Thunder says thanks to sponsor Rob Holloway and promises to be a good foster dog!

Thunder was picked up by animal services after a major thunderstorm. No chip, no tags and nobody claimed him.  When you meet Thunder you'll react like we did - "Why?"

He warms up to you quickly and is very affectionate.  In the car he likes nothing more than to put his snout on your shoulder! He fell asleep with his head on his foster mom's daughters lap.

We think he is a 10 month old puppy who is going to be a large boy in a years time! However, he is very gentle but does need training as even sit and down are not yet in place. He obviously has no recall, but will follow you if you make silly noises and act all excited whilst running away from him.

He is playful and friendly with other dogs with no leash reactivity.  We have not yet tested him with cats. We'll be walking him everywhere, getting him used to his new environment, visiting places and chilling out after his shelter experience.  Everyone he meets ca't stop gushing over his looks!

He likes to play ball, but has not yet learned that letting go makes for a better game.  

He weighs about 65 pounds and is a very attractive young boy.

His foster mom reports that he is very good in his crate and learning new things all the time. She took him for a bath last night and he was very well behaved. For example, he had not previously seen a busy road, or even stairs in a house.

We will post more as we get to know him. He is being fostered in San Rafael.
