Thor's Info...

Thor's Story...
Thor is a large Boxer / Great Pyrenees mix, weighing in just short of one hundred pounds. Due to his large size and rapidly growing body, Thor developed some lameness in his limbs and had orthopedic surgery to repair his hip. He is just over a year old and volunteers at the shelter call him a gentle giant. He loves laying in the grass and receiving belly rubs. This big guy plays well in doggy play groups and would be fine with people of all ages. He's large but would love to crash on the couch and hang with his forever family. Thor is a big boy with a big heart.

Thor's adoption fee is $175; he is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccines. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at 618-282-7387 to arrange a meeting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Thor, a Columbia Great Pyrenees/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Pyrenees/Boxer for sale in Columbia, or seeking a Great Pyrenees/Boxer dog from a breeder in Columbia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Columbia already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Columbia breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Pyrenees/Boxer breeders who help with Great Pyrenees/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Columbia paves the way for another one to be saved.
