Meet Thor, Shelter Pet of the Week

Seeking a new family pet? This sweet pup might be the right one for you and your family.

Thor is a gorgeous adult male pup with a sweet disposition and a short, black-and-white coat of fur at the Town of Islip Animal Shelter who's just waiting to find his forever home filled with much love and care to spare.

According to shelter staff, he's very friendly and just a really happy dog.  Plus, he's very playful and a total sweetie.

Thor - an American Staffordshire Terrier mix - has a big scar around his neck, most likely from a chain or rope kept on him for a long time, said staff.

However, they noted, it doesn't bother him at all, and certainly doesn't prevent him from being a wonderful adoptable dog.

"Thor will make a nice addition your home. Please come to the shelter and meet Thor," staff said.

For more information about Thor, call the TOI Animal Shelter at 631-224-5660, e-mail the shelter or visit the website. Thor's tag number is 3029.

Be sure to click the images to see Thor up close. Or simply go to meet him. The shelter’s open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Looks like one of those mean vicious incontrolable pitbull attack dogs. I compare it to a pet alligator or croc. ;D
