If any dog deserves the title of the sweetest boy, it is Murphy. Murphy came to us as a surrender and has since been working on coming out of his shell. He is very nervous when meeting new people and has been observed low growling and barking at strangers until he realizes there is no threat. Once he has warmed up, he loves being with people and sticks close to you most of the time. You can gain some bonus points from Murphy if you love afternoon naps and cuddles, once you have won him over of course!
Murphy’s energy level is moderate. He loves to go for walks and play with his toys but can also settle on his own and does not need someone to constantly entertain him.
Murphy does like his dog friends but also needs a few moments with them and prefers calmer dogs when being introduced. Murphy has not yet been tested with cats.
Murphy is currently using a slip lead on his walks. He has his good and bad days on the leash, but nothing some training cannot fix! He pulls a bit some days and other days he walks in a nice heel. He can be reactive on leash to other dogs, especially if they are reactive toward him.
Murphy currently knows sit, stay and muzzle. The muzzle command comes in handy during his vet visits as he is not a fan.
Here is what Murphy’s foster home says about him!
“Murphy is looking for a home with someone who has bully breed experience and is willing to continue his training and build his confidence. He needs someone who understands he is not aggressive but just a nervous boy who needs to be properly introduced to new people and animals to set him up for success.”
