About Murphy

If you have an approved application on file and have read this bio, have a structurally fenced yard, and feel you can provide for Murphy's needs, please email Marcie. 

Hi, I’m Murphy the girl dog (if you’re old enough… think of Murphy Brown from TV!)  I’ma sweet and beautiful 4 yr old English cream Golden lady.  I didn’t have the best life before coming to GRRACE but now I have learned to enjoy soft couches and beds and cuddling with humans and am even learning to play with toys!  Before I was GRRACEd and came to live with my foster parents, I was used by an unsavory breeder to produce puppies.  I was fearful of everyone and would just drop flat instead of walking on a leash.  It’s taken awhile but my foster parents have worked hard to gain my trust and have been able to eliminate my need to hide and cower all the time.  Today Im very social but still don’t have much appreciation for a leash.  My foster parents have another rescue dog and we get along great together.  She’s a little dog (just 14#)  but I know to be gentle!  I am still a little bit of a work in progress but if you have love to offer me and patience while I continue to trust, we will be the best of friends forever!  Not to brag, but my foster mom says I am a happy girl who can melt you heart in a moment’s notice so watch out!   Since I don’t much like the leash, I’m going to need a structurally fenced yard to go out to potty.  If you have an approved application on file and are interested in meeting me, please email Marcie.  I am being fostered on the east side of Indianapolis.

If you have an approved application on file and think you might be the family who can love Murphy, please email Marcie.  Please note - no emails will be returned to anyone without an already approved adoption application.  

PLEASE NOTE: Emails to the foster contact listed above will only be answered if you have an APPROVED application on file with GRRACE.

This handsome boy is Rex!  He was very slick in getting Grrace to take him in....he put his ears down in his photos pretending to look like a golden 😂....low and behold when we went to rescue him the ears came up and we soon realized he’s actually a Shepard / golden mix!  He’s one smart boy!  He’s around 3 years old and one super gentle boy. He doesn’t jump to greet you, he approaches slowly and wants you to rub his head!  He is potty trained, only had a couple of accidents the first few days. He's being fostered in a home with two other larger dogs. He weighs around 72 pounds but could stand to add a few more to fill him out. He is very relaxed and laid back. Not a big toy player, but will grab one once in a while and take it to his bed and hold it. He loves belly rubs, and this is one is his favorite past times. He does not jump up on the furniture or bed, seems as though he wasn’t allowed to in his life before GRRACE. He was found as a stray but knows sit and paw and is gentle taking treats. He’s totally content to just be in the same room as his foster family. He is great when left at home alone and not crated, he doesn’t get into anything at all. He’s a super loving boy when you sit on the floor with him and just talk to him and pet him.  He’s one great pup!   If you have an approved adoption application on file and are interested in Rex, let GRRACE know. show less
