From the Foster: Norman is a sweet & handsome gentleman looking for a home to call his own. It's clear that Norman hasn't had the easiest life but he has all the versatility you could ever want in a companion! Wanna play like a puppy? Awesome! Want to lounge on the couch so comfortably you don't notice your tongue is no longer in your mouth? Achievement unlocked!

This handsome fellow gets along well with most dogs and currently lives in a home with a slew other foster pups of all sizes and temperaments. Quite the goofy goober, Norman loves toys (especially ones with squeakers) & is great at playing alone or sharing with other canine buddies. He's even been known to share a water dish with a feline friend every now & again. 

Despite being one fantastically dashing fellow, Norman wasn't ready to be adopted when he first came to Secondhand Hounds. He was diagnosed with a stage 3 heartworm infection & a possible leg injury. He's since been treated for heartworm & is even done with his exercise restriction. He visited a specialist who confirmed that while he did injure his left hip at one point, he is not a good candidate for corrective surgery & is not in any discomfort as the injury occurred long ago. Now that his medical need have been addressed, he's ready for the fun part of being rescued!

He sure would like to meet that special someone or even a happy family. We've told him his life is about to get a whole lot better so come meet this beautiful boy & fall in love. He will melt your heart in an instant!     Please let SHH know if you have any questions about his previous heartworm treatment!
