Patches Currently Needs a Foster! Fenced Yard Required. No Cats.
Patches is a 1-year-old Pittie / Pointer mix with adorable markings around his eyes. He dog was just saved from a high-kill shelter in California and is now in Seattle to find his forever home.
Has become attached, very quickly. He doesn’t like to be out of sight – for instance, him in the backyard, me in the house. He wants constant attention. Patches is pretty good with walking with the leash. He LOVES to go on walks and his nose never leaves the ground. He does pull some, but it varies. When playing with toys, Patches will bring the toy back so you can throw it again (most of the time). Getting him to let go isn’t too bad, you just have to watch your fingers. I say “release” and work it away from him. He loves to chase the toys and then run around.
Patches is a little clumsy, he might need some friends his size to play with. Patches is NOT a vocal dog AT ALL. I have heard 4 total barks out of him, one growl and a very few whines (from Saturday to today, Monday). The growl was at my Dad. His stomach growled and Patches growled back. A quick talking to helped Patches see my Dad wasn’t a threat.
