PATRICK is a 17 pound smooth coat and is like the older brother of the group. He is their leader. Patrick has been the first to learn new things like crate and sit. He has not mastered them yet, but he is doing very well. Patrick was the first to transition over to the big dog room and is learning boundaries from the older pack members. He is being very respectful towards them. PATRICK loves people, gets along great with other puppies and adult dogs, but will need a cat-free environment. He is too interested and overexcited when he sees felines.
Arriving to our rescue on March 17th, the St. Paddy’s Day puppies range from 13 to 17 lbs. With their bat ears, slim bodies, and cat-like feet we believe them to be McNab / border collie mixes. These puppies are coming PARTIALLY SPONSORED. Their adoption fees will be $125 (plus the $75 spay / neuter deposit (that’s a $300 sponsored reduction). The six puppies were split into two foster homes, with Patrick, Quinn, and Kelly in one home while Owen, Nora, and Erin are in another.
PATRICK is very athletic, but not as intense as his sister Quinn. He settles down nicely when inside in his play area or crate. Patrick can be very vocal when he wants something but is showing improvement with that as well. Patrick is highly treat motivated and will need a lot of mental and physical stimulation to be the best dog he can be. Nosework or flyball might be activities he’d enjoy and do well at. Patrick is starting to show interest in toys, most notably rope toys. In short bursts he’ll play tug with his person and his brother. He will chase and pick the ball up, but quickly drops it to chase his siblings or head back to his foster parents.
PATRICK is making good progress on potty habits. He got the knack of the doggie door very quickly. Our doggie door leads from their daytime pen to a secure deck. He is doing better on his down time in the crate and travels quietly while crated in the car. PATRICK will zoom from the pen to his crate, then sitting nicely for his meal.
If you are looking for a fun-loving, active puppy to add to your family PATRICK might just be your boy.
PATRICK is started on her puppy vaccines, wormed, and microchipped. She is also on flea & tick and heartworm prevention. As a condition of puppy adoption, she will need to be altered when she reaches approximately 6 months (specific time to be determined by your vet). In addition to the adoption fee, puppy adoption requires a $75 spay/neuter deposit. Upon our receiving the spay/neuter certificate from you, the deposit is refunded.
