Meet Thorton!

Thorton came from a very abusive home where he was tied outside and beat with a pipe. Given his history, Thorton is slower to warm up to new people and would do best in a home willing to work with him and understanding his need to come to people on his own terms. This includes letting him sniff a new person and letting him walk away until he is ready to interact with them. 

Thorton is house and crate trained. He loves his foster fur sister and is very eager to learn new things. 

Thor has been through enough in a 1yr and a half and deserves to have the best life moving forward.  We are looking for a home that will continue with the training and socialization methods set in place by his amazing foster dad. He needs patience, structure and most of all a soft hand and voice.

He would do best in a home without small children or cats. Another confident dog in the home will make all the difference in Thor’s world and allow him to continue to shine.

Check out his video!  Not to worry - he doesn't howl all the time, only when his foster dad plays a video of wolves doing it.  Love the way he actually tips his head back and really gets into it!. 

If you are looking for a giant loving soul  who will give you his full devotion in exchange for continuing to help him gain his confidence Please apply below!
