Meet Norah! She is around 2 years old and we think she is a Hound and possibly Shepherd or Doberman mix. Whatever she is, this beautiful girl has a gentle, cautious nature. Norah came to Labs & More extremely shy and scared but has transformed into a friendly, adventurous dog! As her confidence grows, so does her energy. Kids move a little too fast for Norah, so she would do best in a home with children 10 or older, if any at all. She LOVES taking walks and going on hikes. Her leash manners are still being worked on, but she responds well to correction. Norah can be timid with new people, but if they get on her level, she’ll cautiously approach them with tail wags and kisses, especially if treats are involved. She does well with other dogs so long as they’re respectful of her space – she doesn’t want a puppy jumping around, trying to play with her. She is definitely more comfortable around smaller dogs, but she is fine with mellow, larger dogs too. Most new things take time for Norah to warm up to. While she doesn’t live with a cat, she has seen a few on her walks. She just keeps her distance and shows some curiosity, sometimes warning the kitty not to get too close to her. She likes to bow and stick her tush up in the air when she plays, then paw and nudge you; perhaps this is what she would do with a feline friend over time!

Norah definitely still has some puppy tendencies. She is good at chewing on dog toys instead of other household items, but every once in a while, she needs to be reminded. She is great at self-entertaining and when she hears an interesting noise (like tummy grumbles or sirens), she tilts her head from side to side with that puppy curiosity. Once she is comfortable in her environment, she bounces around with plush toys and ropes, or grabs a bone to chew on. Norah is house trained in her current foster home and stands by the back door when it’s time to go potty. She is working on her crate training but has been fine with the run of the downstairs when left alone. She also chooses to sleep downstairs on the couch and is not much of an early bird. Norah would do best in home with a yard or with a very active family – we’re talking multiple walks per day or some good, structured runs. She’d be a great adventure buddy for an active adopter as she builds her confidence. Norah no longer gets anxious for car rides! Now that she is comfortable with her foster family, she hops right into the car and waits patiently for her destination. She needs a family that will continue working on her socialization and confidence, but she’s already made a 180 in just a couple of weeks.
