  • How did you find him? He was a rescue. He was found abandoned outside in the winter with 2 other dogs. We have worked really hard together on training and trust. He is beyond smart! I’m so glad I get to be his mom and was able to make my home his forever home. He’s quiet at daycare but when he’s home, he’s very talkative! He will let you know exactly what he wants and likes to talk some smack on occasion too just to keep me on my toes. He looks intimidating but is the sweetest boy!

Thor Dog of the Month


Dog Day Getaway’s Dog of the Month photography is brought to you by Kasey and Tyler Rajotte of Studio Twelve:52/Twelve:52 Pets. They have 5 rescue pups of their own – (all fittingly named after Marvel comic book characters) – who also love coming to DDG. So, chances are your furkid(s) and theirs have played together! This is their 11th year documenting wagging tails, nose boops, and slobbery puppy kisses – and when they aren’t doing that they are photographing weddings and families.
