February 2023 – Hello! It’s me, Murphy! Welp, I’m still waiting patiently for my forever home and I’ve been in boarding now for 256 days!! My Christmas wish didn’t come true, but that’s ok! Because I heard Valentine’s day is right around the corner and surely, a handsome hunk like me will win you over??
Please consider adopting me. I will do best in a home as your only pet and no small children.
December 2022 – Murphy would love nothing more for Christmas than to find his forever home where he can love and be loved! As a reminder, he walks great on a leash and does not react when encountering other people and animals while on walks. He is crate-trained and house-trained. He has no medical issues and is ready to go! He just needs to be the only pet in a home with no small children (he loves them so much he’s too protective over them). He knows these commands: sit, place (he will get on his cot), and “go to bed” (he will go into his crate). He loves to snuggle and loves playing fetch. If he’s the dog for you, fill out an application!
November 2022 – Murphy is still waiting for his forever home. He’s a handsome boy who LOVES his people. He would be best as an only dog. He knows so many commands and wants nothing more than to please his humans. He loves to walk, is very athletic, and loves playing fetch!
August 2022 – Murphy has settled into a good routine with his foster family. He continues to do well with commands such as “‘Sit”, “Place”, and “Go to bed”. He sleeps peacefully in his crate all night. He loves to go on walks and does well when he sees or encounters other people or dogs. Still no accidents in the house. Yay, Murphy! He is athletic and strong and can jump really high. He would be best with a family with no other pets as he wants to be the only one. 🙂 If you are looking for a young handsome boy who loves to play and will be obedient and loyal, Murphy may just be the one!
July 2022 – Murphy (formerly known as Danny Boy) is a really sweet, handsome, and smart boy who LOVES to play with balls, whether that be playing alone with one that squeaks or playing fetch in the yard. He is 2 years old, is house trained, crate trained, leash trained, and knows commands like “sit” and “go to bed”. This boy also knows how to use a doggie door and has had no accidents inside. He is well-behaved and does not jump on beds and furniture. He sleeps peacefully in his crate all night. Murphy gets along well with some dogs in supervised play situations but doesn’t get along with all dogs and doesn’t like to share inside space with another dog. So, he would do best as an only dog. He is overly protective of little ones in the home, so needs to be in a home with no small children. He loves to go on walks and is great on the leash. He is up to date on all his shots, is neutered, and is heartworm negative. In other words, he is ready to go! He is waiting for his forever home with a family who loves to go on walks, give him lots of affection, and can play fetch with him. Could that be you?
