Our Major is out to break all preconceived notions you may have about pit bulls or dogs named "Major". He is super-affectionate with people and seems to be good with other dogs, too.

Major enjoys a good walk... he sometimes pulls a bit at the start of his walks, but he usually gets settled in and is a good walker, solo or with some of the other dogs here. He seems to be housetrained (we make it a point to get him out first thing in the morning, to keep it that way) and has very good manners. He learned "sit" at some point in his travels, and he generally comes when called, but that might be the extent of his training so far.

We all love his exuberance and his love of life. He loves going out for walks. He loves to get petted. He loves getting treats. In fact, the only thing we've found that he doesn't love is going back to his run after a trip outside. He's not stubborn about it, but he's not all that enthusiastic, either. This is a dog that just loves to be with his people.

One medical note: when Major was surrendered to us, he had several lumps under his skin, which you might be able to see in the video and photos. Our veterinarians found these to be benign cysts, and treated them. They didn't seem to cause him much trouble, but lumps of any kind should be monitored by a veterinarian. We'll be happy to review his medical report with you in detail if you think Major might be the dog for you.

"I'm just going to tell you, Major is the SWEETEST dog! Very affectionate and friendly! Love him!" one of our volunteers writes. "He will steal your heart!!!!" writes another.
