Adoptable Dog of the Week - Magoo

Tall, handsome, and loyal? Where do I sign? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Magoo, a 4 years old Great Dane from Salem, Oregon. This gorgeous guy is neutered, and his adoption fee also covers a microchip, vaccinations, and deworming, as well as some goodies such as a collar and leash, and a pet insurance trial. Magoo is good with smaller dogs, but big breeds can make him nervous. He hasn’t been tested around cats or children while in the shelter.

Magoo’s Tale

If you want a pooch with a regal look and gentlemanly manners, Magoo is your guy. He does take a while to warm up to new people, but once he’s relaxed around you, he’ll show his affectionate, snuggly side. He’s a big dog with an even bigger heart! If you’re offering treats, all the better – he’ll take them slowly like the gentleman he is and you’ll earn a few points with him. Magoo is a giant breed dog and weighs 109 pounds, so he needs an experienced handler – he’s leash trained, but he can pull from time to time, and you have to be sure you can handle a big pooch like him tugging on the leash.

Magoo gets along fine with smaller dogs and wouldn't mind sharing his new home with a petite canine roommate, but he can be a bit nervous around larger dogs, so if you already have a big breed, they might not be a perfect match. As he was picked up as a stray before being brought to the shelter, his rescuers don’t know how he gets along with children or cats, as he hasn’t had a chance to spend time around either. 

If Magoo sounds like the perfect fit for your family and lifestyle, contact Willamette Humane Society to learn more about him and the adoption process.
