The Oregon Humane Society’s Dog of the Day is Murphy (shelter #121259). He is one very happy four year old Australian Shepherd mix that is in need of a home where he will receive daily exercise and lots of love. He will need some time to settle into his new home but once he is comfortable you will see how easy going and fun he can be. Murphy loves to play games, retrieve a tennis ball and hang out with his best friends. He will do best in a cat-free home and one with breed experience. He will also need to be the only dog in the home as he does not like to share his toys or food with other dogs. Murphy will need to be provided with daily mental and physical stimulation every day to keep him happy and healthy. He loves children and his new home should be one with dog savvy children that can handle his tendencies to herd. Murphy wants to be part of the family and will and will go with you from room to room. He also loves car rides and will wait patiently as you run errands. You can meet with him at the Oregon Humane Society, 1067 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland 503-285-7722. Visiting hours are 10 am to 7 pm Sunday-Wednesday; and 10 am to 9 pm Thursday-Saturday. Adoptions end one half hour prior to closing.
Murphy's adotpion fee includes neuter, microchip ID, collar and OHS ID Tag, initial vaccines, courtesy veterinarian exam and plenty of post adoption support!
