Mr. Magoo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Mr. Magoo's Story...
Mr. Magoo is a senior poodle (mix?). His age estimate is around 10-12 years old. Magoo gets around great for an older fella, especially considering he has cataracts and is completely blind. Magoo does need help up and down stairs (they are dangerous for him because he can't see but is still very confident) but he is more than happy to let you pick him up. His healthy weight is around 13-14 lbs.

Magoo likely lost his sight due to uncontrolled diabetes. When he arrived with RCHS he had lost about 1/3rd of his body weight and was very sick due to this untreated condition. He is now back up to a healthy weight and feeling much much better. Magoo's adopter will need to be willing to continue working with their vet to keep his diabetes under control and be comfortable giving twice daily insulin injections. We would love to see Magoo go to a home with experience managing diabetes but we are also open to adopters willing to learn. Magoo also has 3 eye medications that he takes twice a day for dry eye and a luxating eye lens.

Magoo absolutely charms every person he meets. He is an incredibly good natured dog. Even when he felt terrible he never gave anyone any trouble about anything. He just wants to love and be loved. Magoo is very affectionate but not super clingy. He will happily nap on your lap or by your side but doesn't require constant contact. He is just as happy to take a nap on the people furniture by himself. He is confident and independent but loves his people. He is also great with other animals, although some may be annoyed by him bumping into them. Magoo is excited for short walks and would love a yard to sun himself in (although this is not a requirement for his adoption). He is completely, solidly potty trained up to 4-5 hours at a time but does sometimes wear a diaper overnight. Magoo is not much of a barker but will whine and growl when he wants to go out or thinks he should get dinner early.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mr. Magoo, a Manhattan Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Manhattan, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Manhattan.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Manhattan already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Manhattan breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Manhattan paves the way for another one to be saved.
