Patrick was born under a tree in the woods. I rescued the litter and his mother when they were about 3 weeks old. Patrick grew up at the kennel house. He was a giant puppy, three times bigger then his siblings so everyone thought he would be huge when he was grown. He is about 10 lbs bigger then his brothers but that's it. Patrick lived with a foster home for a year and then was finally adopted 3 years ago at the age of 4. He was with that family for three years but recently returned b/c he was very protective of the family when people came into the house. The behaviorist we use told us he needs another dog. Another dog takes the "job" away from Patrick. It keeps him his mellow self and keeps him comfortable in his own skin. Sadly, in hindsight, I knew this when we adopted him out. I feared he wouldn't do well as an only dog since he had never been an only dog. The family tried for three years then just one day decided they didn't want him anymore.
Please consider adopting Patrick. He is such an angel and has a broken spirit now that he is back at the kennel house. Even after 4 years away, he knew me when I picked him up and he knew this place when he arrived. When we came in he went straight upstairs into the crate that used to be his. I love this boy so much and my heart is broken for him. I am hoping someone else can see the love he has to offer.
All dogs are fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neutered and Heartworm negative unless otherwise noted. We require an adoption application, home visit and adoption fee of $200 ($150 for senior). You also get a two week trial period with all of our dogs. To apply, simply go to www.forgottenpaws.com.
Many of our dogs are in foster homes all over Atlanta, thus an application is required before an appointment can be set to meet a dog.
