Despite his walrus size, Thor is a gentle boy who is so grateful to anyone who'll be nice to him, and he always greets his favorite people with a big happy smile. He's super-affectionate and likes to be near his person, resting his head on their knee and asking for some of those sweet scritches and giving kisses in trade.

As long as he's with his favorite human, Thor is pretty much up for anything. This goofy lovebug will put up with all of your antics as long as you just give him what he really wants: cuddles, please! While he's happy to be a couch potato (or floor potato - your choice - Thor won't get up on the furniture unless you invite him), he also enjoys getting out on long walks with his person.

Thor comes fully house and crate-trained, and he will bring all his toys in his crate so he can hang out with them. Thor absolutely adores his toys and even puts them away when he's done! He has a favorite toy snake that he carries around the house with him, and he's very gentle and dainty with it.

Thor previously lived in a foster home with another dog, and they had the best times romping around, playing and rough-housing, up until the very second they'd fall asleep nose to nose on the ground. He also goes to playgroup with his canine friends at the shelter and could go home with a well-matched doggie sibling.

If you like your dogs big, sweet, gentle and goofy, and you can provide plenty of toys and love, Thor will be thrilled to meet you!
