Albert is a handsome large shepherd that came to the Mission as an owner surrender. He has an estimated birthdate of 08/05/2019. We don't know much about his previous life except that it was not structured and he did not receive the best from people in regards to his physical health, or mental well being. He has been with us since August, and originally arrived weighing in at over 150lbs, so fat that he was hardly able to function. He was disconnected from people and used his obesity and lack of meaningful bond with people to get his way by shoving, air snapping and being a general uncooperative jerk.  Over the past many months, Albert has lost well over 50lbs and is in healthy body condition. He is now crate trained and house trained with the skills to walk on leash, and he's now bonded with his fosters and enjoys spending time with the people he knows and he plays ball, goes for walks, and snuggles. He knows sit and down, and he's learning more and more about household manners and self control. He is prong collar and muzzle conditioned. Albert will not be the easiest to take care of because he's spent many years disengaged with people and feeling like crud because of how insanely fat he was. He's like a teenager finally growing out of the angst stage. For this reason, he would be best adopted by someone interested in working with a special dog who requires patience, and someone who has owned a power breed dog before.  Albert loves his time outside and enjoys watching the perimeter of his yard and sun bathing. He must have a secure yard with 6' fencing and he must not be left outside unattended if there's a chance people could reach through the fence and attempt to touch him because he can be barrier reactive. He loves to go for walks and hike, and his stamina and ability to adventure is now that of a regular dog.  He cannot be expected to be housed with cats, and after numerous attempts to introduce him to other dogs in his foster home, he's clearly set on being an only pet. He should not be housed with children under the age of 12. He is not outwardly aggressive to people in any way, but he's pushy, and had been unaware of how to interact with people before joining the Mission. His ideal family would be a quieter home with a few core handlers. He would be content to stick around the house and wouldn't like to be expected to go to crowded, high stimulus areas. He could be a great family guardian or travel companion for someone competent in managing power breeds.  Albert comes neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed.  His adoption also includes a custom fit muzzle, martingale style collar, leash, prong collar and food sample, as well as support and advising on his adaption period to his new home. His adoption fee is $200. To be considered to adopt, please begin by submitting an application at www.murcismission.org. Thank you!  show less

Have you ever wanted your very own Chupacabra house pet? This is your once in a lifetime opportunity!  Annie is a sweet, submissive little spirit that came to the Mission from Roosevelt Animal Shelter in Utah. She has an estimated birthdate of 05/06/2021. Annie has a CRAZY haircoat with a mixture of wire hair and soft curls. She is also dilute in color, and the wild patchy lengths and curls of her coat may also be due to Color Dilution Alopecia (CDA). Regardless of why her hair is the way it is, she is in normal health otherwise and has had a skin scrape and broad spectrum anti parasitic treatment which would be curative of anything mites or parasites that could have been on the skin surface.  Annie's breed is unknown, but based on her looks and coat, it's likely that she is some kind of doodle that didn't turn out how the breeder had intended and she ended up abandoned. The only way to determine what she is for sure would be a DNA test through Embark.  Annie is lovely with people of all ages and with dogs of all shapes and sizes. She does chase cats, so should either be in a cat free home or a home with a cat that is very accustomed to dogs and won't run from her.  Annie is crate and leash trained and is still working on house training and basic commands. She's never been a house pet before from what we can tell, so she's still working on confidence and self control on the household basics like walking on all surfaces, staying off the counters and waiting before going through doorways.  Annie will be spayed on 06/23 and will then be ready to go home to her new family. Her adoption fee is $200 and she comes spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed. Hee adoption includes her food sample, paperwork, leash, collar, ID tag and  harness. To be considered to adopt, please begin by visiting www.murcismission.org and sending in an application.  Thanks for checking out our girl!  show less

