Norman is a senior Dachshund that has had the unfortunate luck to wind up at an open admission shelter. Tragically, the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter is overcrowded, and therefore dogs entering the system need to be placed in foster homes, approved rescue organizations or with adopters as quickly as possible. All kennels are full as is the receiving area; there is nowhere to place the new intakes. Irresponsible owners continue to surrender their dogs. Lives will be lost for lack of space.

What really happened to 10-year-old Norman is confusing; some say he was dumped at the shelter, others say he was a stray, however another source states Norman was confiscated from his former home and owner. Nevertheless, this senior needs a loving home. A volunteer described him:

“WITH A HORRIBLE EYE INFECTION AND JUST THE MOST BROKEN HEART EVER, YOU CAN SEE THE ABSOLUTE ANGUISH ON HIS LITTLE FACE AND WE NEED TO CHANGE THAT TO A BIG, DOXIE SMILE! HE DESERVES SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS! HE IS URGENT AT SAN BERNARDINO…WHO IS DEADLY, DEADLY, DEADLY TO SICK AND SENIOR DOGS.
NORMAN ID #A505669″

A Facebook page to follow this dogs’ heartbreaking plight can be found by clicking here. Click here for Norman’s Pet Harbor listing. “I am a male, brown and black Dachshund min. Shelter staff think I am about 10 years old. I have been at the shelter since Jul 06, 2017. If I am not claimed, after my stray holding period, I may be available for adoption on Jul 21, 2017.” Share this dog with approved rescue organizations, friends. family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives, and isn’t Norman’s life worth saving? You bet it is!

    I wouldn’t think it would be that difficult to found out how Norman ended up at the shelter. Hoping for the best for Norman.

    This baby needs help. His eye looks so infected. Easy to fix. Anyone contact Frosted face? Can’t adopt him? donate to a wonderful group. Frosted face always seems to come through. Please help where you can.
