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 after his first month of insulin. 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 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 usually 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.
