NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Magnus is a wonderful boy who enjoys pats and a good belly scratch. He loves zoomies with his doggy friends, tug-of-war and exploring the world around him. The more time his foster family spends with Magnus, the more his personality begins to shine. He is always so happy to see his humans when they wake in the morning or come home after being out for a bit. If there are visitors, Magnus does get a bit overwhelmed but he adjusts beautifully if he can sit near you and feel safe. We get the impression he isn’t used to being the centre of attention.

Magnus loves his walks. He does pull a little on lead but he is just excited to be out and about in the fresh air. Magnus can be unsure around new dogs that he meets but no doubt this will improve as his confidence grows and he is provided with further socialisation.

He has on a couple of occasions marked his territory inside but we are working on this with Magnus. He understands the command to sit and his responsive nature coupled with his smarts will see him thrive with further training.

At this stage we feel Magnus would be great in a teenage/adult home with a companion dog that will help him come out of his shell and learn to really enjoy all that life has to offer. Magnus does bark at the resident cat so his new home will be best if it is feline free.

Magnus is adorable, inside and out. Whoever gets to welcome this boy into their hearts and home will be very lucky indeed.

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. All necessary vet work such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment is also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
