Meet Murphy

Hi! My name is Murphy, my foster dad calls me Murphy Brown, some people say my name

should be Tiger because of my beautiful coat and some other people have been calling me

Good Boy!

Let me tell you a little bit about myself as there is not much known before I was rescued by

Town and Country, other that I used to break out of my kennel, lived in an apartment and broke

out of the kennel on my way to the rescue. I can't remember if it was from excitement or

anxiety. Anyways, I've been with the rescue for almost 2 years and I had a rough start. Not

many people could interact with me because I didn't know how to properly communicate with

humans and I was too rough with them, I had no leash manners and didn't know how to play.

I've been living with my foster parents for several months while they teach me how to interact

with the world. I've learned so much! I know sit, down, and I am working on my stay and recall. I walk nicely on leash and long line, I can now play fetch with humans and I've even gone shopping with my foster mom.

Oh! Did I say I'm kennel trained now and I completely love it? It's my safe space. I'm also

muzzled trained and have been learning how to play with other dogs while wearing my muzzle.

My foster mom and I have talked a lot about me finding a forever home, I know it's really hard

for her because she loves me very much. I'm her first foster pup and she wants to continue

helping other pups like me so I know I need to move out to leave an open spot for the next

one.

What I'm looking for is a quiet but fun home. I need a strong leader that will be consistent with

my training and gives me plenty of love but also teaches me about rules and boundaries. I need

healthy ways to channel my energy with things like hiking, playing in water and fetch with my

human. I love to chase cats, it's so much fun! I will need a home without those little creatures

though. I haven't been around kids and I'm not sure how I would feel about them. I don't think I

would intentionally hurt a human but I'm afraid I might be a little rough for them.

If you are my person - I'm waiting for you! My foster mom will guide you and continue training

with you to show me how to behave. She is also willing to donate 10 nights of boarding each

year (I know it's her excuse to stay in touch with me)



The adoption fee is $350 and covers age appropriate vaccines, a microchip, a neuter and a home training session.

Applications are typically worked in time stamp order based on date/time of submission. If you have other dogs in your home, they must all meet the potential adoptee. It may save you a trip to bring them with you when you visit, if you are certain you want to adopt a new family member.

*****We are currently operating by appointment only during the social distancing stage of quarantine. If you want to meet this pet, or are interested in adopting, please submit an inquiry or email to tchspapillion@gmail.com.

Someone from the rescue will contact you and/or your family and determine, on a broad level, whether you might be a fit for the animal. If so, they will provide instructions for completing the application. Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted to set up a time to meet at the shelter or the foster home. The introduction between you and the pet will be supervised by one of the dog counselors or the foster. If all goes well, you can adopt during the same visit.

Please be sure to follow us on Facebook to learn more about Town and Country Humane Society and our mission.
