Murphy, bull terrier and Catahoula leopard dog mix
Murphy is a male bull terrier and Catahoula leopard dog mix being kept at Family Dogs New Life Shelter.
Murphy gets along well with other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Murphy will do best in a home without small children. No need to worry: He is already house-trained. Murphy has already had all of his shots, and he is neutered.
From Murphy's current caretaker:
Feeling lonely? Murphy has a remedy for that! He can heal any broken heart with his loyal and loving demeanor and silly antics. Truth is, he will need a little TLC himself; being a sensitive fella, it takes him a little time to trust, and once he does, he is as loyal and protective as they come. Murphy will need plenty of patience, training and socializing, and don’t forget lots of cuddle therapy once he's ready. So, if you’re longing for companionship and feeling an ache deep in your chest, Murphy has just the prescription you need.

From Toby's current caretaker:
Toby is a sweet guy. He is 10+ years old and just six lbs. He loves to be held. Toby also likes to follow you all around and is a bit of an artist at getting through cracks in doors, so he needs someone who will be vigilant at keeping doors closed.
