Thor is looking for his person! He is an exuberant young fella who needs people who are willing to do fun activities with him. Did you say WALK?! Thor is a big fan of long walks, car rides, and jogging alongside his people. He is a high-energy guy who sometimes needs help calming down. He is learning basic manners through positive reinforcement training and is doing excellent. Thor is not used to living as an indoor dog, so he will need patience when it comes to settling into a proper home environment. Thor has prey drive tendencies, so please NO small animals in the home and NO farm living for this guy. He would benefit from a large, fenced backyard where he can run around and get his zoomies out! If you’re looking for your next furry best friend then Thor may be the guy for you. If you’re patient, outgoing, and willing to love then follow the steps below.
Thor is still waiting to be neutered so he needs a LOCAl foster to adopt home that can be sure to keep him safe and well-loved before then;
