Where Did You Find Your Dog?

We found Murphy (previously Ruffian) on the Facebook page for the Humane Society of Midland County, MI. He was transferred there from a different shelter in Michigan, so we don’t know much about his past. All we know is that his picture grabbed our attention immediately and we had to go meet this little man. When we walked into the shelter, we showed the volunteer at the front desk the picture and asked if this dog was still available. He jumped up saying ”YES! He is! And he’s the coolest little dog here!” The rest is history.

Tell Us About the Moment When You Knew that You Two Were Meant for Each Other.

When the volunteer went to get Murphy out of his cage, he couldn’t even get the leash on because Murphy was so excited to see people and he was licking the man to death. I actually had to take the leash so that we could get it on him! Once we walked out of the Shelter all Murph wanted to do was stay right next to us. This little dog had kisses galore. He couldn’t stop. He hasn’t stoppped since. After we left the shelter it was pretty obvious that we would be bringing Murph into his furever home. It was an instant connection.

How Has Your Hero Changed Your Life?

Murphy has the most personality I’ve ever seen in a dog in my entire life. He’s curious, goofy, and loving. I can’t imagine our home without him now. He makes me laugh every day and his pitty kisses are the best. I’ve never adopted a dog before, but now I’ll never look back. Murphy has brought to me an awareness about pitbull stigmas and stereotypes that I wasn’t very informed about before. He loves every dog and person that he’s ever met and has already changed minds about his breed. I know he’ll continue to be an ambassador, not only for shelter dogs, but for pitbulls as well. A shelter dog was the best decision I’ve ever made, I found my perfect match.
