Dog Profile



Ref: 220/16

2 years 1 months (Approx.)

Dog · Staffie · Brindle with white



Murphy is very people focused! He loves to be made a fuss of and as lived with children at one stage in his life who he got on well with. Murphy is house trained, and good in the car. This energetic youngster could do with some more training when out for walks as he doesn't have much recall training. Murphy is sociable with other dogs but may be a bit full on for some smaller dogs. He loves his home comforts and is very affectionate!


Due to ill health within the family, Murphy's owners could no longer commit to looking after him. He was adopted from the centre 6 months ago but unfortunately he got hold of a lamb and has been brought back for rehoming.

Re-homing Criteria

An active owner who is able to give him the exercise he requires. He needs a home there he will not come into contact with livestock, especially sheep!
