Patches Is a-Comin' Around

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.

her resemblance to Molly who I took into foster from BACS about a month ago is striking...

Patches is not only a cutie, but such a WONDERFUL girl. She is so responsive and sweet. She loves to run in the grass and rest in the sun! We have so much fun on our walks together.
