Murph's Story: Murph has been owned by person who is alcohol dependent and now needs to have have a routine and supportive measures in his life to gain a sense of security. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Murph will be neutered, chipped, and undergo vaccinations. Murph came in to our Rescue Centre nr Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, the first step is to complete and submit our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. We do not discuss dogs without a homing questionnaire submission. You must be ready and we will only contact you if we have a suitable dog. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum Adoption Donation is £250 (£400 for pup under 1 yr old). This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers in particular. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.

Murph's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal an evolving picture and positive skills as they build trust.

Original referral information: 9.6.24: Murph is an entire male Patterdale type who we know has lived with another dog but he is said to not be dog friendly. Murph's owner is alcohol dependent and goes off on benders so he is likely used to being left for long periods and he is food possessive (not surprising as probably didn't get regular meals). Murph has been 1st vaccinated and needs out ASAP

Murph came into RescueRemedies on the 17th June 24

Murph and I enjoyed two walks last week. He had only just come in when I took him out first time and he was slightly unsettled but the walk soon sorted him out. He has loads of energy and just loves being outside. He has so much energy he snatches at grass instead of stopping to eat it! I did not notice any dog reactivity but it is early days and that could well change.
He is a friendly, lovely little dog and I am so looking forward to walking him again. wheyhey.gif

I took Murph out for a walk accompanied by Karen and Jupiter, Murph was happy to follow Jupiter, he did not show any interest in any dogs we passed. Murph walks at good pace, as Helen mentioned he snatches grass instead of stopping, I am sure in time he will settle and slow down to enjoy sniffs. He takes treats very gently and has the most beautiful soft fur. Beautiful boy bighug.gif

The Wonderful Murphy

First walk...full on smacker on the chops when first entered pen. What can I say but a joyful, ball of Patterdale energy and love. Really accepting of me as never met before, another smacker when in paddock. Busy busy. For a home with a secure garden, awareness of their energy and fun nature, and time to do some heel work he would be perfect. Oh and top tip....white T shirts not a good Idea but the muddy paw print is a wonderful touch ❤️😊

Lizzie has summed up Murph really well. He is a complete bundle of joy - full of energy and enthusiasm for life. It is a joy to watch him in the paddock as he runs and runs and runs. Murph and I have had several walks through the woods - he does tend to pull but that is all part of his amazing energy. He would calm down I am sure with the right owner who can spend time with him as Murph clearly did not get much positive interaction from his previous owner.
He does not seem to be dog reactive although it is early days to assess this properly and of course dogs change after they have been in rescue care a while.
You don't need an introduction to Murph - he loves everyone - especially if you give him treats and take him for walks. Hopefully this bundle of joy won't be in the rescue too long. Kiss of love.gif
