Am/Can Ch.

Skansen's Thor Von Harvard

(RN, RI, RA),RE, TT, CGN, Therapy dog.


Thor (Harvard x Felicity) was born in the USA on Jan 30 2011, and was our first giant.

He received his Canadian Championship in January 2013, and then went on to be shown from May – August/2013 in the USA by Michael Rutkas (Histyle's giant schnauzers) for his AKC Championship, and managed majors towards his grand championship.

Once Thor returned home, we decided conformation isn't the right place for him so through dedicated teamwork and determined training Thor received multiple Rally titles along with his Canine Good Neighbor in 2015

Unfortunately mid way through 2015 became a particularly difficult time for his family, but with his endearing strength and loveable determination Thor helped his family through, this led to us finding Thor's true calling and in 2016 Thor teamed up with a therapy program close to home which aims to help others by visiting people of all ages to brighten their lives. Thor is grateful we found his calling early in life, enabling him to be a dignified breed ambassador.

Thor has grown in his love of helping those around and led the pack at Asgardian Giants in becoming Canine blood donors. This gave him a rejuvenation in life and added more fun sports to this aging gentleman, where at the ripe old age of 10 he's taken on Sprinters (like the American Fast cat) and enjoys stretching his old bones in fast sports and long hikes, keeping up with the younger dogs.
