Murphy's Info...

I am already neutered and good with dogs.

Murphy's Story...
Murphy is a gorgeous, albeit thin, red-nosed Pit Bull Terrier/mix. He has a beautiful red coat with bright white markings on his face and legs, and an inquisitive, intelligent look in his eyes. Friendly and easily handled, he is around 2 years old and maybe 40 pounds, but definitely needs to put on some weight. He has gotten along fine with the other dogs he has met.

An adoption fee may be required which helps cover some of the care and veterinary services provided, including spay for females, neuter for males, vaccinations, de-worming and heartworm testing when age appropriate.

This dog is housed at the Franklin County Small Animal Control shelter. The Humane Society graciously allows the shelter dogs to be posted under their account, but they have no direct knowledge and can answer no questions about the dogs housed there. Please use the contact email address provided for any questions.

Contact sylviaam4@aol.com with any questions. We use the application available through the Franklin County Humane Society to help make a good forever home match.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Metamora Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer for sale in Metamora, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in Metamora.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Metamora already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Metamora breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Metamora paves the way for another one to be saved.
