They say some of the best things in life come in small packages – well, Norbert is a perfect example of that. This mixed-breed puppy was born in 2009, weighing only 3 pounds before his owner Julie Freyermuth adopted him. He became a registered therapy dog at age one, and currently volunteers in hospitals, nursing homes, disaster areas, and schools.
His name was inspired by the dragon from the Harry Potter book series, the American mathematician & philosopher Norbert Wiener and Saint Norbert of Xanten. Just take a look at his pictures below and you’ll fall in love.
Norbert at five months old
He likes to play dress-up every now and again
He frequently visits children’s hospitals to help those in need
Here he is giving a high five
He also enjoys playing in the leaves during fall
He always makes people smile wherever he goes
How could you not fall in love with that face?
Trying out a new hat
Looking adorable with his bow tie
He loves the attention he gets at the park
But he’s always there when people need him the most
There’s even a book about him coming in November 2015.
