Arrival Story:
We have had Andy since he was a pup. Our Flattie was pining for our old long legged black curly bitch. Curlies are hard to come by and we were lucky to find Andy.

Murray River Reds are a breed specific to Australia, particularly the SE. They have been around over a hundred years but there is no breed club or standard. They make wonderful, faithful pets and are good working dogs. I have owned many types of retrievers but these would have to be my favourites. Andy loves kids and likes to go to school. He loves bagpipes and will sing when they are played. He gets quite excited when he hears pipes and will even try to charge through closed doors looking for the piper! He also loves to retrieve, unfortunately I wish it wasn't snakes. Recently he presented me with a l ive 4 foot brown snake! He was SO proud. Andy has been re-homed to South Australia
