Meet the indomitable Murphy. He started life in the worst way possible: abused, starved and abandoned on the streets of Manhattan. When Animal Control picked him up he weighed less than 30 pounds.

I fought and fought to rescue this sweet boy and I’ve never (well almost never) regretted it for a minute.

His biggest joy in life is running and playing — look at those long legs.  And in case you’re interested, he is a Golden Retriever, a “field” or “hunting” Golden and he’s supposed to be tall, leggy and lean.
