The moment we pulled Murphy from an Alabama shelter, we knew he was a very special boy. Ever since he arrived to DC area, he has been nothing but a gentle, loving, affectionate, loyal, mellow and sweet giant. He loves everyone he meets and loves to stand up on his back legs, put his giant paws on your shoulders and lean in for a big Murphy hug.

Murphy is this sweet despite the fact that he has been in great pain. Some horrible person repeatedly shot Murphy with pellet gun about a year ago and left him with hundreds of pellets embedded in his jaw and his nose area. CT scan revealed he was shot twice, entry wounds between eyes, and lower mandible of R jaw, effectively blowing out large and small portions of bone in the nasal cavity and lower jaw. One of the pellets was obstructing his breathing and he had to be rushed to an emergency vet, who said that Murphy would require a very expensive surgery a week later.

K-9 Lifesavers have partnered up to pay for his expensive medical bills and Murphy is on his slow way to recovery. He has been nothing but perfect through the whole ordeal despite also being about 30 pounds undernourished, dealing with severe eye and skin infections in addition to the pellets embedded into his face and jaw. He is expected to live normal life but will have to be on steroids for the rest of it to manage the pellets that cannot be removed from his face.

K-9 Lifesavers is a non-profit dog rescue and that is where YOU can help. Please help us recover the cost of Murphy's surgery so we can save and help even more doggies as wonderful as Murphy who also deserve a second chance. Every little bit counts, and Murphy along with the other dogs in our rescue, as great as him, are very grateful for even the smallest contribution.

Thank you,

Murphy and All the Dogs in the Shelters who Need YOUR Help
