    Name: Murray

    Breed/Gender: Border Collie Mix/Male

    Age: 2-3 years old

    Personality: Gentle, friendly Border Collie mix who loves everyone. Murray is good on leash and very food-motivated and attentive. He seems very unsure of himself around other dogs, and though he’s polite in the passing, he would probably prefer to be the only dog in a home. Murray will be a wonderful family companion.

    APS Kennel: 3

    Barley's thoughts: My pappy talks A LOT about his childhood dog Lucky, who was a fluffy Border Collie. He goes on and on about how smart and fun and loyal he was and how when his family would go camping, he and his brother would let themselves get lost in the woods and then Lucky would guide them back to the campsite (I said the dog was smart, not that my pappy was necessarily smart). Am I a tad jealous of this Lucky? Maybe. But heck, if Murray is anything like Lucky was, he sure will make his owner happy and leave memories for a lifetime.
