Woman squatting in grass next to water with two golden retrievers


May 2, 2020 – Big, beautiful, and strong Murphy was reluctantly surrendered to AGB by his owner whose health issues prevented her from giving Murphy the attention he needed. He is extremely sweet and loving but was very anxious when came to AGB. His kind fosters have an abundance of patience and helped him settle down before going to his home in Mississippi. His new mom and AGB alum brother have been with him every second during this quarantine period and Murphy knows he is safe and at home. He loves his walks and enjoys his fenced back yard, and he is a happy boy with his new family.

Original Adoption Post

Greetings to you! I’m a bright and bonny lad with the Irish name of Murphy. Now the name Murphy means “strong and superior”. Aye, I am that! And handsome too! I am 15 months old and weigh 91 pounds – a big, healthy boy but still quite the puppy. My owner reluctantly surrendered me because of their handicap and they wanted me to have the best home possible. They described me as “very strong” and “very loving”. I just love people. I am active and playful and I’ve been known to jump a fence or two. I am happy-go-lucky but I do get a little scared of thunder. I’ve just been neutered and I am heart worm negative, vaccinated, and microchipped. I’m house trained too; I’ll let you know I want to go out with a little whine. I could benefit from some training so I could learn to walk beautifully on a leash and respond to some new commands. The folks at AGB tell me they have a family coming to meet me and I could be going home with them because they’ve been waiting for a fellow like me. So wish me luck, please. A little luck of the Irish wouldn’t hurt at all.
