About Major

Hi, my name is Major. I am an affectionate, calm 6 year old male and I would love to be your best friend. Everybody at my foster home is my best friend. I follow them around the house. Sometimes I like to lay at your feet when you are working at your desk or sitting on the couch.

I’m a big dog at about 105 pounds, but don’t let that worry you. I am very well-behaved. I’m a 10 on the friendly scale. If you sit down beside me, I just might put my head in your lap and nudge you for an ear or tummy rub and then drift off to sleep.

I like to take walks outside. I am very good walking on a lead, I rarely tug on the lead when I see other dogs. I also like to run in the yard and sometimes play fetch with my favorite blue ball. I know basic obedience commands like “sit”and “down.” I did meet a few small mixed breed female dogs when I was outside on my walks and I was friendly toward them.

I’m very calm in the house, but if someone knocks on the door, or I hear the doorbell I will probably bark to let you know. I have been very friendly with meeting new people while I’m staying at my foster home. I did live with small children at my previous home and I was fine around small children.

I’m house-trained and well-behaved. In the time I’ve been at my foster home I have not tried to climb on any furniture or beds and I have not chewed on anything other than my toys. I also sleep through the night in my dog bed.

Don’t let my size worry you, I just might be the most affectionate, friendly male Doberman you’ll meet.
