Before becoming a sweetheart at the Naperville Area Humane Society, Major, a 3-year-old dog, and his brother Hilo were at a shelter in Quincy, Illinois. The staff at NAHS saved them from euthanasia.

Known for their quirky and friendly spirits, Major and Hilo won the hearts of everyone at the shelter. They are sociable, playful, and loved by all.

The staff at NAHS recently shared a video of Major and Hilo to showcase their lovable personalities and unique charms.

Overlooked Without Reason

Although Major is a great dog with a friendly demeanor and good manners, he was consistently overlooked by potential adopters for unknown reasons.

Volunteers at NAHS described Major as intelligent, affectionate, and deserving of a loving family. Everyone at the shelter adored him and wished for him to find his forever home.

Major’s Love for His Buddies

Despite his caregivers, Major loved spending time with other dogs at the shelter, regardless of their size or temperament.

The Big Day Arrives

Jose and Major instantly connected, and after a heartwarming farewell to his shelter friends, Major jumped into the truck with his new dad.
