A Word from Thunder
What’s up, guys?! My name is Thunder. I’ve been at TIRR Rescue since 2018.
When I was brought to the shelter, I was very scared and didn’t want anyone to touch me. A lot of people thought I was aggressive, but one nice person recognized my fear and brought me to TIRR so I could work on my fear and learn to be loved and have fun again.
I’m much better now, though I’m still wary around strange people - don’t touch me until I touch you. I love to have fun and can be a bit of a dork sometimes. I’m very much a ladies’ man and would love to go to a home with an active person. However, I’m a typical Ridgeback and will need an owner that is very familiar with my breed and can be a strong leader.
