At last, the long awaited arrival of our newest family member...Major.
Major was abandoned and left at a local animal shelter. In Portugal, people take vacation for several weeks at a time and this usually happens in July and August. When they go on vacation, they leave their dog in the street. This could have been what happened with Major, we aren't sure. But whatever happened it has left him frightened of loud, sharp noises and fast movements. We met him on Monday when the "case worker", a very nice lady, brought him by so we could play with him and see if we would be a good family for him. She took him with her when she left cause he still needed to be seen by a vet and trainer, then she brought him back to us today. We've been anticipating his return all week. There has been a collar, leash, brush, food and toys waiting for him since Tuesday. He is a precious "big baby" who loves attention and loves to fetch a ball. Here are a few pictures of our family getting to know him better:
