Murphy's Story...
Allow me to introduce to you this handsome fella going by the name of Murphy. He’s a young (1-2 yr old) pitbull mix with a whole lot of love to give! Murphy enjoys going for walks and is excellent walking with a harness as he barely pulls. He’s a super friendly boy and loves to say hello to everyone that walks by (both canine and human). Murphy knows his basic commands like “sit,” “down,” “look,” and is quickly learning more advanced commands such as “drop it,” “leave it,” “look,” and and “find it.” Murphy is treat-motivated which makes it easy to teach him new things. He will also take the treats from your hand very gently. He loves a game of fetch with a tennis ball to burn off some energy. Murphy will gladly go over to you for some relaxing snuggle time on your lap if invited! Murphy has done really well with car rides, outings to the park, and even seems to be housebroken. What a catch!

Don’t miss the opportunity to adopt Murphy as your new family member; you will not regret it!
If you have any resident dogs or children under 10, please bring them in to meet Murphy to ensure it is a great match. Contact his Pen Pal for any additional questions: colkane77@aol.com

Act quickly to adopt Murphy. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Philadelphia Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
