Pet of the Week
It's fire season and Murphy is on the alert. He can feel it deep down in his spots when conditions are dangerous. Murphy is an 8-year-old unneutered Dalmatian, He's not working with a fire crew right now, but he's available. Murphy is a big dog, and with a full bladder, he's pretty sure he can drench a small ground fire. Or he can ride along with a firefighting crew and provide moral support. Or he can be a loyal, loving family pet. Whatever. Murphy's anxious to please. He's sweet and gentle. He just gets a bit aggressive when other dogs are around because he knows they might get some of the love and he wants it all for himself.
