ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- ABC Action News works with local shelters to find homes for dogs and cats through our weekly Pet of the Week feature.

This week we featured Thor, a 9-month-old Great Dane from Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg. The good news is Thor quickly found his "Asgard" to call home.

According to the American Kennel Club, Great Danes are friendly, patient dogs who enjoy a walk two or three times a day.

Shelter workers report Thor is no God of Thunder. Instead, he is a goofy and playful pup who loves people and a good game.

Due to his size, Thor would be more suitable for families with older children or the perfect pal for someone with an active lifestyle.

Thor is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
