In June 2013, Norman, a young racing greyhound was found on the side of the road in Newtownabbey, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The dog showed signs of severe malnutrition and had his ears hacked off.

According to BBC News the ears were probably cut off in an attempt to remove tattoo marks that could have identified the dog’s owner.

When Norman was discovered, he was rushed to Farmhill veterinary clinic, near Carrickfergus, where veterinarians operated and saved his life.

A news report published by Belfasf Telegraph said Norman also had burn injuries on his legs and underside, consistent with being thrown from a moving car.

“As you can see the main injuries he sustained were on his head,” said Farmhill veterinarian Dani Haslett. “He has had his ears completely cut off. He also has other few injuries to his back legs and on his underside, and we’re hoping that he is going to make a good recovery.”

The racing dog needed time to heal from his emaciated state and gruesome ear injuries. Mid-Antrim Animal Sanctuary welcomed him to their facility and offered Norman the care and love he deserved.

George Anderson, chairman of the animal sanctuary, grew attached to Norman and decided to adopt him.

“From the minute I saw him, I fell in love with him,” said Anderson.

Likewise, Norman grew attached to his new human and is enjoying his new life.

The dog is still 15 lbs underweight but with Anderson’s care and love, Norman is expected to fully recover.
