Marsha adopted Murphy Rose from Animal House Shelter in Illinois after she was picked up from the street. Her vet guesses she’s a Beagle-Rottweiler mix, maybe about seven years old. Marsha says she’s mellow, quiet, and very obedient.
Murphy favors visiting with children and the elderly, says Marsha. Before joining Dogs On Call, they visited residents at St. Mary’s Care Center and helped with a summer reading program at the Mt. Horeb Public Library. They hope to broaden their visits as members of Dogs on Call.
Marsha is a 6th grade language arts and literacy teacher, so she is very busy during the school year. In the summer, she has more time for favorite activities of reading, canoeing, kayaking, gardening, and traveling.
