8 Year Old Male

Hi, my name is Murphy and I am getting treated for Heartworm.  I still have more treatments ahead of me, but I am a happy boy in my foster home.  I have a lot of weight to lose and have already lost 13 pounds, but have a lot to go.  I will need someone committed to helping me continue to lose my extra pounds.  I am not happy with other dogs and would prefer to be on my own in my new home.  If you are willing to continue my heartworm treatment and adopt me, please contact the Adoption Coordinator.

Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
