This sweet and loving, approximately 2-years-and-8-months-old retriever/boxer-mix girl may be a little shy at first, but she warms up quickly, especially to attention, treats and squeaky toys. Owner surrendered due to a family member being allergic, Norie is already spayed and ready to go after her reduced fee is paid.

Norie needs owner(s) willing to give her their time, attention, love and exercise in a fenced area or on leash, and basic obedience training, in a good, loving, truly forever home where she can be a faithful companion and pet.

For more photos and a video, go to Shelter Dogs. Norie’s ID is #0598. Pay her a visit. She’s available through next Saturday at the shelter.
