Gorgeous Thor will bowl you over (sometimes literally!) with his enthusiasm for life and his wholehearted adoration. Seriously - this dog loves humans like nothing else in the world. A big goofball who has no idea QUITE how big he is, he will often angle for a comfy place on your lap - all 35 kilos of him! He just wants to be close to you.
Like lots of smart, sensitive puppers, this lovely boy has a very empathetic nature - if he senses that someone is upset, he will put his paw on them to tell them everything will be OK, and give them a big, warm hug.
Thor really enjoys the company of friendly pooches, and would be delighted to have a ready-made doggy pal in his new home! He absolutely loves playing in water, chasing the stream from the hose, and heading out on long, leisurely walks or trips to the dog park where he can sniff away to his heart's content. He walks very well on his lead.

MY IDEAL HOME: I'm keen to find a family who will give me stacks of love, and plenty of activity (including a daily walk) to keep me stimulated, healthy and happy.
I respond well to basic commands, including sit, stay, wait, and shake.... though sometimes I need a treat to focus my attention! I'm a bright boy, so will benefit from ongoing training.
MY ENERGY LEVEL: I love to lie around in the sun (or on the sofa) during the day and relax with my buddies - human or canine. When my foster parents come home, I'm so excited! I definitely need lots of hands-on attention - and some backyard space to play in, ideally, for when my odd kick of energy comes on.
MY SUITABILITY TO CHILDREN: I would be thrilled to live with dog-savvy children over the age of 10!
MY SUITABILITY TO CATS AND DOGS: I loooove having a doggy sidekick. In fact, I've never been on my own before. I like the little guys best - I love being taller than them. :)
I've never met a cat, so how that relationship might work is anyone's guess. I'm willing to give it a shot!

We ask all people looking to adopt to fill in our adoption enquiry form at http://www.maggiesrescue.org/adoption-enquiry-dogs. Please use this link rather than the 'Enquire' button on the pet's PetRescue profile to streamline your enquiry.
We will then organise a time for you to meet with the foster carer and the pet you are interested in adopting.
Maggie's wants this to be a good experience for you, and we will occasionally suggest a different cat or dog as your situation may not meet the needs of the individual pet.
All our pets leave for their new homes on a two week trial. At the end of this period we will transfer the microchip to your details and the adoption is complete.
Your pet is a Maggie's Pet for Life, please consider this before adopting.
