Bio:
Murphy is a Beardie that is a Achondroplasia Dwarf. What this means is that his head and body are of normal proportions, but his legs are abnormally short. He is a very loving dog who just can't get enough attention. As part of his condition, his right leg and paw grew 90 degrees pointing outwards. When he was 10 months old, he had an operation where the vet cut through the leg bone and rotated his leg back 80 degrees. UPDATE: Murphy had the plate removed from his leg and is doing great! Running , bouncing and jumping are now his very favs.
