Thunder is a handsome 4 year old German Shepherd/Malamute/Wolf mix. He can be aloof and standoffish with strangers, but very affection when he warms up, to the point of being a big goofball! Thunder is a quick learner and knows several commands including sit, down, and spin. He is a very high energy dog and would do best with an experienced, confident owner willing to participate in activities like walking, jogging, and hiking.
Thunder can be food aggressive, especially over raw food, but is being professionally trained to correct this. He was not socialized to other dogs until he arrived at our rescue, and we have noticed he is awkward around other dogs and has problems communicating, but has not shown any real aggression. He requires a fenced in outdoor enclosure that is at least six feet in height. He was raised inside, but would not settle down or relax in the house.
Please no small pets such as small dogs or cats. Thunder is part wolf and will only be adopted to areas where wolfdogs are legal to own.
Do not inquire about or apply for Thunder if you live in any of the following States: Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine. Wolfdogs are illegal to possess in these States.
