Pet of the Week – Meet Murray!

murray3  Murray1   murray2

TBC is partnered up with the Atlanta Pet Rescue in an effort to help find these wonderful animals forever homes! Each week, we will be promoting a “Pet of the Week” that is in need of a loving home.

This week’s “Pet of the Week” is Murray an adorable 5 year old male Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Blend.

We have all heard the expression making lemons into lemonade.  Murray is an amazing and loyal boy.  He has so many good qualities, but also some issues that will need work once he is adopted.  That’s why we are looking for a home for him that has the right ingredients to turn this lemon into lemonade!

Murray’s strong points:

*House trained

*Crate trained

*Very loyal once he is comfortable with his people

*Playful

*Loves outdoor activities

*Loves attention, but isn’t overly needy

 

Murray’s issues that will need to be worked on:

*He can be leash reactive

*He can be protective of “his people” and his home

*Needs time to warm up to strangers

 

The type home Murray is looking for:

*Adults only

*No cats or dogs in the household

*A home willing to continue behavior modification and training at home with him

*No apartments

Murray has worked very hard with his behavior modification.  He is also working on entering the sport of K9 Nosework.  Murray’s adopters will have a world of support at their fingertips.

If you are the special person that deserves this special boy, contact Laura today at laura@atlantapetrescue.org or come to see us at the shelter!

Check out more info on this sweet guy here.

The Three R’s of Referrals

Social network

Do you know what the three R’s in the word referral stand for?  Their meaning is the key to success in word-of-mouth marketing.  To truly understand what the purpose of “networking” really is, it is important to understand the meaning of the Three R’s in the word Referral.  If you always remember what these three R’s stand for you will have the right “mindset” when networking with others.

The Three Rs stand for:

RELATIONSHIP where the other person is willing to RISK their REPUTATION for you.

When someone is willing to pass you a high quality referral this is exactly what they are doing.  They are putting their reputation with their client, family member, or friend on the line for you.  They are trusting that you will make their referral happy to have been referred to you and that you will not damage their relationship with the referral even if it doesn’t work out.

It is important to realize this is what is happening.  It is also important that before you have any expectations of receiving any type of referral from someone in your network that you ask whether you have you met this requirement?  Have you built the appropriate relationship with this person where they will be comfortable risking their reputation?  Have you earned that level of trust and confidence?

Networking is about developing these relationships with other professionals.  It is about developing a web of contacts with people you give and receive referrals from.  There will always be a time element involved in this process but the more you learn how to network effectively the less time it will take to see results.

So remember to always ask: Have I developed a RELATIONSHIP with this person where they are willing to RISK their REPUTATION for me?
