Facts about Murphy
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
I am already neutered.
Woof! My name is Murphy I am a 1 year old Pit Bull that is available for adoption at Helping Hands. I was brought into the shelter by a kind stranger off the streets at the beginning of October. I am ready to be your dog. I really hope you stop in and see me soon. HEIGHT: 19" at the shoulder WEIGHT: 46lbs. HOW MUCH EXERCISE DO I NEED? If you have a physically active lifestyle, I am the perfect dog for you. I have loads of energy and am looking for a family that can use that energy in positive ways. I'll do best in a home that has plenty of room and a fenced yard. Daily exercise and obedience training will help make me a happy, well-mannered dog. DO I HAVE ANY SPECIAL TOYS? Oh yes I love toys! Any toys will be great because I love them all! DO I KNOW ANY TRICKS? I'm not sure that I know any tricks right now. With a little bit of training and patience, you'd be amazed what I can learn. AM I A GOOD INSIDE DOG? I'm looking for a patient family who will teach me to go to the bathroom outside. I would love to live inside with you, though, so we can spend plenty of quality time together. Don't be afraid to crate me when you aren't home. DO I LIKE CATS? I haven't been around cats while here at shelter so ask your adoption counselor to do a cat test to make sure we get along. DO I LIKE CHILDREN? I do encourage you to bring in the whole family to visit to make sure it's a nice match. DO I LIKE OTHER DOGS? I haven't had much of a chance to interact with other dogs while I've been here. Make sure to bring your canine family in with you to meet me to make sure we get along. Thank you for reading about me. I'm an energetic, loving guy who can't wait to show you just how much I have to offer. Please come by soon to see for yourself! I can't wait to meet you. Love Murphy.
