Murphy is a large golden male. He currently weighs in at 61 pounds but he is a bit underweight.
Murphy is a special boy with some special needs.
Murphy was seized by police as a cruelty and neglect case. And we can surely say that he
was neglected and someone treated him badly. Murphy came to us with a complete circle sore
all around his neck from where the chain link collar had dug into his skin. It was red and nasty.
And his neck was discolored grayish by the cheap chain to which he was tied out with. His
ears had cuts and he had cuts on his legs and mouth.
But the physical heals quickly. What will take longer is the emotional damage. This dog has
been beaten by an adult male person. He is so terrified of men and especially if they stand up
quickly or move their arms certain ways. It’s so sad.
We are working with Murphy on this but whoever adopts him will need to continue working with
He seems fine with cats and dogs his size but we are also working on that with him.
He would love to be in a woman only household! He is really quite sweet.
So, here is a dog that is a bit of a project for just the right person or family.
Murphy is available for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment.
