Location: Calistoga, Calif.
Dog Name: Magnum Frank
Age: 4 1/2
Breed: German Shepherd
In a Word: Spoiled
Job Title: He's an official winery greeter (assisted by the GM's Labrador Retriever, Bristol) and a sneaky sandwich thief.
Star Quality: He leans on people for love and pets, and he's so tall that your lap makes the perfect headrest.
Best Bud: Magnum is a mama's boy but loves to spend his days with his buddies Bristol, Brix and Leia.
Favorite Reward: Tomahawk steak bones
Obsession: Howling at mail carriers and letting you know when he wants more of his favorite snacks
Favorite Getaway: A staycation on the grassy and sunny hillside of his Rutherford home
Forgivable Flaw: Leaving a puddle of drool on your lap each time he visits for head petting
Background Story: Magnum was surrendered by his original owner at 6 months old and brought into the Westside German Shepherd Rescue in Los Angeles. Fortunately for Magnum he only spent one night in the rescue because we showed up the next day, which was adoption day, and brought Magnum home. Even though Richard picked out Magnum, it's Leslie who he's most attached to.
