Murph's Story

What’s sweeter than cotton candy and fluffier too?  That would be adorable Murph!  He might just have the softest fur ever!  And with its beautiful, light color, it almost looks like spun sugar!  Murph is hoping his future family wants to spend plenty of time giving him tons of pets on his super fluffy fur!  Murph came to us from CACC and he had severe glaucoma and was already blind.  Our vets thought it best to remove the eyes to alleviate discomfort.  Don’t think for a moment this dampened Murph’s super sunny disposition!  This boy has a bright personality and is chock full of affection!  He’s been spending time in a foster home and his foster mom reports that he adores scratches under his chin and tummy rubs too!  He will roll right over onto his back so you can pat his belly for a while!  His foster mom says that he made himself right at home and is quickly adjusting.  

Murph is looking for an experienced owner and a home without young children.  Since Murph is blind, he will need a patient owner who can help guide him and keep him safe.  Once he has adjusted to his new home, he will surely be trotting around confidently and strutting his stuff like he owns the place!  He also doesn’t seem to be particularly fond of other dogs and would do best walking on streets with low dog traffic.  This sweet boy adores his humans so much, and loves being on the receiving end of all your cuddles and head scratches!  Murph’s lucky forever family will get to enjoy petting his super soft coat all day long!  And Murph would be delighted with a cozy dog bed to curl up in and maybe a soft blanket on your couch to snuggle into!  These simple pleasures would make him so happy!  Think your life could use a little more sweet in it?  You should meet Murph and check out his amazingly soft coat for yourself!  Email us at adoptions@pawschicago.org to learn more on how you can do just that!
