I am 1 year old. I AM IN FOSTER CARE! PLEASE FILL OUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE ME! Murphy is an athletic dog who would do best in an active, structured, adult-only home with another dog. Murphy loves to go on walks, play with other dogs, and at the end of the day, snuggle you on the couch. He loves every toy he has ever seen, and is a champion at de-stuffing his stuffed animals! Murphy has been in training to learn how to interact appropriately with people as he was showing some fear aggression when introduced to new situations and people. Murphy has made significant improvements. Murphy tends to bond very closely with his people, and can become protective so continued training and/or an experienced dog owner is a must. Given his athleticism, Murphy would possibly do well at agility training or scent work. Murphy does have a cherry-eye which the vet says currently causes him no discomfort and can be fixed surgically in the future if desired. Murphy is crate trained, knows how to heel, sit, lay down, and is house broken. He currently lives with a dog and two cats, and behaves well with all of them. Good with other dogs. All dogs are microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm tested and started on Heartgard Plus & Frontline Plus. We do not have a history on most of the animals up for adoption since we rescue them Animal Control and they are usually labeled as strays. We can only tell you their behavior since they have been with us. We do not know the specific breeds of each dog. Once again, because they are rescued we have to guess as to what they MAY be a mix of.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Huntley Basset Hound/Pug dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Pug for sale in Huntley, or seeking a Basset Hound/Pug dog from a breeder in Huntley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Huntley already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Huntley breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Basset Hound/Pug breeders who help with Basset Hound/Pug rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Huntley paves the way for another one to be saved.
