Meet Thor - UPDATED PROFILE!!

My name is Thor and I am a beautiful, soon to be 4-year-old male that is as sweet as they come! I came to GLWR when I was 5 months old with an inherited congenital birth defect called Myelodysplasia (spinal dysraphism), which is nothing more than an incomplete formation of the neural tube (spinal cord) from some abnormality in my genetic makeup. Some of my neural pathways are incomplete and so I can have some sensory challenges. It is a non-degenerative albeit permanent condition that will not worsen and I am not in any pain. I do not take any medication but I do benefit from occasional chiropractic adjustments and have also has some acupuncture therapy that has been helpful in the past. I have progressed to full autonomy and far exceeded everyone's expectations for my mobility. I do tend to tire prematurely when I play but I do LOVE to play with balls, sticks and my canine friends in a game of chase in the yard. Staying in a routine helps me with my potty breaks and with a standard household routine I live a pretty normal life! an. Outside of that I am a well socialized and happy and a typical young weim.

I will always be a special needs dog and will require regular, long-term homeopathic vet care. My adopters must commit to financially supporting my medical needs (chiropractic mostly), in addition to meeting my daily needs, which include specific potty duties and sometimes washing. If you can help keep a routine my maintenance is pretty normal! In return, I promise to love and cherish you with all of my great big Weimy heart! I need baby gates in front of all the steps except for the ones to get outside because, in general, stairs are difficult for me as they require coordination that sometimes is difficult when going up and down. My foster family has worked very hard with me, investing time, patience, and love to build my strength. The results have been nothing short of a miracle.

Some more things about me...I like to go for walks and can go up to three miles. I also love walks on the beach or in the woods. When I get tired, I begin to hop. I am crate trained and that is where I am when my foster parents go to work, but I am let out once during the day. I would love to find someone who works from home, is semi- or retired, or has a capable, responsible dog walker because three to four hours is my maximum crate time. My favorite thing in the world is a nasty looking soccer ball. I love playing chase with that ball. After potty and exercise time I like to hang out with my foster family and watch TV, just like any other Weim! I have not been able to get on the couch, but I love when someone comes to sit on the floor with me. I have a never ending appreciation for the care and attention that I get that helps me live a great dog life.

I get along great with kids and other dogs. I would not do well in a home with stairs or hardwood, laminate or tiled floors. I really need a home with as much carpet as possible. If you think your heart and home has room for a sweet, lovable boy, please contact GLWR. I would love to find my forever family!

Great Lakes Weimaraner Rescue is an all volunteer, nonprofit group whose primary mission is to help with the rescue and placement of Weims in the Great Lakes region; including Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Ontario.

GLWR is headquartered in Michigan with a network of foster homes in our State & Country Chapters. We do not have a shelter that is open for the public to visit. All applicants must be approved before meeting any dog in our foster network.

GLWR does not ship dogs, but if you are willing to travel to meet one of our dogs fostered in one of our Satellite Chapters, then you are welcome to apply for adoption. All dogs not listed as being fostered in a specific State or Country Chapter, are fostered in Michigan.

Please visit our website at www.GreatLakesWeimRescue.com to see a complete list of weims that are waiting for their forever homes! The availability status of any Weimaraner listed on our site is subject to change without notice. Please contact our Adoption and Applications Coordinator for current availability status.
