found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
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.
