This sweet ball of fur is looking for the perfect home. She's 25 lbs. her birthday is Nov 15th, and she is from Smokey Lake. Her dad is a black Retriever with some Blue heeler Border Collie judging by her paws and personality. Full of fun and straight clumsy puppy with no shortage of humor. Nori as we call her is smart like a whip but give her a chance, she's into something. She chooses to play with her own toys but if you don't pick your socks up, they are hers. For the most part Nori knows what pee pads are for but sometimes she misjudges and will mark flooring. She is such a sweet Lil Diva and prefers to sit or lay down while she's eating or having a sip. She's very social when introduced to other puppies her size and certainly held her ground with a 40 lb. previous foster.
Nori loves snowbanks and being Queen of the castle and zoomies are full go 😆 She is terrific on the leash but she's leery of people coming to her and hides behind or beside me till she's ready and then she's OK.
No prey drive to rabbits or birds and when she sees another dog across the street she sits down. Cars coming from behind us, or loud vehicles make her nervous. She is so gentle and knows not to jump up...kinda.
She is still learning to stay so you need to make sure she is secure before you open the door. She has zero boundaries for your bathroom breaks and will jump and scratch the door till your done.
Best part is she shows no signs of shedding. Kids are good but she's super playful and might knock the Littles down.
Her ideal home needs a safe back yard, and another pup to tire her out. She does bark so apartment dwelling isn't a good match. She sleeps in according to her schedule has medium energy and bedtime is about 8ish but it's a good idea to put her out last time around 10ish.
Noreen is one of Gloria’s eleven puppies. Gloria came from Smokey Lake Alberta at the end of October as a last-minute addition to the transport. It quickly became obvious that she was pregnant. She had had a litter last year, but all died due to the cold winter weather. We could not have that happen again.
