Nora -Adoption pending

Age: 8 yrs | Size: 7 lbs  | Female Maltese-Mix

Adoption Pending!

Nora is a sweet and sensitive Maltese mix who was found wandering the streets of Boston. She weighs 7 pounds and is estimated to be about 8 years old. She was very matted, had a mouth full of infected teeth, and had several mammary tumors. PRNE was contacted by MAC (Massachusetts Animal Coalition) to see if we could take her in and provide her with the medical care she needed. Even though she is not a poodle, we couldn’t say no to this adorable little dog! 

Nora is now in a foster home and is settling in nicely. She gets along well with other dogs and is fine with cats, but she loves being with her foster parents most. She will follow them from room to room and cuddle up with them any chance she gets. She enjoys going for walks and car rides and will bounce around with excitement when she sees her leash in anticipation of an outing. Nora is playful, housebroken, and very well behaved. 
Nora went to the vet and had blood work and x-rays done, which look good. She was put on antibiotics to help with the infection in her mouth. She recently had dental surgery, was spayed, and had the mammary tumors removed and tested. Once Nora recovers completely from her surgeries, she will be ready to find her forever home. 

An ideal home for Nora would be with someone who can spend their days and nights with her since she loves being with her people and does not like to be left alone. She is still very lively, so an active person who walks/hikes would be great. Nora would be fine with a small canine or feline sibling, but she would probably enjoy being an only dog the most since she loves attention. Due to her small size and sensitive nature, she would do best in a home without children or dominant dogs.
