Sometimes a dog doesn’t need much more than a loving lap to call their own. Meet Murphy. Just a handful at a little under 5 lbs, this gentleman will win your heart with his quiet demeanor. He may need some time to warm up to unfamiliar faces but once he knows you, he will crawl right up into your lap and be your best friend.

This sensitive guy is looking for a patient, loving adopter who will give him the time to open up and adjust to a new home. He definitely seeks out comfort and really likes his comfy bed and crate. Although he doesn’t seem to be a big fan of toys – especially those squeakers…much too loud for his liking…but he does perk up when a tasty treat comes his way. Perhaps sharing a plate of cheese and crackers together as you watched a movie or a sunset is in your future? Murphy’s needs are simple and uncomplicated.  Quite honestly, all he needs is you.

Our shelter is OPEN for visitors (as of 6/8/20) and you are welcome to come meet him! You’re also welcome to fill out an application or email adoption@rispca.com with any questions about our adoption process. Thank-you!
