I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
My name is Patch...I'm an old guy, 13 years old to be exact and my family ditched me.
I was very confused and quite cranky about the whole thing at first - which ended up with me being a bit vocal about my feelings and very very sad.
I've settled in now, and the nice side of my personality is emerging, although as an old fart I can be set in my ways. I like to be pet, but only when I say so, I'm cautious of men (the guy in my last home had a tendency to mistreat me so I am used to swift kicks, being yelled at and being sprayed in the face....didn't leave a real good impression, know what I mean?) but if you give me some space and let me work it out, we'll all get along just fine. I like other calm doggies, but pesky puppies get me all upset and fired up after a little while. I can do tricks and I take treats nicely. I do what I'm told if you know how to ask...don't yell at me, it doesn't work - but I do know a command when I hear one.
I like my foster home, they are nice to me, and they like me even though I'm cranky, but I really need a quiet permanent home where I can spend the rest of my days. My vets says I am in excellent shape, I still love to go on long walks and get very excited when anyone pulls out a leash because I think I should be going too!
Could you open your heart, accept me for who I am, and let me live with you??
My rescue says for the perfect home my adoption fee could be waived....its just real important that I find a nice home.
