Update: Update from Foster: Everything about Magic is gentle. The way he eats, takes a treat, and greets us. He is very well behaved. His favorite activities are sleeping, playing with the two resident dogs and chewing on his Nylabone. He has proven himself trustworthy so he can go where he pleases. When we are not home he lays by the window and his tail wags a mile a minute when he sees us! He loves to be petted and puts his head in our laps to let us know when he wants a stroke. He enjoys going for walks and gets excited but did well with an easy walk harness.
Update: Magic is at the kennel waiting for someone to come meet him and take him home. Whoever adopts this handsome dog will get a lot of love. The animal care staff say he is fun to be with and good with the other dogs when they go out to play.
Update: Magic just came north to be close to his adopters whoever they are. Magic is doing well, he now enjoys being petted and will come over to you to get his butt scratched after he has gotten to know you. He has started to play and retrieve a yellow ducky that he likes to play with. I noticed that he does not like to be hugged and held close to you - think it's because he was treated roughly sometime in his past.
