Hello there. My name is Murphy and I am an 8 ½ year old Terrier mix. The volunteers here at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter think that I might have some Beagle in me, but hey, no one really knows for sure. I have this great brown/tan coloring, and some seriously soulful eyes. I know what you are thinking…hmmmm, 8 ½…too old. Well, I am here to tell you that I am an active senior, and should not be overlooked. I am a wiggly, happy, social boy who does well with other small dogs. I really enjoy fetching tennis balls! I have met many children since I've been here, and they all seem to like my style. If I had a fault, I guess it would be that I really am not interested in living with a cat. To each his own…that is what I always say!
Now, look at my pictures again…do you see that smile?! I have the best smile on the planet. I share it with everyone. I am so outgoing and friendly. Oh gosh, there I go again, trying to sell myself. I should not have to, really, because I am truly amazing. I will sit with you and watch your favorite shows. I will lovingly accept belly rubs. I am low maintenance too. I am not a real toy guy, so you will not find them scattered around the house. I am just a soft, lovable dog in the prime of his life.
The volunteers tell me that I am neutered (geez), micro-chipped and up to date on my shots. I am crate trained and house trained as well. It really does not get any better than this. Come down and take me for a walk...I promise not to disappoint.
