Thor is progressing, but it's a slow work in progress. He's not marking as much, and he's very slowly learning to stand down when he's overwhelmed by the urge to protect. He's definitely not the dog for your average family, but in a home with no or few other animals (no alphas) he could be someone's best buddy forever. He does have a very sweet and cuddly side, and we're continuing to work to let that shine through. If you've ever wanted to rescue an animal purely for the sake of the animal, and are willing to work to save this boy, then he would love you for it for the rest of his days.
Thor's come a long way since being pulled off the streets of San Antonio. He's had a heart workup to make sure he's OK for anesthesia (neuter), and he's put on a little bit of weight so he's not just skin and bones.
This boy's had a rough life, and he still has some aggression issues with my pig, but he's learned to accept and interact with other dogs and people. He still requires careful observation, but he really has come so far!
We're still working on marking, although he's improving. Whomever adopts him needs to understand he requires some patience and understanding. If you can offer him those, then you'll have a dog who loves and adores you!
