Naperville Dog Finally Finds A Forever Home

After more than a year of waiting, Major, a friendly dog, finally found his forever home. Major had been residing at the Naperville Area Humane Society, but despite his affectionate personality, he had not been adopted for over a year.

Kristen Funk, the executive director of the Naperville Area Humane Society, said that none of them could understand why Major wasn’t getting adopted because he is such a great dog. She thinks that when animals spend too long at a shelter, people tend to believe there is something wrong with them, and unfortunately, Major fell victim to that stigma.

Although Major enjoyed the company of the staff and the other dogs at the shelter, he yearned for a permanent family. Staff at the Naperville Area Humane Society became disheartened as time passed by, and Major, who was spending most of his time in the office, had no one to call his own.

Funk also mentioned that Major was beloved by the staff and volunteers, and it was tough to see him spending so much time at the shelter without anyone showing interest in adopting him.

When the humane society received a call from Jose, a semi-trailer truck driver, who was grieving the loss of his last adopted pup, Funk knew that Major had to meet him.

According to Funk, everyone at the shelter was overjoyed when Major was finally adopted and began his new life on the road with Jose.

Nowadays, Major accompanies his dad on his travels across the country, and he loves snuggling up with him every night.

Major’s story highlights the importance of adopting shelter animals and giving them the love and care they deserve. It is also a testament to the unconditional love and joy that a furry companion can bring into our lives.
