Thor – A Handsome, Strong, and Loyal German Shepherd
Can a name ‘fit’ a dog? We think so in Thor’s case. He is a handsomely rugged pure bred adult German Shepherd dog with a strong and loyal personality.
Thor enjoys the outdoors, especially going on hikes where he can explore and get exercise. Thor walks well on a leash, knows basic commands is a quick learner. Thor is very friendly and loyal to the volunteers at Sedona Shepherd. While in our care and at our facility, Thor is comfortable greeting new people, and generally will ignore well mannered large dogs. We keep Thor well socialized and he is comfortable meeting new adults and older children.
Once Thor settles into a new home, he can become very loyal to his owners. When we say loyal, we do mean that if he is uncomfortable with new people in a home, he will let his presence be known. With proper introduction Thor will accept new people. Thor can walk nicely on a leash, but a strong handler is needed if he becomes reactive to dogs. Generally, if another dog ignores Thor, he will do the same.
Thor will flourish in a home with no children, no other animals and an experienced German Shepherd owner. He is trustworthy in a house, smart, well trained and is looking to bond with his new best friend. We estimate Thor to be about 6 years old. Thor will be adopted out on a bite contract, where any potential adopter will understand that Thor does have a bite history.
Thor currently has allergies and an infection that is causing discomfort in his cheek. We have him on medication for the infection and he is fine with his new food regiment which is a limited ingredient Salmon and Sweet Potato dog food. If you are interested in finding out more about Thor, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out an adoption application.
