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 spreading fast, both locally and nationally — he was featured in the school's yearbook as the fifth grade's Favorite Rock Star, and he's currently a semi 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
