I adopted Murphy from the Pasadena Humane Society when I was volunteering at the shelter in 2010. He’s part Westie and part Jack Russell Terrier and the sweetest dog ever. While I was doing my volunteer shift, I kept getting drawn to his kennel because he would always bark if he didn’t see me. When my shift ended, I went out to the car and told my mom she needed to come inside because I found the perfect dog for our family. The second she saw him it was love at first sight and we went inside to apply to adopt him. We got to meet him and the second he came in the room he jumped in my moms lap. A week after we signed the paperwork, we were allowed to bring our little love bug home.
