Patty is a playful, smart girl who remembers that obeying commands is what gets her those treats.
This adorable girl is in foster care where she loves following her foster parents around the house when she isn't playing fetch and jumping and running in the yard.
Patty doesn't seem fond of other dogs and hasn't been observed with kids or cats yet, but she's very much a people dog who revels in their attention and loves to be in their company, especially when getting petting.
She's always excited to go on walks, and walks well on her leash. She seems house trained, too.
It should be noted that Patty has tested positive for heartworms. It's a treatable condition, and the cost is included in the adoption fee. You can read about heartworm treatment here:http://www.austinpetsalive.org/heartworms/
Patty will do best as the only pet in a home with a yard to play in and a family to play with. Come meet this beautiful girl and see if she isn't perfect for your home.
