Thorne was rescued from a hoarding situation in Tennessee along with other dogs. He is very shy and needs to work on socialization. He is a very sweet, Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle mix, who is approximately 9 years old. He is housebroken, crate trained, loves other dogs, cats unknown, and enjoys car rides. He's super treat oriented. Thorne is a great guy who just needs a patient family that understands his past.

"It snowed again this winter, which is okay with Thorne because he really likes to play in it! This past Tuesday, when it snowed, Thorne really enjoyed himself as he ran around in circles playing and kicking loose snow. We’re happy for him because while doing so he puts aside his fear issues and just has fun! Speaking of his anxiety, Thorne has made big improvements overcoming his timid demeanor. There is still room for improvement, but now he will slowly go up to people, swipe their hand, and roll over. He’s still reserved and cautious but this is progress!
Thorne may have had a less than favorable life up until he was rescued, but he is improving and deserves a second chance in a forever home."

It snowed! Thorne doesn’t seem to mind the snow and actually likes to play and dig in it. This surely is a sight to see and would put a smile on any dog lover’s face as “Mr. T” scratches the snow to see what’s underneath it. The only thing we noticed that he doesn’t like about this wintery weather (and who could blame him) is when the wind blows. Other than the change in weather, nothing much has changed with Thorne, except he is more willing to explore and comes out of his shell a little more and more as the days continue. All dogs deserve their second chance!

“Thorne finally met someone! He met one handler and one inmate out of gen pop (general population). He was reserved while doing so, but this is progress made. Hopefully within the next few weeks we can get to the point where he’ll let someone pet him.”

“Thorne has shown his feisty side over the past couple of days! A few of his co-handlers said that he will growl at them when they attempt to take him out for a walk. This is an issue we will be working on this week. However, he has never given me any issues, but I’m with him almost all day long. With this being said, it’s clear he needs some training, but he is still a good dog. It’s in my best opinion that he’s a diamond in the ruff.”

“This week Thorne (AKA Mr. T) has met Angel and Reggie without incident. They have yet to get to the level of play, but we’re sure they will here in a few short days. Otherwise, Mr. T is doing pretty well here. He is adjusting to his new environment slowly, but he is getting more comfortable as the days go on!”

“Thorne recently joined our program here at Camp Hill after his relative, Tango, got his opportunity to go into a foster home. So far Thorne has been adjusting to his new environment pretty well. He seems to be a little reserved, but he’s only been here for a few days. I’m sure he’ll come around.”
