Murphy is a Boxer/Great Dane mix who was abandoned, and left for dead, in the Florida Everglades. His previous owner decided to use Murphy as a "bait" dog and to ensure that he didn't leave a mark on their prize fighters, they ripped out most of Murphy's teeth. Yep, the little guy only has a couple of chompers so his tongue hangs out of the side of his mouth.
Thank god there are angels out there like Amy and her rescue group 100+ Abandoned Dogs of The Everglades. They work tirelessly to rescue as many of the HUNDREDS of dogs abandoned out in the Everglades every weekend. The animals they rescue are the true definition of a rescue. These poor animals are hungry, tired and scared out there all alone.
Murphy has completely changed our life and has made such amazing strides in his health. He loves his new brother and sister and it feels like he's been a part of our family forever. We promised him that even though we can't fit any more of his friends in our house, we will do everything we can to help 100+ Abandoned Dogs of The Everglades bring home every last dog out there. So this fundraiser is for an amazing local charity that helped Murphy find his way into our life and "Murphy's Paw" is our way to help this amazing group continue their work!
Every dollar truly helps.
