Murphy was rescued many years ago.  We were told he was aggressive, but he was just traumatised.  When we got him, as a 5 month old puppy, he'd been beaten up and abused all his life. It took time, but eventually he learned to trust us.
We cared for Murphy for many years....   not sure exactly how long, but 10yrs+, and he had become a very distinguished grey around the nose.
He was attacked by another dog, who caused a lot of damage to his throat.  We rushed him to the vets, but even after 2 operations, he still didn't make it.  He died at home, surrounded by those who loved him.
His passing has left a big hole in our lives.
