Thor's Story...

Thor is a young pup of barely 10 months (possibly a Black Lab x Rottweiler cross). With a booming bark that earned his name as “The God of Thunder,” he can easily intimidate strangers – yet he is tail-wagging social with people as well as other dogs.

Eager to please and with an unbelievable food drive (he will work for kibbles just as willingly as for hot dogs), he is a very fast learner, clear-headed, calm and focused for his age. He loves search games, and can can easily find, point to, and retrieve various toys.

Thor has a good foundation in the Michael Ellis marker system, knows "Sit," "Down," "Stay," "Place," "Sit-in-Motion," "Down-in-Motion," "Watch Me," "Out" (releasing a toy), "Leave It," and has good off-leash recall around distractions. Relaxed and confident in new environments (often neutral to passing people, cars, bicyclists, etc.), he behaves well on a leash on a regular flat collar, and will “Sit,” “Down,” and “Stay” during our regular walks and/or around other dogs.

He would do best in a home experienced with working breeds, preferably without young children. While he enjoys their company very much, experience tells us that while he continues his road towards adulthood, Thor will need a strictly structured home (“nothing in life is free”), one in which he is not viewed as a play-mate but as a working dog and serious family companion.

Based on his stable temperament and drives, he would likely be a good candidate for passive alert detection (SAR) or, as he matures, therapy work.

Thor is crate trained as well as house-trained and goes outside "on cue," and up to date with vaccines, and neutered. His adoption fee is $350, and includes two free training sessions with High Drive Pups.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cleveland 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 Cleveland 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 Labrador Retriever/Rottweiler breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Rottweiler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cleveland paves the way for another one to be saved.
