This week we met Murphy the dog...

Here's some information on Murphy from the Humane Society of Ocean City...

"Murphy is a 4 year old laid back catahoula mix. The catahoula leopard dog is an American dog breed named after Catahoula Parish, Louisiana.

He came into our shelter in July and was adopted out for a short time.It didn’t work out so he was brought back to us.

Murphy loves walks and would really love a couch to lay on and watch TV. He needs a home without any dogs. His previous home had a dog that used to fight with him so he’s a bit defensive now. Children make him uncomfortable so he will need an adult only home."

If you would like to visit Murphy or need more information about any animal up for adoption at The Humane Society of Ocean City, call 609-398-9500 or stop in any day between 11a-3p.
