Rescue Dog Who Was Terrified Of Everyone Finds Comfort In Young Child

“We got our girl Nora, an English Pointer, from a rescue shelter seven years ago prior to having kids,” said her owner Elizabeth.  Everybody needs someone to love, and Nora’s previous owners had abused the pup to the point where she is now scared to death of every living being, except one toddler. “Despite having come from an abusive situation, her sweet and gentle nature shone through, and we knew with certainty she would be a wonderful family dog when the time came. She did not disappoint!”

Elizabeth’s and her husband have three kids, three rescue cats, three rescue dogs. Elizabeth adores the relationship between her son Archie and their pup Nora. “Archie is an extremely laid-back, happy, good-natured baby and all the animals seem to respond to that, particularly Nora,” Spence said. “She came from an abusive background and is afraid of almost everything. Not Archie, however. She adores him!”

The duo is inseparable. “If Archie is having a bath, Nora is lying on the bathmat waiting for him to get out. If I am nursing him, she wants up on my lap, too.”

Elizabeth documents their incredible bond and shares it on Instagram where nearly 100,000 people are following the heartwarming friendship.
