Rescue Dog Forms A Very Special Bond With Her Adopted Family’s New Baby Boy

Many people are hesitant to adopt rescue dogs and cats because they worry that the animals’ traumatic experiences may make them less gentle and loving as pets. However, in the right home, all rescued animals can make excellent companions.

For proof, look no further than rescued English pointer Nora. When she was adopted by the Spence family, she was withdrawn due to past abuse, but she was about to come out of her shell in the most remarkable way…

English pointer Nora was traumatized by her original abusive owners. Even after she was rescued, she remained timid and withdrawn around most people.

However, after the Spence family adopted her, Elizabeth Spence began to notice that Nora was always comfortable and relaxed around her young son Archie.

The first time Elizabeth caught Nora snuggled up next her napping son, she immediately got out her camera to capture the heartwarming scene!

The Spence family has two other rescue dogs besides Nora, as well as three cats. Sometimes the other pets like to get in on nap time too!

Elizabeth feels that Archie’s bond with Nora remains the strongest out of all the pets. He’s always as comfortable with her as she is with him!
