Murphy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Murphy's Story...
I’m one of those super smart, super gentle, super sweet and super loyal pooches…you know, the kind that follow their person and does everything their person asks. I am housebroken, crate trained, I know a couple commands, plus I ride well in the car and play in the water like a champ. I’m mature and still active (but not overly), and I will definitely like to be involved in the family’s daily activities but can be independent if I need to be. I do well with other dogs, have a disdain for cats, but really enjoy children! I’m a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Yellow Labrador Retriever mix with all of the qualities of a wonderful pet…even my house manners are impeccable. I don’t mean to sound overconfident, but you’d be a fool to pass me by!!! 7 years old-78lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Portland Rhodesian Ridgeback/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Labrador Retriever for sale in Portland, or seeking a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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 Rhodesian Ridgeback/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Rhodesian Ridgeback/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
