The Oregon Founding Paws

Dogs should be in engagement photos.

The other dynamic duo that make up the founding paws of PawPrints reside in Southern Oregon. Both contributing pups were adopted from Jackson County Animal Shelter, which is an amazing shelter that has one of the highest adoption rates thanks to their wonderful, dedicated volunteers (and prison inmates)!!

My humans found me on the county website after they decided to adopt a K-9 companion. They discovered my picture, fell in love with my smile, visited the shelter, fell even MORE in love with me, and now I am a spoiled pup with a blog!!

I like doing anything that allows me to be with my people! My favorite activities with them are snowshoeing, swimming in lakes, exploring rivers, and watching them enjoy me chase my tail!

My humans say they adopted me because they wanted Barney to have a friend to play with, I say they adopted me because they needed more CHAOS in their lives!!

I was surrendered to the shelter because of my bad run in with a chicken, that chicken is no longer around so you’ll have to take my word for it that it was the chickens fault I ate it!

The people I call my own discovered me at a pet store where the animal shelter was trying to get people to adopted me (funny side note, they let me hang around the chickens at the pet store and for the record I did not interact with any of them!). Barney and my soon to be Lady Human saw me at the store and LOVED ME (it’s hard not to love me). The next day they visited me at the shelter and my Male Human agreed, I am an amazing dog. So they adopted me!! Thankfully, for me, the male owner has a household rule that nothing can be named after the Royal Family (since the Lady Human really likes the Royal Family); therefore, they changed my name from “Prince Harry” to MURPHY! They adopted be right before St. Patrick’s Day, I had on a shamrock bandanna, and with my red freckles they gave me the name Murphy!



We are two different dogs with two different outtakes on life! We hope you enjoy our blog! In the mean time, GO BRONCOS!
