Thor is one nice looking dog. I love the picture of the torn up toy. Now do you do what I do? Dog rips toy apart... must go out and buy another one, knowing the outcome will be another torn up toy?

Hi and welcome to df! Thor does look like a love bug! Must be nice. We have another former marine here too.

WoW!!!!!Thor is so awesome .I can't see the lost 5 pics for some reason .

LCPL_USMC_RET 02-02-2012 06:17 PM

the links i added didnt work so i just but the address in. if you click one it brings you to flicker then if you click the previous and next buttons you can see more of them.

he only chews on things i tell him its ok to chew on. if you tell him no its not his he will leave it alone.

rozalia 02-02-2012 10:09 PM

He is gorgeous,thank you for all this pics.
Did you train him???

LCPL_USMC_RET 02-03-2012 02:36 AM

he was basically trained when we got him. i got him on new years eve and in that time ive taught him to jump for treats and to roll over. which is pretty good i think considering its a short time and he is 3 yrs old. im trying to teach him to speak but one of the homes he was with before we got him he was hit and i think he was trained not to howl or anything, he only does it when he is sad or excited some times if you move your hand towards him to suddenly he h=get skittish and timmed. i founf out the first family the had him this past year got him in july and we were at least the third family he had been with in 2011. its really sad because he is such a sweet heart n just wants to b loved.

Just goes to show, that sometimes all they need is a little love. It's a shame that the poor guy was rehomed 3 times in one year alone. Thank goodness he now has a forever home, with lots of love!

rozalia 02-03-2012 02:27 PM

I think is very good that you teaching him ,i am sad to hear about he is rehoming:(
I hope he will be whit you forever.
You sad you try to teaching him to speak ...that is so funny and cool .If you don't mind i like to show you Mishka video say "I love you"








I hope you like it.

LCPL_USMC_RET 02-03-2012 02:31 PM

lol i love those videos! its hard to get him to talk if he isnt excited if he is excited or sad he'll go along with you. but any other time its hard. if i leave to go to the store he starts crying and howling n my husband keeps him going, its so cute, or before i take him for a walk, when he sees the leash its just madness! he actually likes the leash! even when we are at the dog park and he is playing, if i get his attention and show him the leash he comes running! where as a lot of dogs i know run from it! lol

At least 3 times. 3 homes in 5 months. and the family that got him in july got him from the pound, so he had to have come from somewhere, cuz he's 3yrs and a pound dont keep a dog for THAT long. so i can only imagine how many homes he's been in. But you best believe he is in his last! Ive wanted a husky since i was a kid. Ive loved wolves and i have a tattoo of a wolf on my arm that actually looks a little like Thor! lol

I love the tattoo! It looks like one of our members art work. Check out the art section of the forum and look for Draco.

LCPL_USMC_RET 02-03-2012 03:59 PM

I will!

Here is a video of Thor and a few of the "tricks" he knows.

The video is great. Thor is a smart boy!! :heart:

I love huskies, my dogs 2 best friends are both Siberian Huskies, and she LOVES 'em! My sister trained my dog how to speak, and we regret it, all she does now is bark at people passing by :o

Cool tattoo, but did you know that technically you "stole" the design? I visit an art site and recognized that tattoo right away from a girl who makes money by designing others' tattoos. Unless you commissioned it from her, then my mistake :p

LCPL_USMC_RET 02-04-2012 06:43 PM

lol yea i found it on the internet. BUT in my defense the design is changed a bit the original is all black and mine has some red in it... not that that actually makes a difference but.....it helps me sleep at night. lol

LCPL_USMC_RET 02-08-2012 07:19 PM

So after about 3 days of sitting down and devoting time just to teach him to speak i finally got him talking! ive tried before but as i previously stated one of the homes he was with hit him and im lead to believe that he war punished for barking or howling. when i first tried it seemed like he knew what i wanted him to do but he would get frustrated cuz he wasnt sure if he would get in trouble. first he wold let out little whisper howls, it was cute but made me sad because in my mind it confirmed my suspicions. but after positive reinforcement that it was ok and lots of treats (lol) he finally got it down. now he will "bark" or howl when i tell him to say please!

his personality has come out A LOT since we got him, he used to be very quiet and kinda timid but as you can see he has gotten a little more .....free willed we'll call it lol!

DeeLind7 02-08-2012 08:07 PM

How cute! I can't believe I missed the first video. At least he's finally coming into his own. You should be proud of how his training is going.

techie 02-08-2012 08:19 PM

Your Marine background is showing! :D lol

I am very proud. the fact that he is showing his personality more and more makes me really happy because that, to me, means he is happy and comfortable here and that he feels safe.
