Dogs Needing Homes


Breed: Italian Greyhound

Age: Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Description: Murphy is a 6 year old Italian Greyhound. He is a very loving and sweet dog that likes to be by your side and sit next to you on the couch. He loves to run so would do great if he had a yard, but he also does well just hanging out with us at our apartment. Murphy has grown up with little kids so would do fine with children of all ages. He also has grown up with other dogs so would be fine with other dogs around. He is playful at times but most often just wants to hang out so would also be okay in a family without dogs. Being an Italian Greyhound, he is very lean and does not leave hair around the house. He marks a bit in our apartment, but is working on kicking that habit. Murphy is looking for a forever home with lots of love.

Murphy is a 6 year old Italian Greyhound. He is playful and likes other dogs and has lived with children.Murphy's thyroid levels were quite low when we brought him to the vet so they have him on 0.1 mg of Throzine 2 times per day. The cost for these meds would be about $30.60 for a 3 month supply of medication if prices stay the same as they are now. He will also need his thyroid levels checked at 6 month intervals. The cost for the blood test is about $42. every 6 months. He is neutered, up to date on shots, heart worm negative, on heart worm preventative meds, de-wormed, just had a dental and is micro-chipped. His adoption fee is $350.
