Murray's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Murray's Story...
I am learning to answer to the name Murray, namesake of the Scottish tennis champion Andy Murray, but I will very quickly learn to come running with my tail wagging to any name my forever family chooses for me. My beautiful wavy coat probably indicates that somewhere in my background there are United Kingdom bloodlines since the Goldens over the pond tend to have curlier coats than their American cousins. Did you know that our breed originated in Scotland in 1868 when sportsman Lord Tweedmouth married two very special dogs called Nous and Belle? While my ancestors came from Scotland, I was surrendered to a shelter in Scottsboro AL, and the staff there knew immediately that Adopt-a-Golden Birmingham would find me just the right new home. I am an eight-year old neutered male, weighing 99.5 pounds. A little stiffness in my back legs may be result of minor arthritis issue, but good brisk walks with my new family will help me lose a bit of weight and loosen up those legs. I admit that I really don’t like thunderstorms, especially if there are no humans around to comfort me, but there are great training tips that can help me learn to cope with storms. I am in the prime of life with lots of good years ahead to double return the love my forever family gives to me - Much Love, Murray Please visit me at www.adoptagoldenbirmingham.com or call 205-908-1566 or email ashawrn@gmail.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murray, a BIRMINGHAM Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever for sale in BIRMINGHAM, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in BIRMINGHAM.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in BIRMINGHAM 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 BIRMINGHAM 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 Golden Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in BIRMINGHAM paves the way for another one to be saved.
