Magnum is a super sweet boy who loves attention, cuddles - and squeaky toys. Now in foster, this playful, outgoing boy loves to cuddle and snuggle with his fosters and hug them and give kisses. He sure wants to be part of their pack!

This active boy loves fetching tennis balls and going for hikes and walks. He is great on a leash, never pulling. His enthusiasm for hiking can be surprising since he is a tripod boy. He came to APA! with an injured front left leg that had to be amputated. He can be a little off balance on his walks, but still enjoys them so much.

Magnum also loves car rides, and at home he also enjoys playing with enrichment toys. He thinks crunchy, crinkly, squeaky toys and food puzzles are such fun and he may counter surf out of curiosity. He's interested in cats he sees and can be a bit anxious when he sees dogs.

He easily enters his crate and settles down for sleeping and will stay there when home alone. He's also done well when his foster briefly left him uncrated while she was gone. He was happy to greet her at the door when she returned. He is house-trained and will go to the door when he wants out.

Magnum is a smart, confident boy who will love a home with active adults who can take him for those walks and hikes he enjoys. He will hope they are home most of the day. Come meet him. Offer him a squeaky toy and he'll follow you home!
