My story

Miniature Pinscher / Terrier Mix
Age: 3-4 yrs old
Male, neutered
16 lbs

Adoption Fee: $125 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)

Murphy was found abandoned on the streets of Newark. He was in pretty bad shape - neglected, possibly abused, skin issues, matted fur, etc. At the shelter he was shutdown, fearful, untrusting. The Tri-City Fremont Shelter reached out to us for help.

Murphy is an interesting / complex little guy. He is constantly seeking attention from humans (any human that will pet him). At the same time, he will occasionally give signals that would make someone think that he doesn’t want attention. He walks well on a leash. He is unsure about some types of handling, but our experienced foster home has been able to put a harness on him, pick him up, bath him, etc. But it takes time for him to trust someone before he is comfortable.

He does well with other dogs, and he has been in a foster home with cats, birds, chickens, reptiles.

Even though his appearance screams “Yorkie” or “Norfolk Terrier,” his DNA results show mostly Miniature Pinscher and Jack Russell Terrier. We have no idea where his long silky fur came from.

Murphy needs a forever home that will give him the time and patience to continue learning to trust humans again. He needs an experienced, confident adopter that can read his mood and interact with him accordingly.

Please note that we don’t adopt any of our dogs out to homes with children under the age of 13, However, in Murphy’s case - an adult home only.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We specialize in "hard to place dogs" due to their breed, age, minor behavioral or medical conditions. We strive to keep our fees reasonable ($125), and we have sponsorship funds to help with fees, if needed. After the application is approved, the prospective adopter must take the dog on a trial-basis "sleepover" for a few days, before finalizing the adoption. We require landlord approval if the applicant is renting their living space. We only do adoptions in San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding regions. We DO NOT adopt to families with children under the age of 13.

More about this rescue

We specialize in finding homes for dogs where “imperfection” is tolerated in exchange for a lifetime of love and devotion. Our foster dogs have been discarded by the people they once trusted, only to find themselves in a shelter with no other options. We want them to have a second chance to receive the love and care they deserve.
