rhodesian ridgeback


Thunder is a gentle giant with a big heart. He is a great walking companion and just likes to walk beside whoever is walking him. Thunder is quite happy to nap most of the day but loves a good cuddle and leans into you when giving him pats.

Thunder is looking for a home preferably with no small children just because of his size and he would love another dog who can keep him company through the day.

Thunder is very easy to fall in love with. He is cat and dog friendly and welcoming to people who he isn’t familiar with.

Thunder is fairly quite, you rarely hear him bark unless he gets extremely excited and playful. He isn’t a quick eater, liking to take his time while he eats. Overall though Thunder is a perfect dog for someone who is looking for a big, laid back companion who loves cuddles.
