This handsome guy is Thor. There has been some confusion as to whether he is the actual Norse God of Thunder and founding member of the Avengers. We have investigated this possibility and can say with some certainty that our Thor is not that Thor. Consider the following:
1). Our Thor does not have thumbs, therefore he cannot wield an enchanted hammer.
2). Our Thor claims he does not have a mischievous brother named Loki.
3). Our Thor seems to have no interest in controlling thunder and lightning. He is much more interested in chew toys and having fun outside.
4). Our Thor is just a couple of years old. Norse god Thor is over 2000 years old.
5). Our Thor looks nothing like Chris Hemsworth.

Similarities? Both Thors are very strong, handsome, and athletic. Both Thors have an affection for mankind. Both Thors have had difficult times in their lives and have found themselves having to start new lives in strange, new places. Both Thors could use a little more structure in their lives. Both Thors are worthy of starring in a blockbuster movie. If you’d like to find out more about our Thor, call the shelter at 743-8679, or fill out our application at and we’ll contact you. Meetings are scheduled with approved applicants.
