Patrick is about 10 weeks old and currently weighs six pounds.
Hello future family:
My name is Patrick. I am a little puppy with a big personality. I love and do all things that most puppies do. I like to explore with my feet, nose and teeth. The world is super cool and new so I want to test it all out. I LOVE to play with my toys, but I love even more gathering all the toys (among other things) and drag them to my crate or under the table or under the couch. If you are missing something, chances are you’ll find it somewhere I like to hang out! I enjoy my crate and my big fluffy bed. I love my bed so much that I like to drag it around and dig at it and make cool holes so I can pull out that white fluffy stuff. You might hear me whine a little here and there, but generally I am as quiet as a little mouse. I don’t mind playing with other dogs or humans of all shapes, colors and sizes. I am super small and a puppy so I have to potty often and don’t yet understand where I can or can’t potty. In my play pen though, my foster mom has these cool pads that I usually do my business on. But sometimes I find that those are fun to play with, so you might find them bunched in a corner somewhere. But no worries, I’ll learn. Puppyhood is all about me learning to grow up into the best dog you’ll every love! I can’t wait to meet you and for you to take me home to be your very best buddy!
- Love, Patrick
