Update on Murdock

Adopted October 2016

Dog’s former name Hank

What are the best things about your dog?
Murdock is a loving and affectionate dog. He always wants to be by his humans getting all of their attention. He’s always the first to greet you at the door, even if it means pushing his brother and sister out of the way.

Tell us about your dog’s favorite activities, sports or training:
He loves to “plop” on his humans and grossly invade their space. As much as he loves his people though, he still loves to play and snuggle up with his older brother and younger sister (both SAB alumni). He also likes fetch with frisbees and stuffed animals.

Give us some examples of how your dog likes to spend his/her time:
Napping, chewing on bones, destroying stuffed animals, playing chase and bitey face with his siblings, and snuggling up with his people.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments to tell us about?
Murdock overcame separation anxiety and now is able to have free reign of the house without leaving a destructive path in its wake.

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Murdock doesn’t have the “typical” pittie look, but he sure does have the pittie love and affection ?? most people don’t believe that he’s part pit bull.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Murdy, Hufflepuff, Dirty Murdy

When birthday gifts mean so much more

When birthday gifts mean so much more

This summer, something a little magical happened.

When former adopter Bernadette Heaney-Deuel started planning a birthday party for her kids Henry (9) and Hazel (6), she asked them if they would like to receive gifts at the party or ask friends and family for donations to an organization. Both kids agreed that they wanted to donate gifts to the rescue where their beloved Bosco came from, Save-a-Bull.

They sent out invitations explaining how they wanted gifts to be donated. Party guests showed up with lots of stuff from the wish list and also took the time to make rope toys to add to the pile of items collected!

Henry and Hazel then personally delivered their donation to the rescue at an adoption event, where they got to play with and there thanked by dogs and puppies who really appreciate their thoughtfulness.
If kids like Henry and Hazel are our future, then the world is truly a great place.
