Dog Story Are you looking for a hunting companion? One you can train and mold to your own personal style? A dog who is a willing companion with a zest for life? Meet Murphy. Murphy is a 6 year old orange roan. He is a stunning dog, as his pictures reflect. Murphy was purchased by his family from a breeder, and life just got in the way of making Murphy a permanent family member. Murphy lived his life in the back yard with little socialization. He didn’t understand how to be a part of a pack, wasn’t too sure that other dogs could be friends and developed a very strong prey drive. His family surrendered him to ABR realizing he needed much more than they could provide. ABR reached out to Cheri Lucas, a successful dog behaviorist in Templeton, CA, and owner of Second Chance at Love. Cheri took Murphy and indeed has given him a second chance at life. With Cheri’s training and leadership, Murphy is ready to move to his forever home. Murphy’s ideal family will be willing to work with Murphy to train him to hunt. He has all of the natural abilities, he just needs to be guided to perform properly. His family must have patience, be Brittany savvy, and work with Murphy in a strong, but gentle manner. Murphy will not do well in a house with cats, and if you have another dog, you must bring your dog with you to meet Murphy.Murphy is a wonderful dog, full of love to give to the right family.
