Tell us about your animal:

We adopted Murphy in September of 2017 from a rescue center (DPS) in Menlo Park. We are a family (3 children who are almost all teens now). Murphy is a shy guy. He is loyal to his family and wants to be near someone at all times. We walk him twice a day for 20-30 minutes minimum and he enjoys sniffing and will try to chase anything in sight- squirrels, cats, etc. He is hit and miss with other dogs; some he greets by sniffing, other dogs, he acts aggressive, although he’s never done any harm (it seems to be his defense mechanism kicking in). But he is not cuddly, nor does he wag his tail frequently. He prefers to sleep on his own bed rather than sit in your lap. We are moving and cannot bring him into the new home for a number of reasons. He would do best in a home where there is someone home most of the time, as he does not like to be outside on his own for too long. Please call me if you would like to learn more about Murphy or if you would like to arrange a time to meet him in person. He is approximately 3 years old.
