Dog(s) Of The Week
Thor and Shep are TWO PUPS looking for a special forever home.
Thor and Shep, both 4-year-old Australian Cattle dogs, are the best of friends and one couldn’t face life without the other. So when their owner, who could no longer afford to care for two dogs, brought them to the Arizona Humane Society it was with good reason that they were put on the “Buddy System” and they must go home together.
Shep is the outgoing “ring-leader” who leads the way towards each new adventure, reassuring Thor (who can be skeptical at times) that life is non-stop fun. With synchronized tail wags and ear to ear doggie smiles, both Thor and Shep enjoy walks each morning and playing games of tug in the back yard. Both doggies LOVE water and will pounce on any opportunity to play in sprinklers or dive into the pool and are fetching fanatics as well.
A patient coach will need to invest plenty of time into helping these two dogs adjust to their new home and lifestyle as their previous owner kept them mostly outdoors. They haven’t had much training but with a little encouragement and a yummy treat for a reward, these two clever canines will catch on quickly to their new routine and the house rules.
A dog and child introduction is required to ensure a good match.
They are available NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s Sunnyslope Facility located at 9226 North 13th Avenue in Phoenix. Their adoption fee together is just $110. This fee includes their neuter surgery, vaccines, two colorful leashes and collars with AHS I.D. tags and a follow-up veterinary exam for both.
