Arlington Pet of the Week: Thor

Meet Thor, an 8-year-old boxer/terrier mix who’s blind.

Thor insisted his dad submit him for Pet of the Week, so here’s a little more about Thor:

Thor is an 8-year-old terrier/boxer mix who loves doggie ice cream and puppuccinos. He was rescued on March 9, 2019, a day after his birthday, by a mostly decent guy. He is totally blind, but that doesn’t stop him from enjoying life in the beautiful city of Arlington. He has figured out that the meaning of life is to eat, sleep and walk around once in a while.

Every year, his New Year’s resolution is to eat more ice cream and sleep more on his comfortable bed. He has got a single dad who is handsome — but obviously not as much as him. He doesn’t know many games but likes to play hide-in-plain-sight-and-seek. He is a master of finding his dad based on smell and sound.

He also enjoys catching squirrels and birds in the backyard. Although he hasn’t been remotely successful in catching them, he believes in never giving up. Thor would appreciate it and even impart life wisdom upon every one who follows him on IG @Thor.Blinddoggy.

Here’s some free advice from him: “If you’re feeling sad in life then buy a doggie ice cream for him, and you’ll feel better.”
