Patch is a friendly boy who has a very affectionate side. He has come from a farm environment so has never lived indoors or been used to busy places. Patch has shared his kennel with another male dog but he can be reactive to some new male dogs he meets. His recall is quite good and he has been used to free running on the farm, running alongside the quad bike. Patch has only seen cats from a distance on the farm. He likes company and is a little more confident with women as opposed to men. Patch has only really traveled in the back of a farm pick up before. We are unsure of his age as we were told he is approximately 2 years, however we feel he is older. He loves cuddles and interaction.
Patch's owner sadly passed away and a family member could no longer look after him.
Patch would suit a rural home, with an owner who understands that he has not lived indoors before, and has lots of time to exercise and train him. He hasn't had much interaction with young children, and given that he can be a little mouthy, he is looking for an adult only home.
If you'd like to help rehome Patch simply complete the Homefinder Questionnaire to get started.
Susie was 7 when her owner died in 2013. Happily she was adopted very quickly and here her new owners have kindly provided this lovely update
