Facts about Murphy

Murphy is beagle mix who is about 5*6 years old and weighs 23 pounds. Murphy is a sweet, lovable boy who bonds closely with his trusted person. Murphy is a special needs dog due to his fearful nature. Murphy likes to keep his personal space and doesn't like when that space bubble is suddenly interrupted. He can NOT go to a home with children or be around any children. We will require an adopter who has experience dealing with dogs and training with confidence building in fearful dogs or have a commitment to be willing to learn. His adopter will need to commit to taking him to required (sponsored) training classes to set him up for success. Murphy is currently taking anti-anxiety medication.

Once you gain Murphy's trust he is a super sweet, shy boy who is gentle and loving. His ideal adopter will be his advocate and work with him on building his confidence. He loves to snuggle, receive pets and give little kisses. Murphy does have a heart murmur, but that doesn't affect him at all. At the current time the vets say he does not need any treatment. Murphy can be selective about his dog friends and prefers low key dogs who don't pay him much attention. We will only place Murphy in an all adult household. Murphy's adoption fee of $250 goes towards covering his vetting- which includes neuter, vaccinations, microchip, heartworm test, fecal test, xrays, echocardiogram, and behavioral evaluation.

If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at under the Adoption Process tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (as appropriate), dewormed, fecal tested, and microchipped.

About Perfect Pooches Adoption Agency

About Our Rescue Group...

A rescue organization dedicated to helping you locate and adopt your "perfect" pooch.
No one, or nothing, is perfect....this includes dogs, but we firmly believe that there is a "perfect" dog for everyone. This doesn't mean our dogs will not have accidents in the house, or bark at times you don't want them to, or chew on your good shoes. They are dogs and they will require training and structure, but their flaws make them truly unique, beautiful, and "perfect" for the right family.

Perfect Pooches Adoption Agency (PPAA) is dedicated to working with each family to ensure we try to find a dog that will be a match with your lifestyle, needs, and wants. If we do not currently have a dog that is a match we will do our best to help approved adopters locate a dog that would be a better fit.

Our pooches are rescue dogs that deserve a second chance. Please consider opening your heart and home to a new companion today!
