Hey big beautiful world, Im Murphy! Im what they call 31 Flavors cause theres just a whole lotta good stuff wrapped up in this handsome face! I was born 12/24/20, which means Im still a big puppy full of energy, adventure and curiosity. The best home for me will be with a special person who loves those parts of life too. Knowing that Im a young, active guy, it will makes sense that little kiddos are not the best fit for me. Its not that I dont love them, I just play like a boisterous, young, goofy pup and sometimes I forget that they arent playful puppies too. Im a smart guy and I like learning new tricks. I already know sit, lay down, and settle but I would like a family who can keep on keepin on with me and teach me some additional life skills like how to walk politely on a leash, how to be better focused, and how to stay put! My ideal situation includes outdoor adventures (think hikes/long walks), a nice backyard to run and play, and an adult-only home (for the time being) while I learn how to channel my energy into being the best Murphy I can be!

The suggested adoption donation for Murphy is $315. Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization which means that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE. We are a 100% volunteer rescue committed to giving animals a second chance at life. All donations go toward that mission. Adoption fees are the primary source of funding for the cost of veterinary care for our animals. In 2020 alone, we were able to provide animal Healthcare costing over $241,000 covered mainly through adoption fees.

Information about the adoption process: All adoptions require a completed ADOPTION APPLICATION. Once your application is approved, we will put you in touch with the animals foster to see if you and the pet are a good match. If so, we will arrange a meeting for you and the animal. The adoptions for all of our animals will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person. We do not ship or deliver. 

Please Note: We are a RESCUE, which is different from a shelter. We conduct veterinary and personal reference checks during the application approval process. We always select the right applicant for each animal, based on the animals needs. If you and the animal are not a good match, we will help you select another animal, or we will keep your approved application on file for 6 months.
