(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Spayed or Neutered,

Major Tom here! I came to PPFT with my three siblings Stardust, Ziggie, and Mars after we found ourselves in the shelter!
I know that I am still very young and have some growing to do, but so far it seems like I am going to be a pretty lazy dude. I will play and romp around for like 5 minutes then am ready for a nice long nap! You can get me to chase after toys, but getting me to bring them back to you is a different story! If you really want to get my attention, get me some of those stuffed or plush animals. I LOVE those! And I go crazy for squeaky toys so those are also a must in my new home. The hard chew toys and rope toys are just so...dull. I really haven't shown much interest in those so far.
One of my other interests is playing with the other dogs, but I am not a huge player. While I think it would be awesome to have another doggie companion in my new home, I also believe that I would do well as an only dog if my new family were home a lot. I cannot say that I have met a cat yet. I would probably be curious at first, but as long as they aren't always doing zoomies all over the place and jumping on everything I would probably lose interest. I am being fostered around kids and I often wonder where all their energy comes from?! I tend to just watch them while they go crazy and play. I do love it when they come over and give me pets and belly rubs.
I am pretty much potty trained already and seem to be kennel trained. I am given free roam of part of the house with access to a doggie door and do well.
Given that I am so young, it is hard to say exactly what my ideal home would be. I am a pretty lazy guy so far so would probably enjoy a calmer family that can still commit to exercising me...I am still just a pup after all! ;) While I have never been on a hike, I have heard tales about it from the other dogs and I really don't think that would be my thing. If I had to, I would do it for you but would probably keep dreaming about my dog bed at home. I will happily walk up to and greet new people, but if they aren't paying me attention I am out of there.
What do you say? Think we are meant to be together? Apply for me at https://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/hx000BP7nbQvjHX49Uur80FV3
Please I am begging you though, only apply to adopt me if you can keep me forever. If you can't keep me through ALL of life's changes, don't take away my chance at forever with someone else.
Please don't be the one that makes me have to be passed around a few months/years down the line because things got "ruff". That just isn't fair to me.
I would NEVER give up on you, so please don't give up on me. I want to be your forever...not your until dog.

FROM HIS FOSTER MOM ↓
~Like his brother, Major Tom enjoys a good stinky shoe as a snack and will clean your floors if you drop ANY food within seconds. This guy is the laziest couch potato I’ve ever met considering he’s a puppy so although I enjoy it, it might not be for everyone. He is a kind old soul and is vocal when he is jealous or doesn’t agree with something. Overall he’ll be a great pet in any situation but an older couple or even a lonely adult seeking a best friend is where this guy will thrive.
Major Tom does really well with kids and other dogs. He would prefer a more calm home. He spends most of the day napping and cuddling. He’ll play for a little bit when his brother Mars pesters him enough but would much prefer to sit at my feet and watch all the chaos around him. And he’ll start barking when I pet other dogs because he’s jealous and he wants me to himself so I would think he would enjoy a home with maybe no other dogs or just one other dog. He definitely likes all the attention on him.~
