Hello there, I'm Murdoch. I'm happy to know that my cute little face was enough for you to click to find out more about me and how to make me yours forever!

So, what do you want to know about me? I'm around 1.5 years old, and weigh about 40 lbs, and I am some type of shepherd mix. I like long walks in the park, biscuits, and endless toys to play with because I have LOTS of energy. I would also not be opposed to being showered with belly rubs. Doesn't that sound great? I also love hanging out and playing with other pups, and would love to meet some of your neighbors, family, or friends! I also love children and love being able to play with them.

I have not yet been tested with cats, but my foster mom has noted that I do have prey drive and will try to play with cats, even if they don't like it.  I would also would be really happy to be taken to obedience classes so I can learn to be the best boy! Like most shelter dogs, I may need a refresher on house training, but I am likely crate trained. 

The adoption fee for Murdoch is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Kyndra at

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!
