    Meet Murphy. He is a 2-3 year old mixed breed dog that weighs in at 38 pounds. He is possibly a mix of Schnauzer, Terrier, or Cocker Spaniel, whatever it is = Cute! Despite his good looks, Murphy comes with an incredible story to share. He came to Pawswap of Greater Lafayette after being a stray in a nearby county for 7 months. Many people left food out for him and winced when he would cross highways and dart around in the fields running from everyone through the entire winter months. He was first spotted with a leash and collar, but eventually he was seen without it. Once some concerned people went online to talk about this pitiful pup ... (Read More)who was full of mats and scared of storms, we heard the news and found a lovely couple willing to help. We brought them a humane live trap to set for him. They had seen this guy morning and night nearly every day and provided food for him. Once the trap was set, this guy, now known as Murphy, was caught. He was brought to the foster's house to re-enter living life as a normal dog. The second picture is the 'before' picture prior to his shave. He will eventually turn back into a 'scruffy' cute pup. Murphy visited the vet the very next day and was made sleepy so the mats could be shaved out of his fur. He was covered in ticks, approximately 50 were removed. Murphy was given shots and was heartworm tested. Murphy tested positive for Lyme Disease, which surprised no one. He will be starting an antibiotic very soon. Murphy is neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots, and heartworm negative. Murphy seems to be tolerant of other dogs as long as they are not in his face. He is comfortable and OK co-existing, but he prefers not to be too bothered. He seems interested in cats, and would likely do fine. Murphy wags at children during his walks. We would recommend a home with older children until we get to know him better. Murphy is very gentle with treats and his food. Murphy has been 100% housetrained since coming to his foster home. There has been no accidents and no marking. He settled right in and loves his pet bed. Murphy has clearly had an indoor life before his 7 month adventure. If only dogs could talk. If you are interested in giving Murphy a forever home or have any questions, please send an email to or fill out an adoption application at This is the first step of the adoption process. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-29-00005Betsey (female)

Cocker Spaniel Mix    Age: Senior

    Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Betsy Boo is a 10-11 year old cocker spaniel and beagle mix that was born and raised as an outside dog, but has learned the trick of adjusting just fine to life on the inside (of a house that is!). Betsy is a sweet and very shy girl that loves to snuggle on the couch and keep a look out in the front window for that dastardly mailman. Betsy takes some time to warm up to people but she loves other dogs and has no problems with cats. As a matter of fact, Betsy needs to be in a home with another dog. Being near her canine friends helps give her confidence and a feeling of security. When she gets to ... (Read More)know you, she also really enjoys a good belly rub! Betsy doesn't really play with toys anymore, but she does enjoy sneaking toys away from her doggy buddies and sitting on them. We think she is getting a chuckle from hiding their toys! Betsy is fostered with 2 children and is fine with them, but she can get scared of big noises and if someone tries to approach her too quickly. She will only try to run away, though. Miss Betsy doesn't growl or snap. When Betsy came to us, she was heartworm positive but she has been treated and is doing well. Her teeth are also not in the best shape, but she can still eat hard food with no problem. Betsy is mostly housebroken and sheds very little. Betsy is spayed and up to date on her shots. Fill out an adoption application online at if you think that Betsy Boo would be the right addition to your home. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cocker Spaniel in Indiana
    Cocker Spaniel Dogs can make good pets in Indiana if they match your IifestyIe. The American Cocker Spaniel is a sociable, sunny, affectionate breed. Cocker Spaniels are good gun dogs but are especially suited to be family pets. Cockers need human companionship, affection, and attention. Most Cocker Spaniels are wonderful around children. Cockers are usually easy to train but can be difficult to housebreak. Cockers are energetic and need lots of exercise, but can adapt well to an apartment or a home with a small yard.
