This English Pointer dog was rescued seven years before her owners decided to have children. Now she made best friends with the toddler in the family. And it’s such an adorable story!
She is the second rescue dog in the family, among three little tykes and two cats, and another rescue dog of course.
While might that sound like a recipe for disaster, the family fairs a lot better than you might think. Especially 1-year-old Archie who has developed a special bond with Nora.
The best part of their bond are their cute daily naps. It’s safe to say that these pictures made us shed a tear or two.
This adorable rescue dog and baby duo are so cute, there’s simply nothing more we need to say to make them even more adorable. Every photo we see makes us fall more in love than the last!
1. This photo captured the hearts of everyone in the world.
2. They pup and toddler asleep while staring at each other’s cute little faces.
3. Pup and toddler make room for all their own toys.
4. How cool is it that Archie’s toy is a puppy and Nora’s toy is a baby doll?
100% LOVE ❤️ . We got our girl Nora from a rescue shelter seven years ago prior to having kids. 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 absolutely did not disappoint! . FUJI-XT1
5. When they’re not together, they still have each other on their minds.
6. Sometimes, Archie likes to dress like his doggie best friend.

7. And the cats like to join the party, too!
I’m so immensely honoured to have had some of my photos of the dogs and kids featured recently online on Kidspot (Kidspot.com.au) and the Daily Mail (Dailymail.com) and several other places as a result. It’s such a thrill for me to show what a love-filled home we have and, equally important, how awesome rescue dogs are. This dog in particular, Nora, had a pretty negative start in life, but is still the most passive and gentle soul there is. Our other dogs, Remington and Drake are equally wonderful (as are our three cats!!) ‘Adopt, don’t shop’ is our motto around here. Please consider this the next time you are in the market for a family pet! And should you be wondering, I NEVER leave the baby alone in bed with the dogs 😊 #nappingwithnora #adoptdontshop #rescuedogsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram . FUJI-XT1
8. Puppy love is the truest form of love.
9. Don’t tell the cats!
Mama Nora had a pretty bad bout of pancreatitis this week. Thankfully these recurring episodes tend to last less than 48 hours so we are able to treat her at home with plenty of painkillers and anti-nauseants. I can’t even begin to tell you all how painful the bouts appear to be and how it breaks my heart to see her suffer through them! Thank goodness she has some pretty caring friends like Archie and Jack to love up on her during those times she needs it the most!❤️ #nappingwithnora #archietheanimalwhisperer .

10. Even when they wake up, they’re still side by side.
11. Time to cuddle up for a nap again.
