Jess and Ross live in Chicago and adopted Murphy when he was just three months old. He is a Border Collie/Retriever mix (probably mixed with some other stuff too).

Ross’ cousin’s girlfriend adopted Murphy from the Minnesota Humane Society. A few weeks later, she made the decision to move across the country and didn’t think it was what was best for Murphy.

Lucky for Jess and Ross, they had been looking to rescue a puppy and fell instantly in love with Murphy. Jess drove eight hours from Chicago to Minneapolis to pick him up and the rest is history!

He is the best thing that’s ever happened to his forever parents! He is a sweet, affectionate, trouble-making goofball and he loves playing with his sister, Jojo the cat!
