Update on Murdock

Update on Murdock

Adopted: October, 2016

Dog’s former name: Hank

What are the best things about your dog?
Everything!! He is the perfect balance of sweet and goofy, affectionate and awkward, dopey and loveable. He truly is the sweetest boy around. He makes us laugh on a daily basis, and always has kisses ready for us.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He loves to be a lap dog – even though he’s close to 80lbs, he thinks he’s only 10lbs. He enjoys chewing on sticks in the yard, playing fetch with a frisbee, removing the squeakers from toys, and playing with puzzle/enrichment games.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
He is the only dog of our 3 that has every jumped onto the roof! Our backyard that is fenced in, has a high area with a retaining wall that is only about 4ft below our roof. Murdock was chasing a squirrel and, before he even realized he did it, he was on the roof! Luckily he figured it out quickly and came right back down… Suffice it to say we watch him very closely now 😉

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Murdock has never encountered someone that didn’t want to say hi to him. He just LOVES people, and he’s always smiling, wagging his tail, and eager to meet new friends. We have never had a negative reaction to him.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Murdy, Dockers, Doc McStuffins, dirty murdy (because of course it’s my white dog that loves to play in the dirt and mud)

FAST FIVE with Murdock

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy, though he is picky only when it comes to frozen kongs – he’s a princess and needs to wait for it to come to room temp before eating it!
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? He LOVES dog beds and won’t unstuff them, but he loves unstuffing toys!!!
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? CAR RIDES!
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Little bit of both… he loves the lake and swimming, but doesn’t like wading in the kiddie pool we keep out in the summer…
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Sun. All day. Every day.

Update on Griffin

Update on Griffin

Adopted: May, 2017

Dog’s former name: Duluth

What are the best things about your dog?
Everything. He is the perfect balance of sweet, sassy, affectionate, and playful. He has all of the best qualities from his breed mixes.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He is obsessed with playing fetch – he will run himself into the ground playing with his ball. He also loves brain games, puzzle toys, kongs, anything fun and mentally engaging. He loves walks and playing with his two SAB alum siblings.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
He can jump a 6ft fence, ha ha! At daycare, he will just jump the fence to switch groups and play with different pups. It’s ridiculous. As funny as this can be, he is a good boy and knows that he is only allowed to jump the yard fences at daycare, not at home!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
We haven’t had any bad experiences. Griffin is mixed with husky and chow chow. While he is 75% Am Staff, his appearance is more like a husky, but he does have a blocky head!

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Griffles, hippogriff, sassyboy

FAST FIVE with Griffin

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Splash all day
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Both! He loves the snow like a typical husky, but he loves sunbathing too!

Update on Gemma

Update on Gemma

Adopted: July, 2014

Dog’s former name: Gemma

What are the best things about your dog?
Gemma is such a loving, obedient dog. She wants to please us but is also happy doing her own thing. She has become a deeply ingrained part of our family. Gemma knows (and loves) her routines. At night, we just say, “Ok Gemma, it’s time” and she gets up, goes to the door, goes outside to pee, comes in and walks directly into her crate. She has a strong personality and is so funny and goofy!

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Sleeping! She loves to sleep. She also loves her hollee roller and kong. She does zoomies around the yard and house but hates going jogging. We’ve started doing “sniffaris” where the focus is on letting her sniff around the neighborhood, not getting in steps, and she loves them!

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
A few years ago, I trained her to jump through a hula hoop! She is very clumsy (but also very food motivated), so this was a BIG accomplishment! Also, she hates water, but surprised us last summer by joining us on the pontoon!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Everyone loves her. She’s especially popular with cat people.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Gem, Big G, Dramatic Gem, Sweet Baby Gem, Gummy Jumbo (after she had to have a bunch of teeth extracted last year and we discovered she responds to Jumbo)

FAST FIVE with Gemma

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? The piggiest
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on. And the smaller, the better!
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides!
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? No way. Not even rain.
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Sun all day son!

Update on Gracie

Adopted: February

Umm… Look at her! Amazing cuddler, greets us with the wiggle butt, she wants to cuddle with her big brother. And she also snores a bit, but don’t we all?

Not yet, but she’s pretty cool, so stay tuned!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
She’s a mix, but all my people have only asked if she’s gentle, which she is.

Hercules, Beefy, Schwartzadoggie. Those are from her other mother. I named her Gracie.

FAST FIVE with Gracie
