Little Murphy is a beautiful purebred Brussels Griffon. He is very affectionate with his chosen person and loves to play with other dogs. He will be in your lap the second you sit down, he is great at cuddling, will follow you everywhere and would love to sleep in bed with you at night. He is a great walking companion, but must always be securely harnessed and either crated or seat belted in a vehicle. If you want an adorable, loving, loyal little Velcro dog, then Murphy might be right for you!

Murphy prefers women, but usually likes gentle, soft spoken men too. He bonds quickly with one person and is wary of everyone else until he gets to know them. He would do best in a quiet home with an experienced pet owner. Since he barks at noises and strangers in your home, he is not a good candidate for apartment life.

Murphy needs a small dog companion in his forever home that will cuddle and play with him when you are busy and he must have a VERY securely fenced yard, as he is a bit of an escape artist. He worries when left alone for more than a couple of hours so needs a dog savvy female person that works from home. Because of his behavior toward other people, taking him to work is not recommended unless he can be safely sequestered away from coworkers and clients. Because of his small size, he will not be placed in a home with large dogs or with children as he may nip.

He weighs just 7.8 lbs and was born on 6/19/10. He is healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, heart worm negative and taking preventative. He is house trained to potty pads and going outside but may mark if he is nervous or upset. A belly band is recommended when you aren’t home. Murphy is being fostered near Nauvoo Illinois and only applications within driving distance will be considered.

We never place our dogs in homes with invisible (electric) fencing and we never ship our dogs in cargo or transport them to adoptive homes. Doggy doors are OK as long as they are secured at night and when you are gone. Murphy is small enough to be carried away by a large hawk, coyote or other predator so should never be outside alone.
