Murphy is a wonderful dog! He is 2 1/2 years old and is happy and energetic, but calms down quickly and easily and is doing very well learning to walk on a leash.
Murphy did not grow up in a loving home and gets scared easily. He loves other dogs, in fact, they seem to make him feel more confident.
Murphy is shy when meeting new people and will take some time to learn to love his new family. He will need a lot of attention and patience so that he can learn to love and be loved.
Murphy will do much better with quiet, indoor people than with an active outdoor family.
Given patience and love we feel certain that Murphy will become a loving and loyal companion.
It may take a little time, but will be worth it!
