Dog Story: My name is Murphy and I will turn 2 years old in April. I am a very, very handsome and funny boy, still a puppy who likes to play. I like my foster home because there are two other Brittanys (and The Lady is OK, too). They have been showing me the ropes. My brother and I came to ABR after being dropped off at a shelter. We were left on our own for 18 months with very little human contact; it was just my brother and me. ABR quickly separated us and I have been adjusting to life in a home. I get 2 meals a day, treats, a lot of affection and plenty of playtime. I have made enormous progress! I come to my name (most of the time) and I enjoy daycare, dog parks, rides in the car, long walks, running in the yard and lounging around the house. I am not destructive or aggressive and I am potty-trained. I like lots of attention right now but The Lady thinks I will become a typical puppy with continued love and training. I need to find a family who is patient. I still am learning to adapt to structure and a home with rules. I need someone who can train me starting with basic commands. I still have trouble fully trusting The Lady but she keeps trying. I think I would do well in a house with another dog; however, younger children may slow my progress. Murphy is neutered, utd on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative. If you’d like to share your love and life with this sweet boy, patiently helping him become all that he has the potential to be, please complete an adoption application and mention Murphy-5726.
