Hi future family! My name is Thora, and I am a friendly bundle of fun who is eager to start a life of adventure by your side! I have an outgoing personality and make fast friends with people of all ages. I am kid friendly, but I'm still in my mouthy puppy stage so my young buddies should be able to handle my high energy and excitement. I am also very dog friendly and love to play with my canine pals, but would do best in a home without kitty cats. My favorite activities include being outside: I would prefer a home with a fenced yard because I love to run around and play with my people and dog friends. I also enjoy long walkies around the neighborhood and already have great leash manners. Since I am so young, I'm still learning many important life skills; potty and crate training are works in progress so I would appreciate help and patience while I master them. My ideal family will have herding dog experience and will be committed to signing me up for training classes so I can work my brain; I am very smart and eager to learn how to use my energy for good. I am the total package of endless fun and infinite love; if you are looking for an active lifetime of adventure, I hope you fill out an adoption application!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
