Meet Murphy

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice.
Murphy is a survivor........a tiny little 9 pound old guy was dumped in the country. His short little legs carried him to a farm house inhabited by a Good Samaritan. He was so covered with filth that it was impossible to tell whether he was male or female, but compassion ruled, and she put him in a safe place and called the TLC. First stop was the vet's office where once again compassion ruled. The caring vet tech bathed him and cleaned him up...yes, he was a boy... Medical exam showed that for an old guy, he was basically healthy.....except he was totally deaf, and had limited vision because of cataracts. There was no adjustment period for Murphy at the TLC.....he was obviously .thrilled by a warm place to stay, cozy bed, and good food. He quickly learned to find his way around his area, and soon wanted to socialize with the other small dogs. What a joyful fellow he is......gentle and quiet....certainly not a show dog but his inner beauty shines brightly. When we discovered he was a puppy mill breeder who was deemed no longer useful, so was dumped. we understood why there were bite scars all over his body....This was.probably the first time in his life that he enjoyed safety and freedom... Murphy is a love..... and although he is an old guy with special needs, he would be an awesome addition for any one wanting a bundle of love. .
