Murphy is a great guy who just had bad luck. He was in a home that loved him very much, but when he started having skin issues, could not afford the vet bills. When he came back to the shelter, our vets started him on some medication and weekly baths and he is like a different dog! He will need someone to keep up with his skin allergies but as long as it is monitored, he will continue to be a healthy and happy-go-lucky guy! Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
