Murphy's Story...
Meet Murphy!

He is a 1 year Basenji mix. Murphy suffers from cerebellar hypoplasia and needs extra attention and care. Cerebellar hypoplasia means Murphy’s brain did not develop completely. This has affected his balance leading to some clumsiness while walking or standing. He unable to judge distance
and has disequilibrium.

He falls down at times. He is best in a home with a stay at home parent who is willing to give him the extra patience and care that he needs. Murphy is sweet and gentle and is looking for a special home.

He is up to date on all vaccines and preventative medicines. Please consider adopting or fostering Murphy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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