Buttercup is a beautiful, energetic, athletic and loyal bloodhound shepherd mix with an estimated birthdate of 12/14/2019. She was transferred to us from Animal Care of Davis County struggling with fear of strangers.  Buttercup is learning the ways of the house dog and making great progress with crate training, basic obedience skills, leash manners and self control. She's a bit of a busy body around the house, but settles down quick in her crate. Buttercup is great with dogs and cats, and a confident dog would be a great addition to her life to help her continue to blossom in her human trust building.  Buttercup's biggest challenge in life is a lack of social skills with people. Once she's comfortable with someone, which only takes a few days, she's quite affectionate and trusting, but when it comes to strangers, she's very leary and if she feels backed into a corner she will air snap. She has not bitten a person and does not have a bite history, but if she felt threatened by someone and they wouldn't slow down and allow her to assess the situation, she would likely bite. For this reason, we suggest a home with no kids, or kids that are in their teen years, and a handler that's comfortable telling strangers that Buttercup is not available to be touched. After all, it's not a dog's responsibility to be a source of tactile entertainment for unknown people.  Buttercup is muzzle conditioned and comfortable wearing her muzzle in public, and her adoption will include a custom fit biteproof poly coated wire mesh muzzle that she can wear comfortably any time she's going to a busy public location or stressful situation.  Buttercup's ideal family would be one that will meet her where she's at and give her time to adjust, but also hold her accountable to continue to progress by not coddling her and playing into her fear. She would love to be a hiking and adventure companion, and would be a superior choice for a family looking for a partner in crime for an existing dog.  Buttercup comes spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed, and has also has corrective surgery for entropion completed. Her adoption fee is $200 and includes a food sample, leash, collar, ID tag, and muzzle. To be considered to adopt, please visit www.murcismission.org and send in an application.  show less

Feral Baskin and Pawgavan Antel are a wonderful and social pair of kitties transferred to us from our friends at The Furry Farm Rescue after they traveled all the way to Whitehall, MT to assist in a cat hoarding situation. These two have decided that the tame kitty life is the life for them and they love giving head boops, snuggling, and being held. They have an estimated birthdate of 02/21/2021.  They would do fine in a home with other cats and with kids old enough to give them space as needed, and we don't have history with them in regards to dogs, but their happy go lucky personalities indicate they would likely be ok with a respectful dog.  Both are cat box trained and as long as potential adopters are willing to secure them in a single room to help them acclimate to a normal, healthy household, they should make the transition well. Sometimes cats from hoarding situations can become overwhelmed when given an entire clean and uncontaminated household from the start and will hide as a result when securing them in a single room and working up to the whole house could have prevented the hiding period.  Both come altered, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed. They can be adopted together or separate. The adoption fee for one, or both is $50. To be considered to adopt please begin by visiting www.murcismission.org and sending in an application.

Mac and Jack are a beautiful pair of orange tabby brothers that were recently returned to the Mission for house soiling upon which it was discovered that Jack had developed another UTI which has since been treated. The boys have an estimated birthdate of 05/10/2020.  At the time of their return, both of them were very stressed out, but after a few weeks, they have come out of their shells and are feeling really well. They would do best in a quiet home where they can get accustomed to the new environment at their own pace. They have experience with dogs, cats and kids, but are not ideal for home environments with high volumes of stimulus in the form of many animals or children.  Mac and Jack's ideal adopter would be someone with a touch of patience and understanding who will give lots of love. Mac is a major story teller and always has to let his people know what he thinks and Jack watches from the sidelines. To prevent further UTI activity, the boys have a prescription for Royal Canin Urinary SO+Calm which is a prescription diet that they have both been doing really well with. They will come neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed. Their adoption fee is $50 as a pair. To be considered to adopt, please visit www.mircismission.org and send in an application.

Juliet is a cute and athletic German Shorthair Pointer mix with an estimated birthdate of 04/06/2016. She was transferred to the Mission from North Utah Valley Animal Services.  Juliet is a work in progress on basic skills, seems to be house trained, knows sit and down, and is doing ok with leash training and crate training although she's reluctant to enter the crate. She does have some separation anxiety which manifests in vocalization and crate chewing but we are working on it. We don't know much about Juliet's background, so it's hard to say what her past life was like.  Juliet has not enjoyed the company of the other animals in her foster home so far, so she is best suited as an only pet. She is athletic and capable, so would love a household that can still get her out for an adventure now and then, or even just for a nice neighborhood walk a few times per week.  Juliet loves snuggling and would be a perfect Netflix and chill companion. Her ideal future could be with someone retired who just wants a household companion or with a family with older kids/a couple or single person seeking to add a quadrped to daily life.  Juliet comes spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed. Her adoption fee is $200, and includes her leash, collar, ID tag, original paperwork and a food sample.

