Last Updated: January 24, 2023
Date of Arrival: January 8, 2023
Age: 3-4 months (Birthday October 17, 2022)
Size: Current weight approx. 6-7 lbs (Adult weight expected to be 15-20 lbs)
Adoption Status: Murdoch is not yet available for adoption
Personality: Murdoch is a silly, klutzy little dude! He is enthusiastic about almost everything and extremely food motivated. His foster describes him as 'the perfect puppy' and we couldn't agree more. Murdoch was born partially blind and we believe he has some neurological/cognitive issues, but that only makes him sweeter. He is happy to just be himself - no pity parties here, only enthusiasm for living life!
House training/Pee Pad Training: Murdoch is working hard at this! His foster says he hits the pee pad about 80% of the time, and is learning to do his business outside as well.
Walks/leash training: TBD
Dogs, Cats and Other Friends: Murdoch would love a home with an active canine sibling. No toy breeds or elderly dogs for this little guy though, he isn't really aware of how hard he plays, and could injure a smaller or weaker dog without meaning to. He can be nervous around large breeds, but warms up quickly if they are friendly.
Best Home Environment: With the combination of his limited vision and puppy exuberance, Murdoch needs a home where - at least for now - stairs can be blocked off. He is really good at going up stairs, and is learning to go down, but if he's not paying attention, he won't always remember where the stairs are. This will likely change as he gets older and more aware of his surroundings.
Health: Murdoch has not yet completed his vetting. As mentioned, he does have some congenital blindness and has some neurological issues can make him a little bit wobbly on his feet.
History: Murdoch was an owner surrender.
Adoption Fee: Murdoch's adoption fee is $450.
