Magic is just one of those dogs that every time you look at him, he makes you smile. He is a quiet boy that has a huge, goofy personality. He would love nothing more than to play ball 24/7. Even if you don’t have time to play with him, he has his own special game he’ll play by himself. He has never had an accident in the house and given the chance I believe he’d be great loose in the house when left alone. I have left him and his foster sister loose for short periods of time and they have done great. In fact, when his sister gets into something she shouldn’t, he comes and tells me. So I guess you could say he is a bit of a tattle tale! He wants nothing more than to please and be loved by his people. He has some not so subtle ways of telling you what he wants. If he wants attention, he’ll put his head under your hand and rub on you. When he thinks it’s time to go for a walk, he’ll get his leash and drag it through the house. When both dogs are leashed and ready to go, he’ll grab his foster sister’s leash and take her for a walk around the house. She happily trots alongside of him. Magic loves to go for car rides and is great in the car. He does bark if he sees other dogs or horses on the side of the road. We are working on this and he is getting better. He also doesn’t have a problem letting you know when he has to go out. He loves nothing more than to lie on the floor and get belly rubs. Although Magic is very good with his foster sister, he is not fond of other dogs. He is also much too interested in cats; therefore he cannot be placed in a home with cats.
Magic does has allergies. He has been evaluated by a specialist and has been well controlled for several months now. To keep his symptoms at bay, Magic will require weekly baths; bedding washed a few times per week and weekly allergy shots. He is great with all of this. Through all of his treatment Magic has remained a perfect gentleman. He also has a mild case of spondylosis and an unusual gait. This is not causing this boy any pain whatsoever and it doesn’t stop him from running full speed after his ball.
Because of his unusual gait, Magic has been evaluated by an orthopedic specialist and an MRI. The MRI did not indicate any significant orthopedic changes. Due to this, the orthopedic has diagnosed this as a neurological issue. This has not kept him from doing anything he wants to do.
Yes Magic has a few health issues and will require some TLC. But he appreciates everything that’s done for him. He is a wonderful boy that deserves a home that will love him and give him the caret that he needs.
