Murphy is a big puppy who just wants to love you and to be loved! He’s so friendly and gets so excited when he sees people that his entire body wiggles with happiness.

This young boy was a stray before he showed up in a couple’s backyard and they took care of him for a little bit before taking him to one of our shelter partners. He’s very well behaved, incredibly friendly and he knows how to sit and lay down on command already. Such a smarty!


He’s playful but not high-energy and wants to be by your side and keep you company. He will be a great companion for a person or family that enjoys outdoor activities and wants a buddy to take with them on adventures. He has been with us at TVR for a short time, so we will update his bio with more information about his personality and how he gets along with other dogs and cats once we make those introductions.

Murphy is like a real-life teddy bear who will steal your heart and add so much love and joy to your life! If you think you might be a good match for Murphy, head over to our website to fill out an Adoption Application.
