Meet Murphy

My name is Murphy and this picture is the "Many Faces of Murphy". I am 7 years old and they say I am a "lab mix". I may be showing my age a little but don't let that deter you - I still love to play, run around and give tons of love. There may be some gray but please don't tell me I am old - I am a young 7 year old.

Unfortunately I am here at the shelter because I decided I wanted to get all of the attention in the home. I am a little pushy when it comes to getting my share of pets - so therefore I want a home where I am the only four legged creature. I am ok with older kids - just not a fan of young ones that want to play rough. I am a gentle soul.

A few of my favorite things: peanut butter, ice cubes, car rides, treats of any kind. walks (but I pull still), people and hard toys. Some of the things I am not good at: having my feet touched, cats and other small animals. I'm not fond of the mailman and bark at him a lot. I do get jealous of other animals if they are getting attention.

I was originally a victim of Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Unfortunately as a result I do have some ongoing skin issues and I take a daily dose of Apoquel - it keeps things under control. They tell me I have a goofy and funny personality.

Help us find Murphy a forever home. This is his second time here at the shelter and we want his next home to be his forever home. His adoption fee is $100.00. He is neutered, current on shots,wormed, heartworm negative and current on preventatives. To apply for Murphy please go to our website at and submit an application.
