NORTON is quite the talkative boy with a lot to say. He likes to let you know what he thinks about barriers, wanting attention, or if something outside seems suspicious. We have been working on settling and quiet with him and have found varying degrees of success depending on the scenario. Norton is a friendly and energetic boy who is keen to play and work and yet is always willing to take a break and settle on his bed with a bone. Sometimes he has too much energy and we are working on helping him to re-focus and bring his energy to a level that works for the task at hand. He is always eager to give it a go!
