About Murphy

Adoption Fee: $450.00
Jack Russell / Australian Cattle Dog
Age: Young Puppy
Sex: Male

This little boy is a very special case for us! I would like you all to meet Murphy! He is now a 5 month old Jack Russell Heeler mix. He was found half starved to death, covered in mange and had a serious injury to his back leg. He has come so far in the last few months and is finally ready to be adopted. We have included his before and after pictures so that you can see just how far he has come. As you can see all his hair has grown back and he had extensive surgery to his back leg where we removed the broken bone and rebuilt his hip joint. He is now up and about and even running. He has made a miraculous recovery. He still has a little bit of a limp, but the doctors are convinced with time it will go away and he will make a full recovery! He loves people and is very sweet and gentle. He loves to play and we expect him to have no issues as he ages. He loves to play fetch, specifically! It is his favorite past time and he is great at it. You can see a video of him playing fetch on our facebook page! He loves children and dogs and people too. He doesn't mind kitties and is friends with everyone he meets! He is currently located down South at our sister shelters and available for pre-adoption. We do transports to NJ once a month. He can't wait to find his forever home!
