Murphy is a gentle, beautiful, large seven year old male GSD. Murphy is looking for a loving home who will appreciate all of his wonderful qualities. He’s retiring as a service dog now and is anxiously awaiting a family who will shower him with love, play and attention – as he has given all of his life.
He knows sit, down, off, leave it, and pick up. If you ask him to tell you when the UPS driver or a friend arrives, he will look out the front window. When they arrive he will bark and come and get you. He can sing and will bark on command with a hand signal.
He loves children and adults. Murphy has been around cats, horses and cows, he is curious and pretty much ignores other animals. Theone thing he does like to do is chase after rabbits and squirrels, so a fenced yard is a must for Murphy.
Murphy has spent some time at doggy day care but preferred to spend his time with the care takers and not playing with other dogs as he’s focused on humans. We strongly recommend that he be the only dog in the home. Murphy has lived with his human companion his entire life helping her with basic tasks such as picking things up off of the floor and helping with laundry along with being a wonderful companion. Unfortunately, she is no longer able to offer Murphy the life he deserves and say “it’s time for Murphy to be a dog.”
As with a lot of GSD’s he does have a bit of a touchy stomach. No pork or high protein foods for Mr. Murphy. He does very well on Taste of the Wild dog food. We feel that Murphy would do best going to a home with GSD experience, as he needs a confident owner. Murphy would do best with someone who can be home with him and not left for long periods of time alone as he has always spent his time with a person.
Murphy is healthy, neutered and up to date on all of his vaccinations. Fill out an application for Murphy today!
