Major could not have come into our lives at a better time.  We were all heartbroken after the Labrador we had been fostering for nineteen months returned to his owner after he completed drug and alcohol treatment.  When this big, goofy, and very smelly guy came into our house with his foster mom, we just knew that he would become part of this family.

We had a few hiccups when he first came to our house.  Having primarily lived in an outdoor dog run, he knew very little English commands and his house manners weren’t the greatest.  After stealing a string of Italian sausages off the counter and me comically chasing him around the house, he has learned that counter surfing is not okay. He walks well on the leash, loves playing at the dog park and enjoys going for car rides, especially when we visit his favorite store, Home Depot.

Major is a very quick learner and eager to please. Our eleven year old daughter has enrolled him in the local 4-H Paw Power club where they are learning basic obedience and agility training.  This summer the program will try dock diving once the weather warms up.

I can’t thank GBR enough for bringing this bright and wonderful light into our lives.  He has truly become a member of this family and he seems just as pleased with the situation as we are.  Thank you for all that you are doing to rescue these amazing dogs and giving them the lives that they truly deserve.


Golden Bond Rescue is pleased to introduce Major (#2933), a big beautiful boy.  Major was jumping, acting goofy, and not walking on a leash at all well when he was first picked up by a GBR volunteer, but he calmed down nicely once he arrived at the vet’s office.

We are happy to report that Major is doing well in his foster home. Despite spending his life outdoors as a breeder in a kennel, he seems to be house-trained.  His leash skills are improving quickly and he doing quite well on walks with his foster mom.

Major is a great dog and looks forward to finding his forever home as soon as he heals from being neutered.
