Adoption Alert ~ Murdoch #2741 - Adoption in Progress

Hi everyone…my name is Murdoch and I’m almost two years old.  I am currently staying with this wonderful family who are teaching me all the Golden Rescue ways and I think I’m doing really well.  I was a bit nervous at first meeting all these new people but now I just love my foster family.  I’m still a bit nervous when I meet anyone new but as soon as I get to know them I’m fine.  In fact, once I get comfortable, I love everyone I meet.  I also love dogs but here’s the thing.  I recently got what you humans call ‘fixed’ and I’m still recovering so my hormones are all over the place and I want to hump dogs and human legs.  My doc says that habit will go away…it’s just part of the recovery.  It’s a reflex thing supposedly but worry not, I don’t have an aggressive bone in my body.  I’m a lover not a fighter.  My amazing foster mom calls me sweet and gentle.  Isn’t that nice???  I love my walks.  I love to play and I particularly love belly rubs.  I’m not a big barker although I might bark a little if you’re not paying attention to me enough.  I know my commands and I’m not bad on that leash thingy.  I’m currently on allergy and anxiety medication but the doc thinks I won’t need either in a little while.  He thinks I just need to get settled in my new forever home and feel totally safe and secure.  Other than that, the doc gave me 100% on my test.  I l love playing fetch with my ball and look forward to my two walkies a day.  I tend to sleep in my crate with the door open and as much as I don’t like it when you leave me alone, after a while I simply settle down and go to sleep and await your return.  By the way I REALLY don’t like getting surprized with loud noises.  I might be the poster boy for ‘Silence is Golden’ (teehee).  Well that’s about it for me.  Gotta go!  My foster mom just threw my ball into the snow and I’m going to fetch it and while I’m at it, I’m going to have a big, big roll in the snow.  It’s no mystery that we love the snow, right?  Hey…Murdoch Mystery…that’s got a ring to it!
