Murray is a very handsome, super sweet boy who can definitely be taught new tricks! While he is an adult dog, Murray came to us not knowing basic commands. But he is a quick study and loves positive reinforcement. He’s completely treat-motivated and loves good belly rubs as well. When he meets people he is polite and doesn’t jump but he will lean and let you know he is there.
One of my favorite things to do with Murray is take walks. He walks well on leash – he never pulls or lunges, but we do have to stop and smell the flowers, food, and other scents often. Murray doesn’t react to barking dogs, cats running by, or people walking by with other dogs. He rides well in the car and is house broken. He has free roam of the house when we’re gone and his behavior is exemplary. Murray doesn’t get on furniture unless invited and has never had an accident in the house. If a door is left open, however, Murray may dart, so learning to “stay” despite an open door is his current work-in-progress.
Murray is dog-friendly, even putting up with our difficult resident dog. He met one cat so far with us and he wasn’t impressed – so it’s likely he could share a home with a dog-savvy cat. What he loves most is snuggle time with his people. Murray tends to resource-guard his people and toys from other dogs so his fur-ever home shouldn’t have any children under 15 years old.
All in all, Murray is a great guy with an old soul and a wiggly butt! I could brag on him for hours but you really should meet him to see how amazing he is. He will make a wonderful addition to any house! I know he has brought me love, laughs, and awes every day.
