Murphy

Murphy

  • Murphy is a young lurcher boy – around 1.5-3 years old.
  • He is around 28 inches to the shoulder.
  • Murphy loves men and women – pretty much everyone in fact! He is a big teddy bear who craves love and cuddles.
  • He loves kids but due to his size, guarding tendencies and bouncy nature he will only be homed with children over 16.
  • Murphy varies in his reaction to other dogs at the moment out and about – he barks at some and wants to play with others.
  • He can be left for at least an hour and his foster carers are working up to leaving him for longer periods which is going well. He isn’t showing any signs of separation anxiety at the moment.
  • He is housetrained and clean indoors but is still learning to ask to go out.
  •  He is not safe around small furries and probably cannot live with cats – but he can be distracted around wildlife.
  • He loves going out in the car and LOVES going to the vet!
  • Murphy will guard food and toys from people and other dogs – his foster carers are working on his guarding around people and making real progress.
  • Very trainable and eager to please. He is incredibly quick to learn and has come a long way in a short time.
  • Murphy can be exceedingly bouncy, especially around feeding times but if you are calm he is calm – he is making great progress in a short time with his training.
  • He is easy to read and if you enter a room and ignore him he will quickly realise you arent going to fuss him or talk to him until he is still.
  • He is in foster near Middlesborough.
