found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.
Murphy is a gorgeous male, with a solid black long coat, who is approximately 2 years old. He is a large boy who needs to put on a few pounds. He came from a Sacramento area shelter originally as a stray, so very little is know about his background. He does like human attention and likes to be with his human. He gets along with other calm dogs when introduced properly.
He seems to be house broken and has learned quickly how to use a dog door to let himself outside when needed. He has made no attempts to get on furniture or beds and hasn't chewed on anything except toys given to him. He seemed uncomfortable in the house at first, but has become very happy to be inside. He gets a little anxious when left alone and a crate is recommended until he becomes more comfortable with his new home.
Inside the home, Murphy is really a calm dog and settles down nicely. He is an insecure boy and if you scold him or give him a hard leash correction he shrinks to the ground and sulks away. On leash, Murphy prances like a show dog. He is a little reserved meeting new people until he realizes they are not there to harm him and then he loves the attention. This boy needs a strong human leader to set some boundaries and help him gain his confidence back. Due to him being a little skittish he should not go to a house that has children younger than 10-12 years old.
Thank you for visiting!
