She's been at our sanctuary since her rescue as an abandoned puppy. Our vet's initial guesstimate of her age when we found her was about 4 or 5 months of age. We've given her all her needed shots and spayed her. Then set about gaining her trust. She acted out the way many neglected, abused dogs do by biting, barking, tearing things up, and being the instigator of many scuffles. Patience, firm loving hands and voice, and (silly as it may sound to you) explaining what her place in the pack was has made all the difference. Today she is a completely different dog, although she still has flashes of mischief now and again.
Patricia has some heeler, border collie and maybe even pit bull in her--it is impossible to determine. She stands 34" at the top of her head, current on shots and weighed 76 pounds at last checkup. She loves being outdoors, in front of the fireplace or a/c - depending on the weather and is a terrific watchdog. She will do best in a home without small children or grandchildren (under ten) as she is very strong and will usually greet you with her full body weight - we call it the Patricia tackle.
If you have room in your life and heart for this amazing little lady, please call today. (870) 431-8354 or email firstname.lastname@example.org We'll be happy to tell you how easy it is to apply for adoption and rescue Patricia. And we can even transport her to a location near you for a small fee.
