Murphy is a very nice boy in need of a home. He was picked up by the dog police after a few weeks of loitering at a convenience store, and no doubt forced to rummage in the dumpsters for food. He was listed as a chow mix by Little Rock Animal Services, and almost didn't make it out alive. Lucky for Murphy, a rescuer felt that this dog needed to live. Now in a foster home, Murphy has been tagged as a Keeshond mix (he could also be a member of the rare Standard Pomeranian breed--a breed found only in Arkansas, seen wandering the streets and impounded at animal shelters) and is settling right into the "good life." He likes to play with stuffed toys (or more accurately, he likes to tear them up!) and enjoys playing with other dogs. He is still a little unsure about the leash, but likes his morning and evening walks in the neighborhood. Murphy has been spotted climbing a 4 1/2 foot chain link fence, so a privacy fence, or a 6-foot chain link is a must to keep Murphy safe. Murphy is very friendly, and did we mention he knows how to sit, LOVES to shake hands, and enjoys belly rubs?
