Patches is a roughly 12-18 month old Lab-Dane mix. He is a bigger boy who will require a family who can commit to giving him the level of exercise necessary to keep him fit, active, and out of trouble! Patches' ideal family will be one that plans to make him an important part of their life and wants to include him in all of their adventures.
Patches has been well-socialized with other dogs and would be great as an addition to a family that has another dog or as a dog bachelor. Patches has also been around small kids and he would be a great dog for a kid to grow up with.
While Patches has done well with his house manners, it can take time for dogs to acclimate into their new homes and he should be adopted by a family who plans to give him the time and patience he needs to do so. Even house trained dogs can have accidents when the move into new environments, so his new family should understand this. Patches' new family should be one that will help him continue to grow into a great dog through positive reinforcement.
Patches should be adopted by a family who plans to make him a part of their family. We do not adopt to families who plan to keep the dogs as outside dogs or who plan to leave them unattended for long periods of time outdoors - for example leaving them outside during the entire workday.
Patches has been fully vetted (neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped). He is too young to be neutered, so his adoptive family will sign a contract agreeing to have this done as soon as he is old enough Not having him neutered is not an option and will be considered a breach of the adoption contract.
The first step in our adoption process is to fill out an application. This can be accessed via our website at www.reggiesfriends.org. Please hover over the adoptables tab and the application link will appear. Our general adoption procedures are also accessible via this link.
