Patti is a senior lady looking for some new digs.
Patti is a 12 year old ACD who came to us when her owner became ill and was unable to care for her. She settled in to her foster home surprisingly well, and is as sweet as can be. She previously lived with two male cattle dogs, and is living with two younger females in her foster home, with no problems. Patti is very laid back and low energy, although she does have a playful streak and likes to throw toys around, wrestle with her dog bed, and try to engage one of her foster sisters in a bit of play. Due to her age she needs a quiet home with no children.
Patti is happy to explore the yard and lay in the sun, but her favorite thing is to be near her person. She would benefit from mentally engaging activities such as puzzles or nosework games around the house, that don’t require a lot of physical challenges, but will keep her active mind engaged.
At 55 lbs. Patti is a bit overweight and will need continued diet management in order to drop those extra pounds. She does have some arthritis in her back legs, and has started a supplement that her vet feels will help her move more comfortably, which will help with weight loss also.
Patti is spayed, housebroken, micro chipped, and up to date on all vaccinations and flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. She is also crate trained and has no resource guarding issues.
Older dogs can make wonderful companions, and Patti is no exception! She’s a lovely dog who lost her home through no fault of her own, and needs a gentle place to land in her remaining years.
Patti is being fostered in South Williamsport, PA.
