MURPHS’ TRIP TO THE PARK
One one of our volunteers took Mur[h out just after he came in and saw loads of other dogs so quite a test for a newbie…and it seems he passed with flying colours!
“Had the pleasure of new boy Murph to take to the park this morning. He’s a big dog but jumped into the back of the car. He lay down he travelled well – had to keep checking he was there.
At Stephen’s Park he jumped out met a little fluffy took no notice and walked great on a loose lead.
He saw two spaniels running loose. He showed a bit of interest but walked on then we met a lady with a pointer and big fluffy again took no notice as the lady was fussing him he leaned on her which made her laugh.
We met a lady with a cockerpoo and two young children who asked if they could stroke him. He was great and loved the fuss.
We walked on and saw a collie chasing a ball and he showed a bit of interest. I think he wanted the ball but walked on. He watched two Jack Russells running about. The best was a Dachshund puppy passed us and he looked at it looked at me then the pup as if to say what on earth is that?
Can’t fault him. Back at the car he jumped straight in put the harness on gave him a drink of water back at kennels. He didn’t want to get out but a sausage got him to jump out. Don’t think this boy will be with us long.”
MURPH’S TRIP HOME
Murph travelled brilliantly in the car, jumping in without hesitation. Apart from raising his head to peep out the window a couple of times you wouldn’t have known he was there! When we arrived home we took him on a short walk to Memorial Park to introduce him to our two greyhounds, who he leaned on in equal measure. There weren’t many other dogs about other than a fluffy white small breed which was off lead. He showed interest but was easy to distract and move on.
Back home, he had a good sniff around the garden and enjoyed having a bounce around after the tennis balls. Murph is the third homeless hound we’ve brought home now and I must say he’s been the easiest, as he just slotted in and settled very quickly. In fact wherever Adrian was, Murph wanted to be – definitely a bromance developing there! Our two weren’t in the least bit threatened by him and Mira even shared her cuddlepillar, without so much as a grumble!
We found him to be very food orientated, to the point that he was following us while drinking a cup of tea, convinced it must be something for him. Whoever homes him would have to manage that carefully. Although he was great with our older teenagers, he could be a bit too much around smaller children, particularly if they had snacks etc.
Poor Murph’s skin and coat, isn’t looking at its best at the moment, let’s hope that somebody can see past this to the lovely, inquisitive and loving dog beneath.”
Well it doesn’t really get any better than this so if you like the big gentle giants then Murph could be the boy for you!
If you’d like to visit him, then give us a ring on 0121 426 4810 or contact us to make an appointment to come to our kennels.
