Comments and Description:
This is Murphy, our 3 year male yellow lab. He is a pure bred purchased and trained from Duck Buster Kennels in Emmett. His father is Cache.
Murphy is a great lab, is very intelligent, well mannered, and obedient. He has a lot of energy and lives for playing fetch. We got him as just a family dog and I planned on taking him chukar hunting often since we live in Hells Canyon. However, my kids don't play with him nearly as much as I expected. As for hunting- the chukar went nearly extinct down here after the bad winter of '16 and I have not hunted with him nearly as much as he deserves. He has mostly quail hunted, and he needs more practice focusing on hit birds that go down, instead of the whole flock. He retrieves great once he gets the scent and finds the bird.
He is great with kids, but can get overly excited playing fetch and lose his awareness of his surroundings and knock down small kids (under 5-ish)
I want him to go to a great household that can give him some more attention. He has so much potential and he won't realize it as long as he is with us. He is very loyal and protective of his family (but not dangerous). Only barks when something is in his territory.
I only am charging a rehoming fee to help him find a good home. I will meet you in Cambridge, ID if desired.
