Meet Thorton,

He prefers to be call Thor, as he is majestic and kind.  

When Thor arrived at MARS he came from a very abusive home, was tied outside and beat with a pipe.  SO, as you can expect, he is slower to warm up with new people and needs a minute to make sure you are worthy of him.  His foster dad has done a great job socializing him and teaching him how to meet people and determine if he wants to engage or not with them. 

He is crate trained, house trained, loves his foster fur sister and loves to show you just how eager he is to learn. He is learning to trust, and that means letting him come to people on his terms, not theirs.  So when you meet Thor, he will sniff you and walk away, and that is ok.  Give him a few minutes and a few treats and he is yours….

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.

Do you have what it takes to be Thor’s forever??  Look at that majestic face and those deep eyes…..You cannot help but fall in love…..

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!
