Meet Murphy

Murphy came to HART with his sister Marcy (also available for adoption!) from a shelter in May of this year. He is reddish-brown with white stockings and white on his chest and the tip of his tail. He is a Chihuahua and Dachshund mix that the vet estimates is about 2-3 years old. Murphy really loves people (including kids) and will often follow you around when he can. He is a cuddle bug. Kids ranging from 2 -9 often visit the foster home, he is really gentle. Murphy does like other dogs, especially Marcy, regardless of size. He’s been around 10 other dogs of various sizes. He even like cats, only showing mild interest.

Murphy is a confident laid back pup and will play with other dogs or kids if the opportunity is presented. He sleeps through the night. He prefers to sleeps with you and does well through the night. Murphy rides very well in the car, either in a doggie bed or on your lap.

While Murphy would enjoy a fenced yard, he would not need a fenced yard. Murphy walks very nicely, hardly pulls at all.

Murphy is a small to medium sized dog at 14 pounds and looks much like Dachshund (his sister Marcy looks more like a Chihuahua). He goes into the crate easily with the promise of a treat and he is usually quiet through the night. They are both reliably crate trained and working on house training. They would be a great family dogs and great companion dogs.
