Murphy's Story...
This beautiful boy is Murphy, a 9 year old flat coated retriever that would absolutely love a wonderful, forever home of his own. Murphy had a home for the last 5 years, but was turned in because he "chases small animals". Murphy was brought in to us wearing a muzzle, and it sounds as if he wore a muzzle often in the last 5 years, since he has a sore and scarring on his mouth from it. Murphy sat calmly while being turned in, while our office cats roamed around and our birds chirped at him, and we have seen no aggression toward other animals from him at all, but he will need a home with no other animals due to his owners statements. Murphy is truly a sweet, loving, calm, affectionate boy. He whines from time to time because he feels a bit lost, but he is so gentle and easy going, he just breaks your heart. Murphy is so well behaved. He walks perfectly on a leash, will sit and offer you his paw when asked, and takes treats like a perfect gentleman. Even in our exercise yard, Murphy prefers to casually stroll around, checking things out, as opposed to running and playing. He wants more than anything to be by your side and have you pet him, and tell him everything will be ok. Murphy just adores people and is good with children too. He just wants so badly to go home.....a forever, loving home is all he's asking for. File#23607 6/10/14

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Forked River Flat-Coated Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Flat-Coated Retriever for sale in Forked River, or seeking a Flat-Coated Retriever dog from a breeder in Forked River.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Forked River already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Forked River breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Flat-Coated Retriever breeders who help with Flat-Coated Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Forked River paves the way for another one to be saved.
