Murphy 🐶

  • Animal ID#: A298068
  • Dog Name: Murphy
  • Dog Sex: Neutered Male
  • Approximate Age: 3 years
  • Total rock star alert! This beyond-gorgeous dude is the complete package! He is gentle and mannerly and affectionate! He deserves a committed home where he is well cared for as his previous family was unable to properly care for him. Despite being underweight and having ears and skin in poor condition, this boy is absolutely lovely! He participates in shelter playgroups with playful dogs,. We suspect he would be OK with children. He’s so fab!!!

Meeting Dogs at the Stockton Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
