He got a home!!!!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Well, some good news for everyone who has been following Norris' story- he got fostered by a wonderful family two days ago. (at our shelter we allow some individuals to foster for three days to see how the animal does in their home before they fill out their adoption papers). They're supposed to bring him back in tomorrow to make it official!!!! I am soo pleased my sweet Norris has finally found a loving forever home!!! He also has another doggy his size there to play with as well so he will have company and won't get lonely!!! Their other dog is also special needs, so this family is well experienced with this type of situation and will know exactly what to do!Thanks for all those wonderful TCS vibes everyone!! Tomorrow, my foster baby will officially have a wonderful forever home!!

I agree. Norris has the best little temperment and is such a little love bug!!! I am going to miss seeing him hopping around our home though. I cried for the first day (just because i miss him soo much) but i am very very happy for him and his lovely new family!!! I hope he brings them as much joy as he did to Colin and our little family

Thankyou hon (btw, congradulations on georgie finding a new home too!!! you did a lovely job with him!) I think that in the future, i will continute to foster special needs dogs as it seems as though i did well with Norris. It was definitely a learning experience for me- my expertiese is infant kittens.....so i learned a lot. There are two more pups getting surgery soon on their legs who will also need a foster home....so i will likely foster one of them until they're healed up if Colin is comfortable with it

It must be so hard the things you do for these animals and then let them go. Big hugs to you You were the foundation that helped this little baby on his way

That is wonderful he has found his home with a family who will understand like his Foster Meowmy did

Im sure they will! Hopefully keep you updated with pictures of him!
post #14 of 29
G'bye Norris, darlin. Have a wonderful, joyful life! A whole lot of people love you, baby...
post #15 of 29
I'm so happy he found a home Nikki. And that Norris showed you how wonderful it is to foster special needs dogs. I think it's good you were able to place him, now you can help other special doggies!
post #16 of 29
That is wonderful news! I've waiting for this post...I knew it wouldn't take long. I know you miss him and it must be hard to care that much, but he will never forget you or the love you gave him when he needed it so badly! Is there any way you can keep in touch with his new family and check and see how he's doing?
post #17 of 29
That's terrific news, Nikki! Many, many good for Norris and his new family.

I think it's wonderful that you've decided to foster special-needs dogs, as I imagine many people would shy away from the work/responsibility involved.
post #18 of 29
Congratulations to you, the shelter and of course to Norris on a happy ending to a terrible story.
post #19 of 29
that's awesome!!! Congratulations to you and Norris and YOU made his forever home possible. I know he thanks you and loves you for that, for giving him the chance he deserves. you rock, Nikki!

thankyou soo much everyone for all of the support and sweet words you've offered through the whole time i fostered him and up till now it means a lot to have that much support!!!! (especially when you get attached and have to make the hard decision as to what to do). I am sooo happy and feel soo blessed that he found such a nice home! My boss told them they were welcome to take pictures and post it on our poster board at the shelter (we have two for "success stories") so hopefully they will do that! They may also be adopting another doggie to go home with norris and their other pup....so fingers crossed that all works out if they decide to do that (norris LOVES other pups and so does their dog so that would be great if it all worked out. i'm not sure which one yet though!)

I will likely be fostering another dog who is due to have leg surgery soon, so i'll let ya'll know what happens with that and if i wind up fostering her or not. (we're supposed to go out of town the end of the month so i may wait until i get back if she still needs a place).

That is so great, I knew that sweet angel would find a home quickly, like others have said and as u have said he is just too sweet not to And I know how hard it must be Nikki Its great though that Norris has a great home it sounds with another pup and possibly another

Also please do keep us updated on the other doggies that are having leg surgeries and many many for them

Also many vibes for Norris and his new family

thankyou soo much hon! i will definitely let ya'll know what goes on with the other two pups needing surgery as i find out. (right now i'm a bit in the dark- i know they need some leg surgery to some extent but have no idea what or any details. they're waiting for the operation at the moment.)
post #23 of 29
What awesome news!!!!

I am so glad that Norris seems to have found the perfect family for him. What are the special needs of the other dog they have?

Hopefully they will read the letter you wrote and keep you (and us) informed on how he is doing. Norris was a lucky little boy to have had you in his life.

Vibes to the pups who require surgery.
