Facts about Patty
Breed: Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
I am already spayed.
Patty is a joyful pooch! She'll come right to you when she sees you with her tail wagging and body wiggly. She's a playful pup, and loves to play with toys and appears to be housebroken. Throw a ball her way, and she'll dash after it! Patty loves to get attention and has lots of love to give. Patty would be best in a home without young children. She seems to be a little anxious around other dogs, so we recommend that Patty be the only dog in her home! She's a smart gal, and knows quite a few tricks! Ask her "sit", "shake", "speak", and "lie down" and she'd be happy to show off for you! Patty is great on a leash, and would love to be taken on nice, long walks!
Go-Getter Want to get more exercise? Action is my middle name. My 'let's GO!' lifestyle will keep you motivated to get outside and move. I've got tons of energy, and just like the sun, I'm burning and working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I'll run for miles, chase a ball for hours, and still want to play at the end of the day.
We provide compassionate care for impounded animals at the shelter, as well as adoption and lost dog services to the community. We also educate the public and teach dog owners to be more responsible citizens.
Our mission is to enforce the dog laws in Franklin County and keep the public safe from animal-related health or safety dangers.
We respond to service requests, investigate complaints about nuisance, dangerous and vicious dogs, investigate dog bites, impound stray and dangerous dogs, file criminal charges, make court appearances, and assist the police in crimes involving dogs, injuries caused by dogs and livestock attacks.
