Mr. Magoo, The Happiest Blind Aussie!

by Jackie B.

I adopted Mr. Magoo from a woman in NH who had rescued him from the south, where he apparently wandered freely. His southern rescue group called him "Romeo", because he was so loving.

Mr. Magoo is now about three years old. He gets two to three walks a day, and loves to play with his toys. My daughter bought him a toddler bed, and he loves to sleep on that, right at the end of my bed.

Mr. Magoo is blind, or at a minimum, has limited vision. Sometimes we think he sees things, and he is very adept at navigating his walks, and around the house. He loves to run for the sun, at which he happily jumps and barks.

He takes naps on my couch, and often steals sandwiches behind my back, clean off the plate, without a crumb left!

He has become a real watchdog in the house, and makes up for his lack of vision with excellent hearing. He knows every car and motorcycle that goes by, and will literally grumble in his sleep if he hears a new one!

Mr. Magoo is an example of how great it is to adopt a dog with disabilities. He doesn't know he's impaired. He's one of the happiest dogs I've ever had!
