Murphy is an adorable adolescent pup with a love of affection that squishes your heart and a silly mischievious streak you can’t help but laugh at. He’s smart boy with all the potential in the world to make someone an incredible companion and best friend.
Murphy is also a sensitive guy who was having an incredibly hard time living in a shelter setting. Thanks to one of our wonderful behavioral foster homes, Murphy was able to get out of the shelter and to receive the support he needed in a much calmer setting. This boy with the irresistable grin is now ready to move from foster to forever home!
You see, as much as Murphy is a big, silly, gangly adolescent pup, he’s also a sensitive guy. He doesn’t handle the noise or the constant traffic of both people and other dogs that life in a shelter brings very well. He couldnt seem to get a good night’s sleep or a moment to just relax and take a deep breath so he was constantly feeling stressed out and amped up and a little bit on edge.
But Murphy is thriving in a home setting, where it’s quiet when it’s time to relax and where he has people willing to be silly with him at play time, give him plenty of cuddles and affection (his very favorite thing), and to work with him on training that includes socialization and confidence building. All he needs now is an adopter to fall in love with his sweet face and his silliness and give him that home setting for keeps.
Murphy was rescued from the Bastrop Shelter by APA! during the wildfires. Before that, he was picked up as a stray. We’re not sure if that experience has anything to do with this sweet guy’s aversion to the shelter environment but we do know he’s been waiting a long time for a home of his own.
Murphy comes with a training scholarship and a giant fan club who all believe in him. His sweet nature has stolen a lot of hearts and we think this dog is ready to step into a future where he’ll be more awesome and relaxed each day and keep his adopter forever entertained with his goofy antics. He loves people and does well with other dogs like his foster sister, Maddie.
