Animals, and dogs in particular, can be very fragile.
When Nora, an English Pointer dog, was abused by her previous owners she became absolutely terrified of any human interaction.
Except for this little one.
Nora was adopted from a rescue shelter, and her new owner Elizabeth was aware of her abusive past.
Elizabeth knew that Nora’s ‘sweet and gentle nature’ would eventually shine through.
And she couldn’t have been more right!
The adorable doggo really took to one of Elizabeth’s three children, Archie.
“She came from an abusive background and is afraid of almost everything,” Elizabeth told Bored Panda.
“Not Archie, though – she absolutely adores him!”
Now, Nora and Archie are joined at the hip, and the duo do nearly everything together.
“If Archie is having a bath, Nora is lying on the bath mat waiting for him to get out,” Elizabeth said.
The beautiful story is documented on Elizabeth’s Instagram.
