Magnum is ready to settle down. At 8 years old, he is losing his home yet again through no fault of his own. We don’t like to dwell on a dog’s past, but we wish he could tell us his whole story. First, he was used as a stud dog at a BYB and banished outside when one of the kids brought a cat home, which he did not get along with. A nice person took Magnum into their home, but their recent failing health made them reluctantly surrender him. In his last home, he was taken for short leash walks, but he’d really love a yard to stretch out and run in. He has a lot of energy for an older gentleman, and his size and strength are a combination that would benefit from training. Magnum would love to learn the manners that were lacking for so long. During his walks, he likes to bark at the other dogs he sees, which is another reason why he’d appreciate a fenced yard. He has no known history with kids. He rides well in the car and wants to lay his head on the driver’s shoulder or lap. Unfortunately, Magnum tested positive for heartworm, so please consider fostering him through his treatment and recovery. He LOVES belly rubs and will give you a muzzle nuzzle when you stop petting him. He really is a sweet guy.
