Murphy is a 1yr old, unaltered male, Golden Retriever and Poodle mix. He is a sweet Doodlebug! Murphy is a large dog with tall legs. He is ready to go to some basic training classes to learn his manners. Murphy has a high energy level and is ready for playtime. He walks on leash but needs reminders not to pull. He gets excited quick, so it is best you interact calmly with him and remind him to sit for attention. He uses his paws, so he needs reminders for “Four-on-the-floor”. Murphy is smart and really likes to hear “Good Boy”. He is very loyal and will make someone a wonderful dog if you just remind him of his manners and give him daily exercise. We do not know how Murphy interacts with other dogs yet. If you have another dog at home, it would be best to bring them by during our animal viewing hours below to see if their playstyles match well. Murphy will sit and come to you for a treat. He is working on stay and leave it. He likes to chase sticks or balls. He is used to waiting at home in his crate when you leave home. He does well waiting to go potty until taken outside if you give him multiple potty breaks throughout the day. Murphy gets an upset stomach with certain foods and he needs you to watch what he eats.

To start the adoption process for this pet, visit the shelter during our animal viewing hours. After having a visit with them, you can fill out an adoption application at our facility.
