Murphy [ADOPTED MARCH 9] is a 3 year old, black/white male who was recently neutered, heartworm tested, microchipped and updated on shots. He came to us from a shelter in Illinois. He is very active and friendly. He is field coated so will not require a lot of grooming. He is crate trained and we are evaluating him for his housetraining trustworthiness.

Update from Murphy's New Family: "Just thought I'd let you know that Murphy is settling in nicely. He is no longer nervous about going out in the backyard alone, but does prefer when we can accompany him. The weekend weather has been lovely so we can go for long walks. He still has to learn not to pull so hard, but we are working on it.

He's totally loving. His favorite thing is to cuddle up next to you and be petted. He is beginning to show interest in stuffed toys. Have two baskets of teddy bears, etc. left from my previous pet which I had stored in my utility room. He discovered them while I was folding clothes and one by one he carried them to my husband who was working on the computer. He has brought a couple upstairs, so I think he's beginning to learn to be a kid again. We are a very good match and are enriching each other's lives greatly. Keep up your good work."
