Murphy is Amanda Clase's dreamy, solid, almost pure-white pit bull mix. Adopted at 9 weeks old, Murphy quickly demonstrated the sweet temperament of a therapy dog, and now pursues a career of comforting the patients of Martha Jefferson Hospital in Virginia. You can read more about Murphy in Amanda's moving account of her therapy dogs at StubbyDog.org, here.
Murphy’s comical, joyful expression and the little socks he wears to provide him traction on the slick hospital floors entices folks to invite him over and also gives me the opportunity to educate people about pit bull type dogs. However, it is his personality and love of his work that has changed more minds than I ever will. -- Amanda Clase
Our plush pit bull toy Murphy is 18" long and weighty at 3/4 pound. He's made with super-soft velour and satin, with child-safe embroidered eyes and nose. Unique to stuffed animal Murphy are his little striped socks, just like the socks the real-life Murphy wears on those slippery hospital floors! Like all CharlieDog plush toys, he wears a colorful collar embroidered with the word "Adopt". He has a serial number (from 1 to 2000) on his care tag, and his name embroidered on a patch on his leg.
Five dollars of every plush toy Murphy is donated to Pit Bull Rescue Central,
