Hi, my name is Murphy! I'm a Bluetick Coonhound/German Shorthaired mix. I have been surrendered 4 times when I was a pup, before I was adopted for 4 years and have now been surrendered again due to them moving. Unfortunately over those 4 years I have gained a lot of weight, atleast 40 LBS. I really need to lose at least 30 pounds, hunting dogs like the breeds I'm mixed with are supposed to be tall and lean. It could also really effect me health-wise in the future if I don't lose the weight I need to lose...

Due to this, I need a really ACTIVE family! I will require a fenced backyard, please. I love to play in water, and outside in general! I do need to be supervised while I am outside. I also do like to try to chase dogs while I am on a leash, so a strong handler and a harness would be best for me. I love just about everyone, but please remember it's a requirement that everyone in the household comes to meet me before I get to go home with you. This includes children and any dogs living in the home. I am a kids years 12 and up home only.

My adoption fee is $150+tax which includes my microchip, my first round of vaccines, and my cute, silly face. I'm already neutered too!
All Pennington County residents must also pay an additional $8 licensing fee at time of adoption. Happy adopting!
