Murphy's handler is PC Nadine Wilson who works in the IRC, covering Exeter, East and Mid, but works from an office in Okehampton. Nadine is passionate about health and wellbeing and has recently qualified as a gym instructor, and in health, food and nutrition.
Nadine said: "Murphy loves to go for runs, walks with us and he loves swimming in the river with my daughter. He is ball crazy and will play fetch ALL day long, dropping the ball at your feet so that you don’t have to move to throw it.
"He has also learnt how to amuse himself with his ball by sitting at the top of a slope in my garden, allowing the ball to roll down it and then retrieving it and then rolls it down the slope again. He loves people and would love to meet you. We can meet you in the office, outside or go for a walk."
