Did someone say playtime??!!! Thunder may look like a demure little lady in her pink coat but don’t be fooled, she absolutely loves to get in on the action and whether it’s a game of chase (ball, person or dog – all are welcome!), a trip to the park or simply ‘begging’ for treats, she puts her heart and soul into every single moment. She’s so excited to be free in the yard and leaps about like a deer, long limbs graceful yet gawky and those ‘wind-blown’ ears the perfect crown for such a mischievous young princess. When other dogs approach Thunder is right there at the fence with her tail wagging in friendly greeting and though she arrived at the Care Center as a stray, it’s clear she’s known what it means to be a pet and can already sit on command for treats and walk very nicely on leash too. Thunder asks for love and attention at every turn but she can also be quite timid sometimes, flinching from a loud noise or sudden movement and hesitating at first when we come to a busy street. Of course it’s not long before she literally bounces back to her fun-loving self – no semi-truck or coat-wielding volunteer is going to keep this spirited pup down! If you’re looking for a lively, lovable and light-hearted girl to add to your pack then Thunder is the one for you, ask to meet her today and let the good times roll!

Ask anyone on the behavior team who their favorite dog is and they’ll tell you Thunder! The preferred pup for playgroups, she is welcoming and tolerant of all dogs, and when one is shy or new to the group guess who’s the welcoming committee? You’re right – it’s Thunder. She’s sleek and gorgeous in her brindle coat, her pop up ears always pointed to the sky, and her tail always in a happy wag. Sitting for a treat, you need to be quick or she’s up and about again. Her positive energy, friendly and sparkling personality make her a favorite for volunteers to spend time with, and her kennel card reflects the accolades she’s earned. She’s slender, compact and adorable, and the only thing she’s missing is a forever home. She’d love canine siblings, of course, and we’re all wishing hard that she finds her new home fast. She’s a gem and waiting to prove it to you.

Meet Thunder: a good-natured snuggler, loving and loyal cuddler, a pretty supermodel of a pooch with a slender body and ears so tall, they probably catch distant radio signals. She’s super well behaved, appears to be good with other dogs, and impressed our intake staff, who noted that she had absolutely no aggression. Her tail never stops wagging, and all she wants is to find the forever pet parents she knows will love and cherish her forever. Introduce yourself to our girl Thunder today!
