Patches Must Have:
- Someone home most of the time and another active, playful dog around my age. A family would be lovely.
- Recent experience with a young, active pup a plus
Hello New Best Friends!
My name is Precious Patches – and I’m a sweetheart of a bichon. I’m 2 (years old that is) and a perky and playful guy weighing 17 pounds. My Aunties called me Patches because I have a beautiful white coat and patches of apricot on my ears and body.
My foster Mom says I’m a great communicator who is also happy and very affectionate. When I first wake up in the morning I go directly to Mom for my ‘morning cuddles.’ I look her in the face and smile (Mom says I do that all the time – smile that is!) wait to be brushed and petted, then snuggle for all I’m worth – and that’s a lot. I also like to stand up and put my paws on her as if asking for a hug. That’s why Mom says I’m a great communicator who communicates my affection very well.
Did I mention that I’m super smart, know commands (including where to potty) and that I love dogs, those funny creatures called cats (yes, truly I do. They outnumber me 4 to 1 in my foster home so that’s pretty amazing!) I also love people, walks, rides in the car (anytime and anywhere! – and I’m amazing at a drive-thru) Why I’m just about the most perfect companion in the world! Well, that is unless you are a giraffe, a hippo or a tiger. (Mom says I’m being a little silly but she knows what I mean!)
I have a very sweet energy and love to walk. I’m always aware of where people are and what they are doing. That goes for the cats, too. I’m also very brave, trusting and have very good manners. I’m a pup waiting for friends with whom I can play. Mom says I desperately want to play with other dogs. There are dogs on all sides of Mom’s back fence. I SO want to be with them! One of them runs up and down the fence with me. That’s not the same as playing but I know my day is coming! I’m waiting for a BFF dog friend with whom I can run, romp and have a good time.
One of the things that makes me special is that I’m very sensitive. I pick up on people’s feelings and want them to be happy. Mom says that makes me special! And I’m special in another way too. When I first became a FurKid I was pretty sick. I had this infection that had eaten away part of my nose and it was very, very sore. Mom took me to this really neat person called an ‘animal dermatologist’. He’s what she calls a specialist. He’s giving me medicine to help my nose heal. He says in a few weeks my nose will be much better and not hurt any more. I’ll be glad when that happens and am happy to report that it’s feeling better already.
I’m a people-friendly guy who is eager to please, very smart (and aware) and a major cuddle bug. I’m awfully good at a lot of things and smart enough to learn more! What I really need now is a forever family to call my own and a FurKid buddy to be my friend. I like children too so a FurKid buddy and a child would be doubly great! Do I sound like your kind of guy? If so please complete our application and ask for me. I’m waiting to meet you!
Tail wags and cuddles,
Precious, Personable and Perky Patches
