About Me

Meet Magnus, who was originally owned by an older couple who could no longer give him the care he needed-while the wife was somewhat younger and still working, the husband had just turned 81 and in her words “ I work full time, and taking care of 2 males man and dog plus the job and the house leaves little time to give Magnus the attention he needs.” She asked us to please find a loving family that would, as he deserved much better. We will.

Magnus is a wonderful older guy who really does not act like it- he still has a lot of puppy in him. He is perfectly house trained, and will go and stand by the door and whines gently if he needs to go out. He has good house manners in general, and never gets in to anything that he shouldn’t. He usually prefers to sleep on the floor, but he does enjoy snoozing in his bed as well. He has had some training, and follows basic commands very well, such as no, sit, stay, come and shake hands, and he loves that he gets a treat as a reward. He is as velcro as they come, and will follow his foster dad all day, and while he’d love him around 24/7 (what dog wouldn’t, particularly goldens lol) he can be left alone and is well behaved while he awaits his dad’s return. And when he returns, oh boy the joy!    Welcome Home!  Video He will welcome him with one of his squeaky toys -most recently he has been greeting him with his slipper. He loves his walks-he knows where his leash and harness are kept and he gets very, very excited when it is walk time, taking his leash in his mouth to acknowledge that he’s ready. He might pull a bit at the onset of the walk, as usually he is eager to find the “perfect” spot to do his business, but after that he calms down and walks quite well. He is a very social guy, and enjoys meeting all in his path, both 2 and 4 legged. He loves car rides, hoping that a dog park might be the destination, and enjoys hanging his head out the window, taking in the sights and smells

One of his favorite things in the world is swimming. Upon arrival at his foster home, he made his way to the back yard and straight in to the pool, making himself right at home. He LOVES his pool, maybe a little too much lol as his dad now restricts his access, partly also due to his drinking the water-not so great for him.    Pool Video    Video # 2   He also loves affection and attention-if you are petting him and stop, and he is not done he will gently grab your hand to let you know you might be done, but he is not. He loves balls and playing fetch, particularly with his oversized blue ball that will accompany him to his new home. He has been great with all dogs he has met, both large and small and with young kids as well.   Video #3    He has not met any felines during his stay with us, thus his behavior with cats is unknown. That said, he is such a sweet guy that with the proper introductions and a dog savvy cat he would probably do just fine.

My Ideal Home

Magnus is that (almost) perfect pup that will adapt to just about any situation. He is a very go with the flow kind of guy, who can accompany his family on any number of outings and experiences, but is also very happy to chill and kick back on the sofa at the end of the day (yes, he’s allowed on the furniture). He would love an active home and family-he spent far too much time being mostly sedentary in his prior life and he obviously enjoys so much more. He would do fine as an only dog, or with another friendly canine companion. Kids are good as he has been very gentle with those he has met. High on his wish list is a pool, a lake or a beach-he is a born swimmer and really, really, really enjoys it. He is an absolute charmer-one of the sweetest, friendliest and well behaved dog you would want to meet, and he deserves a wonderful family who will give him the love and attention he craves.
