When a dog named Norman was found roaming the streets of Houston, Texas, he was severely emaciated and desperately searching for food.
It was apparent that he either never had a loving home or his owners severely neglected him. Adorable Mutts Rescue took Norman in and rehabilitated him for nearly two months.
Being that he was so thin and had lost all his hair, an important part of Norman’s treatment was a healthy diet- this would be essential to his recovery. Luckily for Normal, a charity called Rescue Bank donated top-notch dog food to feed him, and this relieved the rescue of these costs.
The money Adorable Mutts Rescue wound up saving on food was then put toward veterinarian care and other medical needs. Due to a combination of the loving care, Norman received at the rescue, and a healthy diet full of nutrients, his coat began to grow back.
After several weeks at the rescue, the former stray dog went from looking like gray bones to a healthy puppy with a shiny tan and white coat. His exterior is healing, but his emotional scars will take time, so Adorable Mutts put him in a class for socialization and basic command training.
Shortly after, Norman was adopted into a loving home, although it did take him many days to warm up to his owner. She refused to give up on Norman, and once she earned his trust, the two now have an unbreakable bond! Norman is now enjoying his new life in Canada where we’re sure his mom will take good care of him forever!
Thanks to Adorable Mutts Rescue and Rescue Bank for helping Norman recover!
