Prior to being the beloved companion of everybody at the Naperville Area Humane Society, Major, the three-year-old dog, lived at a nearby shelter in Quincy, Illinois, with his brother Hilo.

Major and Hilo are renowned for having extraordinary and eccentric spirits! They simply adore playing games, and they are both very outgoing and kind to everyone at the shelter!

A video featuring Major and Hilo was recently shared by the NAHS team, highlighting their endearing personalities and showcasing their key attributes.

They will have reached their 365-day milestone at NAHS this coming weekend, and we don’t know why. In order to share with you all of the wonderful things that our staff and volunteers have to offer, we put together this movie featuring some of them—the people who know them the best,” they wrote.
