Dog Born Without Eyes Is Anti-Bullying Advocate

Born without eyes and with deformed back legs, Noah, a white Bichon-Poodle mix, is helping kids in a Wisconsin school look past outward appearances. The school, which has been struggling with a bullying problem, called Noah’s owner Lisa Marie looking for help. She knew Noah was perfect for the job. “By the time we leave they don't see Noah as a disabled dog. That's how I want humans to see each other,” says Lisa Marie. Noah's message is spreadingfast, both locally and nationally — he was featured in the school's yearbook as the fifth grade's Favorite Rock Star, and he's currently asemi finalist for the Emerging Hero Dog Award at the American Humane Associations Hero Dog Awards. And Lisa Marie couldn’t be more proud: “If we can stop one kid from being bullied to the point of suicide, Noah has done his job.” — Read it at People Pets
