Murfee ~ in Seattle, Washington

I'm Back!

Murfee Murfee is looking for his forever home, again. He is currently back home with his foster Mom in Seattle, Washington. Preference will be given to local applications. Will consider only single mature females (over 40 with no children in the home). Another Silky or gentle dog the home would be great. No cats!

Murfee is a neutered 9 year old boy who is full of energy, loves to go for walks, likes to cuddle in your lap, and sleep under the covers at night with his human. Murfee needs a home who understands the temperament of the breed and someone who has a special gift with animals. He requires daily medication for seizures. (It is very inexpensive medication...the cost for 6 months is only $18.00). He is up to date on shots, just had his teeth cleaned, and is very handsome as you can tell. His Dr. said he is a "very healthy, strong, and a loveable little guy". Murfee does not like to be left alone and will "make sure the entire neighborhood knows when he is not happy". He will not do well in an apartment or condo dwelling. He enjoys the companionship of another dog and really and misses his little friend Sasha.

When walking, Murfee will pull on the leash and grab it in his mouth. If you use a harness and set the ground rules right away, then he will "straighten up". He needs someone who is has the patience and motivation to work with him on this behavior. He will "crate up" and goes into his crate when unsure about a situation. Since coming back to rescue, he spends very little time in his crate. The groomer said he was easy to handle, however she remained "gentle" with him. Loud voices make him nervous and uneasy. He will "air snap" if he feels threatened. He responds best to soft gentle tones, slow movement, and a calm environment. He is fine with men who are soft spoken and easy going. However, he is a dog that will benefit with a strong bond with a mature female, who is home a lot, and wants a "buddy". He will follow you from room to room, watch your every move, sleep on a nice reclining chair or sofa, and keep guard over the home. Murfee
