Pet of the Week: Thor

By thunder, Thor is our Pet of the Week!

This young Australian Shepherd mix was brought in by his previous owner because they could not keep him. They described Thor as playful, timid, and protective. Thor is definitely a handsome boy with an overbite that makes him cute and unique! He is also smart and knows how to sit, stay, come, down, and shake.

Since Thor is an independent boy who likes to do his own thing, he’s one of our “Rambunctious Red” pets – full of energy and loves to play. He does best when he gets lots of exercise and something to keep his mind busy! He also tends to be calmer when the people around him stay calm.

Thor may not get along with other dogs and may do best as the only dog in his new home, or need to meet any current dogs before being adopted. He has lived in a home with cats, but his previous family said he is very excited and loud around other animals. Thor also lived with an older child, but should be around dog-savvy children only as he can be a bit nervous with handling. Since he is still working on his manners, we think Thor would do best with a family who is willing to work with him and help him become the best dog he can be!

Thor is neutered, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption fee includes a certificate for a free veterinary exam and the option of 30 days of free pet insurance through Trupanion.

You can find out more about Thor on our website at kingcounty.gov/AdoptAPet, or visit him in person at the Pet Adoption Center in Kent.
