Murph is a 32 lbs, HW- hound mix who is very shy. He was born to a stray mom as part of a litter of 9. He is the runt of the litter and we brought him to the shelter because his siblings (in foster) had begun to pick on him. He is very scared and lays in a ball in the back of his crate with his head turned away. He needs a special person to step up for him.Intake April 2015. Update: He has been with us over a month now and will now walk very well on a leash and let us pet him. He is not eager for attention but will sometimes approach his kennel gate when we arrive.
Update from Foster Mom:
My circle of insecurities is getting smaller every day. I am not a fan of males, but I am kinda growing fond of my foster dad. I am most comfortable on my mama's bed in a smaller room where there is less stimulation. I take treats and love when I am on her bed and will snuggle up to her. Out of the bedroom is a different story. I am skittish but coming around. I love to play outside with all my four-legged friends and my new toys! All in all I am a good courageous boy learning to love humans!
Due to Ruger's circumstances, he is currently shy around new humans and still learning to trust. Due to that fact, he is not available for adoption. BUT - we are accepting applications and if your application seems like the perfect fit to ensure Ruger will still continue to trust and learn we will work with you and the Foster Family to ensure an easy transtition.
The adoption fee for Ruger is $250.00. He will come to you fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped.

Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.
