Mr. Magoo

Hi there. My name is Mr. Magoo and I am an approximately eleven-year old pit bull mix.  I am one adorable old man. All the volunteers love me and all my quirkiness.  I rarely go for walks; instead I demand affection.  When I do decide to go for a walk, my tail just wags and I jog, sniff and have a blast. I love toys and chewing on them with me person close by my side.  I would make a great low-maintenance pal for a family with no cats.


Janine saw my picture floating around Facebook the day I was scheduled to die in a high-kill shelter.  I was quite sick and my stray hold was over.  Thankfully Janine couldn’t get my sweet face out of her mind and she called to confirm my rescue. I went straight to the veterinarians and was diagnosed with pneumonia. After recovering I came to the Speranza farm and have been melting volunteer hears since.

Check out my report card!

I am a quirky old guy who would rather chew on a toy than take a walk, but when I do walk I am well behaved.  I could use some work on my obedience skills, but am more than happy to do some training (in exchange for treats).  I am kennel trained but am a power chewer so durable toys are a must.
