The message on Facebook read, "Please trust me on this but if this dog isn't gone from where he is ASAP he will be Bait or made to fight. He is not a fighting dog and definately not bait....Please share and lets get this baby a safe place to land!!"
The rescue of PATCH was a good save. This dog was networked by a fellow rescue in GA where I learned the dog was being groomed for dog fighting because of his size. He already had the battle scars of being submitted to dogs that would bite him trying to initiate a fight.....but, he would not fight.
And the words of his owner was "fat boy will either learn to fight or find himself as bait"
And so, today Patch is free. He is a Diamond Dog, he has been fully vetted and cared for and is in his foster home in Delaware until we find his forever home. He is a beautiful, loving sweet dog that is around a year old. Patch weighs around 65 lbs and will need a home that can offer him lots of play time because he is still young and full of energy.
Beautiful Patch's foster mom updated us with this message:
Patch is here in Delaware and I cannot say enuff nice things about this guy.....he is sweet, and snuggly......he lives with 7 other dogs larger, smaller, and same age and size...also cats....very respectful if everyone...very gentle kind little guy....will eat anything...will sit for treat before yo say "sit".....Patch is the kind of kid that loves attention, loves to be touched, but also can play alone with a toy and amuse himself....will hang out in his kennel, nap in the igloo....rarely barks......he hasnt been around kids and I will work on that, but i just can't imagine him being anything but the love sponge he is.....this one us going to be hard to give up!
