608 Murphy – COMING SOON!

Senior - Male
Adoptable good with childrengood with other dogshouse trained

Murphy is a happy senior citizen weighing about 55 pounds. He was picked up as a stray and ended up in a crowded shelter. Occasionally we are at a shelter evaluating a lab and come across one of these really special dogs that grabs your heart with his soulful eyes and sweet happy face. He is such an easy going boy and good with everyone (except young dogs running him over). We’re still getting to know each other, we will tell you more soon. Unfortunately, no one was interested in this special boy because he’s old (we are all headed in that direction folks) and heartworm positive. He has a month of medication (starting July 1) preparing for treatment, then he gets the first treatment, has 30 days of being a couch potato which will be easy for him. Then, a second treatment and 30 more days of hanging around. He’s such a wonderful easy, go with the flow kind of boy, he’ll be a joy to have. If you are in the greater Sacramento/Lincoln/Northern area and are interested, Murphy can go home on a foster contract. This is a great time to bond with your new dog. We take our dogs to the Redding area for heartworm treatment. Labs 2 Love will cover his heartworm treatments and transporting the dog to and from treatment. Yes, we know he’s not close to being a purebred, but he truly is a really nice boy!
