Magnus has been with us for most of his life. He was adopted when he was about 2 years old but the couple had to move to a pet free house and Magnus had to come back. He can be very sweet with adults. Does not have much patience for kids. Magnus needs to live with someone who is always going to be there for him. He thrives with attention. He would be a great companion for someone who is retired, doesn't have a female dog (we do and they do not get along), and who understands the daily upkeep of this breed. Magnus requires typical daily eye and rope cleaning. He has lived with three children, however, has little patience with them.
