My little mutt, Norman, was adopted from South Bend Animal Care & Control on October 16, 2009 at approximately eight months old. I was initially seeking an older dog but when I saw that wild wiry hair and little button nose I fell in love with him. He was found as stray and no one came to claim him. He’s quite popular on our daily walks, we’re often greeted with “What a cute dog!!” followed by “He looks like a Norman” when I introduce him. He’s gotten stubborn as he has aged but otherwise you wouldn’t know he’s an older fellow as he’s as frisky as ever. He’s my buddy and has enriched my life in so many ways. I just wish he could live forever...
