Adorable dog 'perches' himself on top of the house waiting for the owner to return
Neighbors were shocked when they found Murray, a six-year-old Vizsla, perched on the roof of his owner's house waiting to greet him
If you know anything about dogs, you will definitely know how much they miss their owner when they're away from them, even if it is for a quick visit to the supermarket. And every time a dog is returned to the arms of its owner, it will burst with joy to celebrate the reunion. Also, it is common knowledge that dogs are angels and mankind does not deserve them. That said, Murray, a six-year-old Vizsla, is one creative canine. His shenanigans have already made him a huge star across social media.
In his uniqueness, Murray does not simply wag his tail to greet his owner. He does it in a rather unconventional manner by climbing to the highest point on the roof of his owner AJ Allee's house.
“We didn’t realize it until neighbors came and rang our doorbell,” AJ Allee told Bored Panda. “It was terrifying because we were afraid he would jump or fall. He moved so quickly on the roof and ran to the edge, then stopped.”
At first, AJ Allee tried to get Murray by standing on the patio. He ultimately figured how his dog got there and blocked the entrance so that he does not do it again “That lasted 3 days,” says AJ Allee. “He found another place so we accepted it. Then it became funny.”
According to Allee, Murray casually goes up to talk to anyone who is walking their dog in the neighborhood or driving by their house. “Then they would come to our door and tell us about it, we have to act shocked,” laughs Allee.
In an exclusive conversation with Unilad, Allee further explained how he was scared when Murray did this a year ago the first time. "Murray has so much energy. He loves to please and loves his owners, always sticking by your side," he said. "To reach the top he climbs the stairs at the back of the house then leaps six feet to get to the first level roof. He then leaps again to get to the second level roof.
"The first time he did it I was scared and we tried to keep him from doing it but it turned out that the breed is known for climbing on things," he added.
Vizslas are known for "climbing on things", however, Allee says he has not heard of other dogs climbing to the top of their owner's roof to greet them.
Murray's abilities have "amused and shocked" several neighbors ever since he entered the locale.
According to Wikipedia, the Vizsla is a natural hunter endowed with an excellent nose and an outstanding trainability. Although they are lively, gentle-mannered, demonstrably affectionate and sensitive, they are also fearless and possessed of a well-developed protective instinct, the website reads.
