Thunder’s Special Skill

There are probably a lot of you who already know about this fella. Some time ago, on a TV show called “Spaceship Earth”, Thunder was introduced as “the dog who appeared at ARK like a bolt of lightning”. Back then, it took Ms. Oliver (ARK’s founder) plus a male staffer just to take Thunder for a walk.
But compared to the wild guy he was then, he’s incredibly sociable and people-friendly now. Of course, if he wants to, he can still show his powerful animal side.
However, he’s got much better at behaving properly on his own, and has become great at walking one-on-one!

Recently, he’s mastered certain tricks and skills, like this one: the high five. If you say “touch”, and stick out the palm of your hand, Thunder’s front leg will come up to meet it. It’s really heartwarming to see his earnest face as he gives you a high five.

This is Thunder doing his best to high five, in order to get a reward.
Roommate Jessie peers in from the side. “Whatcha doin’ there, buddy?”
A lot of dogs watch what other dogs do to get treats, and mimic them so they can get treats too. (Jessie can’t high five yet, though...)

Thunder is definitely a dog with lots of energy. The way he shows people his love, his attachment to food, the way he gets excited during his walks – everything he does is 120%! He’s that type of dog, so we hope his foster parents will also be very active and able to give him enough exercise. Thunder can’t be described using the words “little” or “quiet”, but that’s all part of his charm. I’ll soon be writing about Thunder some more.

“Hey, I can’t wait like this any more - do you think you can come pick me up soon?”
