  •     Thorin
    Thorin is a 3-year-old shepherd mix whose top priority is playing and "working." He loves tennis balls and learning new things, and he needs a family who will give him daily mental & physical exercise. Affection & getting petted are not important to him, so he needs a family who can understand his needs, with no children under 18. His adoption fee of $100 includes him being neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
