Major is a pup who’s behavior has actually improved while staying with us at Austin Animal Center! Over 200 days now and his behavior has changed all for the better! When he 1st arrived he was unaccustomed to leash walking and jumped up on everyone, now he will sit while you place his harness on and walks gently on a loose leash! Our volunteers love him and he has become one of their favorites! Just look at what they are saying about Major:

  • “He is one of the easiest dogs I have ever walked at the shelter”
  • “Major sits patiently while I leash him and get the harness on”
  • “He solicits petting from everyone he passes”
  • “There is nothing but loose leash for the duration of the walk”
  • “Bikers and runners have stopped on the bike path numerous times to meet this happy dog and he charms all of them”
  • “He is always easy to rekennel”
