Hi folks, it is me Murphy, and I am looking for a family. I was given to the shelter by my old family; they could not care for me any longer. Shelter life is a bit of a shock for me, there are quite a few animals here. I get along with dogs but have never lived with cats. I really am a people pooch; I love to be with them. I suppose that is because I am part Lab and they are known as people pleasers and part Australian Cattle dog; they are known for their intelligence. So I guess I am a people pleasing brainiac! You should know I am neutered and house trained too. I wouldn’t mind if my new family has kids because I like them. I just really want to leave the shelter and get on with life because to be honest I am not happy unless I am part of a family. A family can be just you and me or you, me, the spouse and kids. Is there room for one more at your house?
I had a very scary experience, I was abandoned. I waited and waited for them to come back for me and was shocked that they just left me in a hot trailer like an old piece of furniture. As you can imagine, I was scared, hungry and most of all sad. I am putting that experience behind me and am hopeful to find someone that will never leave me or forget about me. I am friendly with other cats and dogs as well. Kids are fine too. The staff here says I am lovable and I guess I am. I am happiest when I have a person or family to look after. I take my role as a family member seriously and will do my best to protect and love you; can anyone do the same for me? Please don’t make me wait much longer, I just want to go home...with you!
