Murphy aka Hercules 40631

murphy aka hercules

This handsome 3 year old hunk is Murphy (affectionately known as Hercules). Hercules didn't have the best start in life, he came to us with a nasty embedded collar, a prong collar none the less.  He was scared when he first arrived, rightfully so.  Our awesome ACO Adam made it his mission to work with this dog, to gain his trust.  Hercules spent some time in our medical department where we cleaned up his wounds and neutered him, while Adam worked to help him trust others.  We promise you Hercules, not all people are bad, we will make sure you find an amazing home.  To say this dog has made a complete 180 is an understatement.  He attended his first adoption event yesterday, where he was a huge hit.  Hercules is a big boy, strong on leash, but a complete mush.  He passed his evaluation with flying colors and did amazing with other dogs.  Stop by to meet Hercules, we dare you not to fall in love.  We are happy Hercules came to us, we are happy to be a pit stop on the way to this amazing boy's second chance at happiness, Hercules truly deserves it.
