In Pelham, Alabama an abandoned dog affectionately dubbed Norman who had been roaming the Royal Chase community for three years, was finally captured on Friday by the Greater Birmingham Humane Society’s division of Animal Care and Control, posted the non profit group on their Facebook.
Field Service Supervisor, Olivia Swafford spent weeks trying different methods to capture Norman; a humane trap set for the dog finally paid off. “He is still very scared, but seems relieved to finally be able to rest after reportedly two years of roaming the streets. First on the agenda: a haircut and a bath!, stated the comment under Norman’s photo. According to Holly Baker, the Director of Animal Care and Control, the dog is most likely a bearded collie or a Wheaten terrier. His extremely matted coat worried residents of the community and prompted the continued action to rescue Norman.
A report from WbrcNews stated Norman is scheduled for a makeover which includes a bath and haircut. He will also be neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped as well as being tested and treated for fleas and heart worms. He will then be transferred to Two by Two Rescue where a foster family is waiting for him.
