11/12/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: He’s a tank, a steam roller, a low rider, a big-headed meatball whose tail wags, whose face smiles, and who loves to interact with his person. Surrendered by his family as they are moving where he’s not welcome, we’re told he’s friendly and outgoing with strangers, is good and has lived with children ages 1-9, is housetrained, doesn’t guard his stuff, is crate trained for up to 4 hours, is well behaved when left home alone, knows ‘sit’, ‘stay, ‘paw’ and ‘no’. Thor showed off many of his skills, tail wagging the entire time. He posed for pictures, rocking a bow tie, takes treats gently after his ‘sit’, and can get a little mouthy when he’s having fun. Thor does pull towards other dogs when we’re out, and pulls on the leash in general, so some leash training will go a long way. Off leash in a pen, it took two tries for him to jump op on the bench next to me, as his legs are so cutely short! He gets an A for effort and succeeded, happy to sit next to me for petting and kisses. We’re told that Thor doesn’t like big dogs, so may be best as your one and only. His big, fun and affectionate personality is looking for his human soul mate for lots of activity and love. He’s young, he’s energetic, he’s handsome and he could be yours. Come meet him today.
