Almost Home Foundation Dogs: Norway, the Little Fox!

(Check out our FlaxyPet giveaway!)


Hi everyone! Welcome to the feature of this blog where we interview a dog from Almost Home Foundation every week! This week we would like to interview a fox.


Norway: "Hold it! I'm not a fox!" 

TLS: "What? You're not?"



N: "No, of course not! I'm a dog!"


TLS: "Are you sure? Because you look like a fox to us!"

N: "I'm a Shiba Inu mix, actually. We are known for looking like foxes! But I am very sure I'm a dog!"



TLS: "Oh! Sorry! We thought you were a fox, for a minute! Anyway, let us introduce Norway, the two-year-old Shiba Inu mix dog who needs a home."


N: "Hello!"


TLS: "So, why is a cute little fox... I mean, dog... like you looking for a home?" 


N: "I was a stray dog not long ago. The Animal Control people thought I was a lost dog, and they were trying to catch me so they could help me go home. But it took them two weeks to catch me! You know why? I am a fast runner! And all of my thick fur helped me to be right at home living outside in the snow."


TLS: "But they finally caught you?"


N: "Yes. And they looked for my owners. But I didn't have a tag. And nobody had reported me missing. Nobody came looking for me. I guess my old owners didn't want me anymore!"

TLS: "They must be crazy!"

N: "I don't know. Maybe. I've been told I'm a very good dog. I love people, including kids. I love other dogs, too! Sometimes I get nervous when bigger dogs bark at me or hit me with their paws when I first meet them. But I love to play! I live with three other dogs, and we play all the time! I am also very gentle with smaller dogs. I think little dogs are so cute! I just sniff them and lick them!" 


TLS: "Do you like cats?"


N: "I don't know. I've never met a cat. But they're kinda like small dogs, right?"


TLS: "Are you okay with kids?"


N: "Sure! I like to lick them and play with them, and I like it when they pet me and cuddle with me!"


TLS: "Now for the embarrassing question..."

N: "Yes, I am housetrained." 


TLS: "Sorry, we always have to ask. How about crate trained?"


N: "Yeah, I stay in my crate while my foster parents are at work. I don't mind it. I'd rather be with my family, though!" 


TLS: "What do you like to do in your spare time?"

N: "I love to run and play! I think the snow is awesome! I am happy to play with anyone... dogs or humans. I bet I would like water, too! I love to take walks. I love to get my belly rubbed. I am a very happy dog!"


TLS: "Do you know any tricks?"

N: "I can sit, lay down, and shake hands. I would like to learn more tricks, if my new family wants to teach me!"


TLS: "Everyone wants to know... do you shed?"


N: "A little. Not a ton. Don't hold it against me! Most dogs shed at least a little!"


TLS: "We understand. We all shed, too. What would your ideal family be like?"

N: "I think I'd like a house with a fenced-in yard where I could run... or regular trips to a dog park. I'd like an active family who would do a lot with me. They would play with me and spend time with me. I would be interested in trying out agility training... my foster mom says I'd be great at that! I especially want a family who will love me forever!"


TLS: "We want that for you, too! We know you'll find a great home soon, Norway!"


If you're interested in meeting Norway, you can email his foster mom at robertamecklenburg@att.net or call (847) 212-6701. He'll be waiting!

We hope Norway finds a loving forever home soon. We think he would make a great friend for the right people. We think this is a wonderful way to get the word out about individual dogs. Good idea!!!!

I adore Shiba Inu's...they are such intelligent and adorable dogs. Extremely high energy. I wonder what the other part is because this dog looks like it is mostly Shiba Inu. I pray he finds his furever home!
