Patches's Info...

I am already neutered and a special needs pet.

Patches's Story...
Patches was captured in a chicken coop when we picked him up. His owners were no longer taking care of him and he was running wild in the neighborhood, causing a nuisance for the neighbors.

He was a stallion when we picked him up, and he has since been gelded. He acts like he has not been handled a lot, but he has really come around after spending some time at the rescue.
He has an old hock injury that did not heal normally, so he has a limp. As a result he is available as a pet/companion only.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Patches, a Lyles Miniature was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Miniature for sale in Lyles, or seeking a Miniature from a breeder in Lyles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lyles already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lyles breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Miniature breeders who help with Miniature rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lyles paves the way for another one to be saved.
