This is Major. He is an absolutely beautiful Flat Coat Retriever, possibly a mix. He is 3 1/2 years old and is 81.5 pounds worth of sweetness and love!! This boy is one of the most loving dogs I have ever met, and obedient, too. He was checked out at the Vet and given a clean bill of health.
Major has been with us for just about a week. He has become very attached, which I think makes sense as he came from a loving home and family, they were unable to care for him in the manner he deserves. His world was turned a bit upside down, so he is getting used to us and wants to know where we are, he is a Velcro dog. I am not complaining, because he is so incredibly lovable! This huge change to his world has created some anxiety when we want to leave him and our resident at home alone, but I believe with consistency, training and time, that problem will improve.
For now, however, he needs to be in a home where his people don't need to leave him for extended periods of time. I think his new family would need to continuously show him that he is loved and that they are always going to come back.
Major has "free roam" at our house. He does not do well in a crate and may hurt himself trying to get out. He is a tall boy and counters are right at his nose level, so he can hardly help checking them out sometimes! We leave our counter free of enticements and he does just fine.
Major loves to gallop around the dog play area where we live like an adorable pony, he loves to play fetch or just run around. He gets along very well with my resident dog, Stanley, as well as other dogs that we meet. He did not live with a dog in his previous home, so he gets very excited when he sees one.
Major walks really well on-leash. I walk with a cane and I have no problem walking Major and my resident dog at the same time.
This is one magnificent dog! If you would like to cuddle with this big lap dog and get some awesome Major kisses, just let your Placement advisor know. I guarantee you that you will fall in love with this big boy and he will love you back!
