Patches Patches

Meet Patches. He is a nice young Wire-hair Terrier mix looking for a new home. He is a GREAT dog who loves to play. You can see a video of him playing with Pearl on our pet finder site. He would be great fun to take to the dog park. He's not for apartment living as he's a country bumpkin who is used to easy access to the outside. He is neutered and up to date on core vaccines. He weighs 35 lbs. He has lived with three cats and a senior dog as well as his sister, Lucy. He takes treats gently and rides well in the car too. His foster mom says: Most Happy Fella are the best words to describe Patches. He loves soft toys and keeps busy moving them around, inside and out. But mostly he loves his people. He's always at your side, but not demanding attention, just shadowing. When you are sitting, he's sleeping nearby. He especially loves sports on TV because for hours he gets a lap to rest his head on and nice long belly rubs. He also loves playing with his dog friends. Patches is totally housebroken. He is crate trained, but doesn't love it because wants to be with his people. He will settle down in the crate after a few minutes. He's learning that not all furniture is for dogs, just the TV couch. He's always up for a walk. He pulls a little on the leash and is on the lookout for squirrels, but his foster mom and dad are seniors and don't keep his brisk pace. The slight pulling is easily corrected with standard obedience training. On a walk recently, we met kids on scooters and bikes and he shied away, perhaps because he hasn't had experience with kids. Otherwise, all in all, Patches is a really nice, fun and oh-such-a-love dog! Please apply online to speed the process if you can. You can meet him by private appointment as he is in a foster home.
