(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - The two dogs that were part of an international rescue from a Korean dog meat farm
this month are now available for adoption, May 12.
Britney Wallesch, Executive Director at Black Dog Animal Rescue (BDAR),
told Pitchengine Communities that Norman and Tamela were spayed and
neutered earlier today, and that both dogs are much more social than they
"They went home with foster families for the week and both area making

Black Dog Animal Rescue will begin accepting applications for the two
rescue dogs today, though it may be a few days yet before they're added to
Both dogs will require other dogs in their new homes as they thrive on the
companionship of their foster siblings.
Norman, the male Tosa Mastiff, has gained almost six pounds since his
Tamela (or Tammy as they call her) is the more shy of the two and would
probably thrive in a home with kids over 12 years old, or none at all.
Wallesch says the two have not posed nearly the challenges that they had
expected and think that with the right adopters, the two pups will flourish.
