Abused Dog Is Adopted Into Loving Home And Falls In Love With The Baby In The Family
Many people have false views of rescue animals. For example, many believe that because they are rescues, they are not as safe to adopt because they may have suffered a traumatic or abusive past. While it may be true that they haven’t had the greatest past, the rest of that claim could not be further from the truth.
The majority of rescue dogs actually adapt quickly and become loyal and loving members in your family. A woman named Elizabeth Spence found this to be 100 percent true when she decided to open her home to six rescue pets, three dogs and three cats. One of their rescues is named Nora. She is an 8-year-old English pointer and when they got her, she was afraid of all humans.
Nora was abused in her past and this caused her to be fearful of all people. However, whenever this sweet dog met the youngest member in their family, little Archie, everything changed. This dog fell in love with the precious baby and they are now the best of friends…and honestly, it’s the cutest thing we’ve ever seen.
The two do basically everything together now. They nap together, cuddle together, play together…you name it, they do it! Spence says, “At any time of day you’re likely to find a pile of kids, cats and/or dogs lying about the house somewhere.” The couple have big hearts and are unable to turn away an animal in need…especially an animal that nobody else wants to adopt, like Nora.
Elizabeth says the two nap so peacefully and deeply together that she is able to pose them however she wants without waking either up. Because of this, she has captured some adorable photos of the pup and his baby friend napping together. Once you open your heart to these poor dogs and show them that you have their best interest in mind, they become the most loving dogs you will ever meet.
Spence explained that, “If Archie is having a bath, Nora is lying on the bath mat waiting for him to get out. If I’m nursing him she wants up on my lap, too. If he’s going through my cupboards throwing all the dishes on the floor, she’ll be there cheering him on.” So sweet! While Archie and Nora have a sweet bond, the couple’s other children love the animals as well!
It’s incredible to see a family who opens their arms to animals in need. It is also amazing to see pups like Nora grow and learn to love humans, despite being abused in the past. So touching!