Sam I Am is a SPECIAL NEEDS case. She is currently very happy, but she does have musculoskeletal abnormalities that will never heal, and is incontinent. If you cannot handle doggie bowel movements and urine in your home DAILY and are unable to accept the heartbreaking truth that due to Sam I Am’s musculoskeletal abnormalities she may not be able to live a full length life, Sam I Am is not the perfect pup for you. Sam I Am is a 30lb DNA tested Siberian Husky Airedale Terrier mix who came to us from our friends over at NEWSNA with an estimated birthday of 10/28/20.  Before she was even a week old Sam suffered from an unknown injury leaving her with two fractured back legs, an aggressive infection in her left hip, and multiple fractures in her pelvis, sacrum, and based of tail. Due to the extent of the infection and injuries, Sam I Am has lost her left hip and is incontinent. She takes proin daily which helps her release her urine in larger bursts rather than leaking, and she does successfully get a lot of her urine expelled outside.  Sam is crate trained, leash trained, and knows many commands including wait, sit, and down. She is a breeze on hiking trails, and she is easy to take in public places with her diaper on.  Despite her current life experience Sam is a happy, curious girl who loves cuddles, walks, and even short-medium hikes of up to 4-6 miles! Though she does pretty good moving around, she does have trouble climbing stairs and walking at steep inclines. As of now, her quality of life is great and there is nothing indicating that she won't be able to have a relatively normal, although possibly messy life. Because she is missing part of her hip and pelvis, her lifelong medical journey will be as unique as a thumbprint and there is no way for anyone to know how it may play out as the years pass by.  Sam I Am is good with other dogs, cats, and small animals. She has lived with Dr. Laura for her entire life since being found at  one week of age and she is uber social as a result. She would be happy to have any family that would be comfortable with her partial incontinence. Any kids in her life should be old enough to be able to avoid potty accidents and even help clean up. Aside from her incontinence related troubles, she's an excellent and ideal family companion.  Sam comes spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed. Her adoption fee is $200.

Scooter is an adorable and soft havanese or terrier mix of some sort with an estimated birthdate of 04/21/2016. He is sable in color and weighs approximately 20lbs.  He was transferred to Murci's Mission from Roosevelt Animal Shelter in Utah.  So far Scooter has a striking resemblance to the Lorax, and although he doesn't speak for the trees, he does speak for his foster home by demanding guests do not enter. We have been working hard to get him acclimated to strangers and to not be possessive of the household.  Scooter bonds with people and is very loving once he's used to them. He's also ok with dogs and cats. Because he's uncertain of people in some situations, it's best if he is adopted to a home without small children and crated or put in a separate room if children visit the home since entering guests are the hardest thing for him to overcome so far.  Scooter appears to have pigmentary keratitis, which is an excess of melanin within the eye causing darkened lesions on the eye and limiting vision. He has not yet been to the eye doctor to confirm the diagnosis and we are eagerly awaiting his scheduled appointment on 05/19/2022. We will update his bio as soon as we have a definitive diagnosis. Regardless of his diagnosis, his vision troubles are likely a contributing factor to his stranger fear.  Scooter is crate and leash trained, and still working on house training. His previous life doesn't appear to have included much interaction with people or learning and he doesn't know any other commands yet. He loves snuggling and spending quiet time in his crate or around the house.  Scooter comes neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed. His adoption fee is $200 and includes his leash, collar, ID tag, and any associated medications for his eyes if needed. To be considered to adopt Scooter, please begin by sending in an application at www.murcismission.org.  Thank you for checking out our boy!  show less
