Apart from my ongoing work with Joey - the John Blutarski of the shelter - I've really taken a liking to Patches. She came in as a very skittish, nervous dog who was very uncomfortable around other dogs.
She's still got work ahead of her, but she's doing better on all counts. She's gaining confidence. She's still a little too focused on other dogs, but she didn't make a peep during our walk Sunday.
She's a bit of a nervous Nellie in her kennel, but check out how relaxed she can be when she's out...
Who's your daddy?
Nothing like a nice Sunday afternoon for lazing around.
Earth to Patches...come in, Patches...
Please redirect your attention to the tall, handsome volunteer.
That's a little more like it.
Time to resume our previously scheduled grass chewing.
With more walks and socialization, she will make a perfectly good dog. I'll try to walk her every time I stop at the shelter. If you have chance, it would be great for her to get some additional walking.
