Major has been adopted! From his foster pops: This weekend, we had Alicia and Wimpy come in from Georgetown to see about adopting Major. They brought along their other dog, Molly, and everything went great and they seemed like great people that love dogs. We are so happy to say that Major has finally found a home and last night, they said that he was able to enjoy the cool weather down south on the patio.
Major is a four year old boy who was surrendered to a local shelter. We picked him up today and took him to our vet for a checkup. His ears are very dirty and he is very thin. We are hoping that the haeartorm test shows that he is negative. Major is very sweet and did not react to any of the dogs in the shelter. Stay tuned and see how we nurse this great guy back to health.
3/13/17 Update: We brought Major into our family last Tuesday. For the first week, he couldn’t be very active because he just had been neutered and we had to wait until Saturday for any fun activities or giving him a bath! Major is a very fun and loving dog. He wants nothing more than for someone to rub his belly and to cuddle on the floor in your lap. He does very well in his crate and walks right in whenever you ask him to. He might whimper for 5-10 minutes, but once he settles in, he lays down and snores his way to sleep.
We finally were able to let him play a little more on Saturday and boy, does this guy like to run around. He likes chasing after balls, but I’m not sure he knows how to play fetch very well because he runs for it, but then never wants to pick it up and bring it back. We’re still evaluating him around other dogs and we’re working on some food aggression. More updates to come!
3/26/17 Update: So, this is Major checking in… more like “majorly handsome!” If you like cuddles, affection, and giving belly rubs, I’m the dog for you. I love nothing more than being by my foster parent’s side. I’m house-trained, crate trained, great on a leash, and I get along with kids. I love my food and the people that watch me and I tend to like female dogs more than males. Apply to adopt – you won’t regret it!
