Foster Update 5/24/2019:
Murphy is just the happiest dog!  Seriously, not just a tail wagger, which he is,  but genuinely happy and content.  He has been really good in the house, has never chewed on anything except dog toys, and is fully housebroken.  He likes to chase our cat and fortunately our cat does not mind being out side and is very quick at climbing a wood fence.  He minds pretty well, but does need some leash work.  He can give sweet kisses but won’t lick you to death, and loves to be loved on.  He would be a great addition to any household looking for a happy pup.

Intake Report 4/16/2019:
Murphy was adopted 4 years ago by a young couple who love him dearly; however, since that time they have added a toddler and a new baby to their household.  Murphy did fine with the toddler, but with the addition of the baby and more stress in the home, he was not doing well.   He was definitely reacting to the stress level and because he was his mama’s baby and she was busy with two little ones, he didn’t get the exercise nor attention that he needed.   He needs to be in a home with a person who will let him know that they are in charge and give him structure and most importantly exercise.  He is a good boy and truly wants to please.  He can be a little timid with new people but warms up quickly once he knows it’s OK.  This boy needs a chance for love and to now be moved again.  We think a home with older children or even not children would be best.
