Thorton came to us through no fault of his own when his guardian could no longer find pet friendly housing.
Thorton is a very sweet boy who will enthusiastically greet everyone he meets.
He is house trained and food motivated making him a joy to train!
Thorton can occasionally be leash reactive to other dogs, he does best greeting off leash though as he can be an over-excited greeter.
Thorton has lived with cats without issue and has lived with poultry though he was quite inquisitive of them. He is used to being left alone for 8 hours a day without issue, he does cry for the first few minutes after being left but eventually calms down on his own.
He is not destructive and was not very vocal in his previous home. Thorton has never lived with children though he has done fine around 8 year olds and up.
Thorton has allergies that cause his skin to become painful and itchy.
He takes medication and is on a special food diet.
Thank you for your interest in “Thorton”.
Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we will only be contacting potential adopters to further their application.
Thank you for your support.
