Murphy ~ in Northern California

Looking for a Home

Here's what Murphy's foster mom says about him..."Murphy is very special. He is not needy but loves attention. He loves to have his head kissed and leans into you when he gets kisses, yet he is not a kisser himself. His favorite game is fetch and you will get tired before he does. He goes to bed at night in my room (each dog has a bed) but has learned like the soon as Mom goes to sleep we can get into bed with her. He loves his tummy rubbed and is usually sitting beside me."

"I understand that he gets along with cats. Even though I do not have cats, I have 4 dogs. A Silky, Yorkie, Doxie,(females) and a Maltese mix (male).He and my Silky have formed a common bond. I think it is because they both know that they are far superior than the others ;-) But he does not really acknowledge the other dogs. He loves to go "Bye Bye. Murphy rides well in the car, knows basic commands and is housetrained. He lets you know when he wants to go out. I do have a doggie door but he has not used it."

Murphy is an older silky gentleman who was rescued from a shelter where he was about to be put to sleep. He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. He is a lovely little fellow who needs a home of his very own. His new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him, and there will be an adoption fee or donation. Murphy is in northern California at this time and a local placement is preferred but not required.

If you have room in your home and heart for Murphy, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email Laura at and let her know you are interested in Murphy. Laura will be working with Murphy's foster mom to find his new family.
