Thunder is a 3 yr old male shepherd mix. We’re not quite sure which breed may have lent to those unique round tipped ears but we know underneath those ears, rests the mind of a remarkably gentle dog. Thunder has interacted well with all other shelter dogs he’s met. He’s so passive in the company of cats that their inhibitions are quickly put to rest, shortly after they meet. He loves people and has
a list of quirky little uncertainties that make him endearing. For instance, he was afraid to cross a hose that was newly placed across a familiar trail and continued to hop over it, until he passed the area enough that he knew it would not harm him.
Thunder has had trouble gaining weight because he appears to be very sensitive to changes in his food. When he first arrived, Thunder seemed to be always hungry and sometimes showed aggression over his food. We’ve finally got him on a brand that agrees with him and at last, he leaves food in his dish. His food aggression issue appears to be subsiding as a result but to be cautious, we are looking for a home with no children under 10 years of age.
Thunder will need to be neutered.
