Hey everyone! I'm Major. My foster parents have given me all sorts of nicknames to go along with that, as I'm sure you can imagine. FM calls me Mage (I don't even know how to spell that really), and FD usually calls me Major Minor. Silly humans!
I'm an "old new" kid here at Merit. See, I was here a long time ago and was adopted. Unfortunately my mom moved out of the country, and though she tried really hard, she couldn't manage to get me there, so she thought it was best if I came back to the wonderful people here at Merit. So far, I agree with her decision, and am happy that she was looking out for what was best for me! I like it here. :)
I'm house trained, crate trained, and know some obedience stuff. FM says I need to provide a list, so here it is: sit, down, sit stay, down stay, wait, shake, and roll over. I'm still working on my leash manners, and attention skills. Those are HARD. I'll do just about anything for a treat though, so I'm pretty quick to learn stuff! I live with a few other dogs, but so far have only been able to go on supervised walks with them, because I can sometimes be a little unsure about new dogs, and don't always make the best decisions. My FM is helping me work through those issues, so I'll keep you updated on how that's going. There are also two cats living her, but I DO NOT LIKE THEM. You should hear the nasty things they say to me!! FM says I need to be in a home without cats.....THANK GOODNESS. Evil little things, they are.
I think I hear FM rattling the cookie box....so I gotta go!!!! Be sure to check back for more updates!
