Arrival Story:
What happened to Maj, shouldn't have happened to a dog. Bought as a pup from a California GSD kennel, at a few months of age, he found himself relinquished by his owner because of a divorce to her son, here in Ohio whose girlfriend abused him. The son brought him to a local vet and never came back From about 6 months of age to a little over a year, Maj lived in a cage in the vet's office, and the only socialization he received was from some of the staff. The vet's main concern were the dog's registration papers. Having exhausted every means to get those papers, his decision was to euthanize Maj, now a little over a year old, on a Monday. The staff went into action and, the Friday before, got him out of there. My daughter who just moved to Manhattan wanted a companion & jogging partner and we just happened to hear about Maj through the "rescue" grapevine. Maj went on to live the life of a Manhattan dog. The city was overwhelming at first, for a dog who had seen nothing but the inside of a vet's office for half his young life, but he became a real city boy. Because of my daughter's school & work schedule, 3 years later, Major came back to Ohio to live with me. He and I developed a bond that only someone who knows the breed would know what I'm talking about.

Bio:
At about 8 yrs. of age, after living with me for 3 yrs., Maj had an onset of symptoms, the beginning of December of 2000. In spite of medical treatment, he progressively became worse, sometimes stumbling. It was determined that he had a brain tumor. When he stumbled in an effort to greet me when I came home from work one evening, I knew I could not let this dog, my beloved Major, go on living in a twilight, and more than likely die a slow death. That night, five weeks after the onset of the first symptoms, I made a gut/heart-wrenching decision to put my boy down, and, at the vet's office, that very evening, I held him as he crossed the bridge. He was my boy and there are no words to describe just how much I miss him. My daughter and I were lucky to have such a great dog in our lives. Rest in peace, my Mayjee. I'll always love you.
