Thor (Cheltenham Animal Shelter, Gloucestershire)


Please help Thor by sharing this page!

Beautiful Thor is a 9 year old Malamute looking for a restful retirement with the help of Cheltenham Animal Shelter in Gloucestershire. He needs home comforts, a good sized garden but he doesn’t need long walks. He wants to be the only pet in an adult only home.

A quiet, preferably rural home would suit him best. As would owners with experience of similar dogs. A paddling pool wouldn’t go amiss either!

Thor is a loving, lovable goof ball when he’s with people he knows and trusts. He bonds very strongly with his favourite humans. He’s nervous of strangers and therefore needs a home without many visitors.

At the moment Thor takes a pain medication called gabapentin three times a day for hip dysplasia but it’s thought this could be reduced once he’s out of kennels and relaxing in his new, comfortable home. He’s said to be thriving on this treatment and can still have short walks.

He just won’t be going hiking any time soon. Garden time, play time and lounging around near his people makes for a happy Thor!
