This cute guy is having a blast now that he’s not a stray in Memphis roaming around a highway where his rescuer and foster mom found him injured after an ice storm.

Murphy is new to us but his foster mom says he has integrated wonderfully into her home with MANY dogs - zero issues. He has a new best friend as you can see in one of the pics - Murphy was recovering from neuter surgery and this guy came over to hang with him.

We will learn more about Murphy as we go along but he’s a great size at only 46 pounds. He is house trained and walks well on a leash. His is not used to a crate as he has a room to be in when no one is home with him and he is not destructive.

More to come but if you can’t forge this face, fill out an application and we will get more info.

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
