Adoptable Dog of the Week- Magellan

PetGuide logo

This cute fella will show you the world! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Magellan, a 3 year old Mastiff mix from Parkersburg, West Virginia. This big-hearted boy is neutered, up to date with his vaccinations, and microchipped. Magellan would do best as an only pet in the household, and owing to his size, he needs a family without children or with kids over the age of 12.

The bigger the pup, the bigger the heart! And in Magellan’s case, it guarantees a lot of love for you as this cutie pie weighs 85 pounds. He is large and energetic and needs an owner that would appreciate his vigor. Magellan requires a home with a secure, big backyard where he could roam, run around and play to burn off that extra energy, as well as regular walks. He has never been taught basic obedience, though, so he’ll need someone experienced to teach him the ropes. Magellan is more than willing to learn, all he needs is a human willing to work with him!

Fun-loving and easy-going, Magellan could blossom into a great companion dog to an active family. He is somewhat selective with other dogs, so he’d have to do a meet and greet with his potential four-legged roommate before adoption, but ideally, he’d be the only pet in the household. And since Magellan is so big and full of energy, he doesn’t mix well with little kids: he could potentially knock a young child down inadvertently during play, so his rescuers recommend he goes to an adult-only home or to a family with children over the age of 12.

If a ‘diamond in the rough’ sounds like a fun challenge and not as a chore, Magellan is the guy for you. He is sweet, full of life, and just wants someone to shower him with love- and in case you think you’re the right person for the task, contact Humane Society of Parkersburg for more information on how to adopt him.
