is sure of her background, but she doesn’t seem to have been a loved family member before. She might be a former breeder. She is going through all the stages of puppyhood and has become super playful with her humans and with toys. A fenced yard is best for her so she can run and explore. She is a busy girl and doesn’t like to be on leash if she can help it. She would not be happy in a situation where she would be on leash at all times outside. She will need your patience with potty training as she will mark if you don’t watch her, but she’s on track. She is awesome in her crate - She is a good girl there while you’re at work, and she sleeps soundly all night. If she’s awake, She’ll play quietly by herself inside her crate with a toy.
