Annabelle was placed with her current family after the family decided to foster her mom when she was pregnant.
Annabelle’s biological mom was surrendered at a local shelter a week before she gave birth.
She gave birth to 12 puppies, including siblings Annabelle and Norman. Annabelle’s foster family had no intention of keeping any of the dogs until they fell in love.
So, they adơрted them both and gave them a forever home.
“She’s the prettiest girl, with blue eyes,” dad said. “He would growl at Annabelle, and she would just love up on him and kiss on his face. When she wants love and attention, its dad. The two of them are just two peas in a pod,” mom said. But Annabelle also has an exceptionally strong bond with her brother Norman. “Norman and Annabelle had a connection that we didn’t even see in the beginning,” mom said. You could see Annabelle climbing over the cuddle puddle of her brothers and sisters just to get close to Norman in videos of when they were newborns.
When Annabelle had to go to the vet, Norman was pretty distraught. He waited at the window and wouldn’t budge until his sister got home. He was exceedingly happy when she finally arrived home safe and sound.
“Norman is a very curious guy. He’s just a big giant goofball that makes us laugh all the time,” says mom. “Annabelle is completely reserved. Everything has to come in her way, in her time.”
