Hi guys! My name is Murray. I am a handsome boy with a friendly, affectionate personality, so prepare to fall in love. I'm a 3-year-old, neutered male mutt in need of a home. I weigh 61 lbs. I am a mellow, calm and well-mannered boy. My favorite activities are cuddling, swimming, playing in the yard, cuddling, playing fetch, going for walks and also cuddling. I was a volunteer-favorite at the shelter I came from. Want to know why? Because I walk like a champion on my leash. I do not pull - ever. Even if there is a squirrel! I like to be right with my humans and doing whatever they're doing. Especially if it's watching TV, so I can satisfy my inner couch potato. I do need to be an only dog - I get scared other dogs and cats might take my toys and things that are near and dear to my heart, and so I guard them. I do not have a problem sharing my toys with humans, just other animals. Even though I cannot live with other dogs, I do not mind seeing them on my daily walks and as long as no toys or bones are around, I play with other dogs and have lots of fun. I love children, but my humans will not place me in a home with youngsters due to my unwillingness to share my toys. I am great with adult humans though, because I trust them and they're my friends. If you're looking for a loyal, devoted and loving best friend, I am your man. My friends at Paws for Life say I'm a jackpot, so come meet me and see for yourself. I am sweet as can be and just want a home ... please! Just look at my tubby face! Have your humans call my humans - we can talk over treats and a bowl water. Apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance, one session with a certified behavior trainer and microchip.

Adoption and Foster Care Application

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

Examples:

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
