My story

My story

“How come there is such an adorable puppy in our office? and sleeping like he owns this place?” the rescuer exclaimed when she walked into the office and saw Thor slumbering in a belly-up. After months of searching for the owner, it was of no avail. Without a permanent home, what awaited Thor after being neutered was the road of coldness and loneliness. The rescuer couldn’t bear such a notion and decided to contact PACK for further assistance. Thor triumphantly passed the preliminary assessment and, in this July, officially made into PACK Academy. As a puppy, Thor in no question needs far more commitment and quality time, but Thor will certainly not take them for granted. So, if you’re truly fond of Thor, get yourself fully ready!

Thor

Personality

Thor is young, outgoing, and confident, allowing him to go for and eventually overcome different challenges. Thor enjoys get petted and rubbed so much that he even jumps up on people out of impulse. Considering that Thor will grow bigger in size, PACK staff has been training Thor not to do this potentially injurious behavior, so people, especially kids and the elderly, don’t have to worry about being knocked down when playing with Thor. Fortunately, Thor is good at catching commands and guidance. You can tell that by the thriving passion beamed out from his eyes! In short, Thor is a quick learner, who is brilliant and responsive.

My Behavior

My Behavior

Since Thor is a puppy, he has relatively more meals a day and thus, goes potty more. Yet, Thor still can’t fully identify the proper spots for pee and poop, so he does his business wherever he likes and causes a mess. His playful and outgoing nature sometimes manifest itself as provocative behavior toward other dogs due to jealousy. It’s important to stop whenever Thor does that. Moreover, Thor shows excessive excitement by jumping and barking when he is asked to wait for his turn to go out and play. Nevertheless, Thor has made gradual and noticeable improvements regarding all aspects.
