Small Dog Trainable: No
Good w/ Children: Yes
Fostered by (location): Augusta, GA
Additional Details: Murphy is a very handsome black brindle- we don't get many this color. He has 27 races listed at Lincoln Park where he raced at 72lbs. His sire is DK's Prime Time and his dam is Stat E Tara. He will celebrate his 9th birthday on June 23rd. Murphy has had some very bad luck and has been in a couple of different homes and he was returned to us this time in pretty poor condition. He is expected to make a full recovery but needs to put on quite a few lbs. One of his former families did a lot of obedience training with him so Murphy comes with a lot of training. This is a smart boy with excellent house manners too. Murphy was a certified Therapy Dog and participated in Therapy Dog visits with one of his previous owners so is a very special guy that is wonderful with children and adults and very well behaved in public settings. He walks nicely on leash, doesn't jump and calmly and politely goes up to people for love. Murphy was great with the cats at he met at the vet clinic and gave them kisses so we think he will be fine living with them. He was fine with small dogs he did Therapy Dog visits with. Although Murphy has always been great with small dogs and all dogs he has met, because of an incident that Murphy MAY have been involved in years ago we would rather not place him in a home with small dogs. He is fine with other dogs and gets along well with everyone though in our experience.
