Murphy's Story...
If you would like more information about Murphy or are interested in adopting her, please send an email to andyjberman@gmail

I found this very loving and sweet dog about a month ago on the street eating out of a dumpster. She looked very hungry and dirty. She looked at me with her rare and beautiful eyes, one blue and one brown, and I could not resist. She started licking me and when I opened my car door, she jumped right in. On the way home, she laid on my lap. Murphy is on the large side, so I was amused that she thought she was a lap dog. Sadly, my land lord will not allow me to keep her so I'm trying to find her a good home. All the shelters that are taking dogs are kill shelters and I would hate to have her put down. Her personality is too awesome and she is so sweet. If you are looking for a young dog to light up your life, one that gets along with other dogs and with children, you need to meet Murphy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Houston Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in Houston, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 Border Collie breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
