06-03-08 Norris is a 4 month old cav pup. He has bent deformed front legs but manages fine. He was unsold so given to us to try to find him a loving home. He is very sweet as you can imagine.

UPDATE
Norris front legs were examined today under aesthetic. Helen is not sure why they are so strange, so he is off to see a specialist on Tuesday. We will do all we can to help him and I know everyone will wish him well as he is the sweetest pup ever!

He can be found here http://www.dogpages.org.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=46987&st=70
OR on the Many Tears Rescue website

I saw this little guy on the many tears website earlier and it broke my heart!He is same age and coloring as my Brinkley.
I really hope he finds a special home soon.

Dogpages seems to now require people to register to view listings (which seems pretty darn stupid for rescue listings!!). I don't get this -- I could read these listings last week but cannot now? If the goal is truly to rehome dogs then why put up this major barrier for people -- a tiny fraction care to register so a lot of potential homes will not see these dogs.

Maybe someone can find this dog on the Many Tears site as it doesn't exclude viewers. :sl*p:

Oh poor little guy. That video is hard to watch.:( What a survivor he is-hope his surgeries fix him up and if they do I'll bet he'll run like the wind.

That video broke my heart last night, it really did. :(

Poor little pup. I know Many Tears will do their best for him and put him through his ops, and I'm also sure there'll be a queue around the block of good homes for him.
Still heartbreaking to see though.

I have fallen for this little guy big time, i hope surgery cures him and he gets good home:-)If you log onto the Many Tears Website, you can donate funds to the Norris Campaign(he will need expensive surgery over £2000).Every little donated will help them give him a better chance.

Keep in mind that even the smallest donations add up. If 20 people give only £5 -- the price of lunch -- that's £100. :thmbsup: I don't know any rescue that considers there to be such a thing as 'too small a donation'. :)

Take the cavalier calendars so many of you bought. I get a smallish amount per single calendar -- but lots of people buying them meant I ended up with an AMAZING €700. I just spent €480 on Sam, the dog with the cancerous undescended testicle, having that removed, a biopsy done, etc. That is over twice my homing fee for a dog. Without all those small calendar donations, I'd have taken a major financial hit on saving this dog's life. YOU who donated, and all the homing fees (basically, donations!) I collect on dogs that do not cost me as much, kept that dog alive. Small can mean big. :)

Very valid point Karlin, as my Mum has always said "Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves!" or to bring it up to date "Look after the Pounds and the Hundreds will look after themselves!" :lol:
All those £5 add up folks so be it a couple of pounds or a larger amount please do help this little baby have the life he so truly deserves!!

That's wonderful news. I was telling my husband about him last night...and started crying again just talking about him. He just seems to have such a wonderful little spirit despite his physical disabilities.

I am registered with Dogpages, but logged out, went to another site and then returned as a guest. i could still read the homes wanted parts, but it was decided soem time ago to require registration to use the chat section.



Dogpages seems to now require people to register to view listings (which seems pretty darn stupid for rescue listings!!). I don't get this -- I could read these listings last week but cannot now? If the goal is truly to rehome dogs then why put up this major barrier for people -- a tiny fraction care to register so a lot of potential homes will not see these dogs.

I tried to register with dogpages last year when I was looking for a cat friendly dog, but it wouldn't accept my "hotmail" e-mail address! I agree with cavfan, if I was still looking, Norris's disability would not put me off one bit! Bless him, I'm sure there must be someone out there who will take him!

If you go to Many Tears website and click on" Ways to help......" on left side of page- a group of different methods of helping will come up on the right side of page. Scroll down to Make a Donation button and a new page will come up with instructions for giving $ and it does include "purpose" space so you can specify donation to a certain dog.
