Introducing... Murphy! 

Murphy's Story:

Murphy was orignally saved from a public kill shelter in Romania. He was a direct adoption meaning that he went straight into a home and didn't have to come into a rescue. The home sadly didn't work out and after 2 years, the adopters wanted to give him up. This is where we stepped in as rescue back up for the charity that brought him over.

Poor Murphy's skin was in awful condition when he arrived at Oakwood Dog Rescue and he was morbidly obese. We started him on skin treatment immediately and put him onto a healthy and strict diet. Murphy is now looking and feeling SO much better, he has now lost 10.1kg and is at a perfect size. He really now is such a happy and healthy boy.

About Murphy:

Murphy loves nothing more than to carry his stuffed toys around with him everywhere he goes and having lots of loves and fusses from anyone that will give them to him.
