Meet Patches

Howdy! I'm Patches, a half-a-dog high and two dogs long. About 1-year-old and 15 lbs, I am a shorty and really very dapper. I am a gentleman on my leash and I walk right by your side like the refined boy that I am. At the same time I am fun loving, cuddly and love tummy rubs and to give you lots of kisses. I will also share your treats if you want me to.

Even though I am very young before I was rescued my life was very hard and I was hurt a lot by a very mean man and he also didn’t like to give me much to eat. I didn’t think it was possible to ever trust people but I have learned in foster care that it is not only possible but it is a good thing.

I have to have a special home as I have special needs, the biggest one is trust. I have made amazing progress but I will need help and patience in transitioning to my new home. Even though children can be nice, it is best that I not be around them as I am not sure how to act and if they will try to hurt me. I do like woman better but I am learning to trust my foster dad and I take a pill each day to help me keep calm and they do help a lot. Although I live in a pack now, I can be bossy and so I will do very well as an only dog.

I am going to need a home I can transition into so that might mean coming to meet me and taking me for a walk and then having me for a day and then working my way up to an overnight until we both feel comfortable.

If you think you are the person for me, please fill out an application and a very detailed letter will be sent to you and we can see if we can work this out.

I am worth it and my foster Mama keeps telling me it wasn’t my fault that I got hurt so much and I believe her and trust her.
